I am getting married in exactly one week. It’s hard to believe it’s so close. We are so excited. But we also have a number of things to do. Luckily, we’ve stayed pretty on top of our to-do list, so it’s pretty manageable. Mostly just stuff we can’t do until last minute.

Week 37’s challenge was to organize your outgrown and seasonal clothing storage. I didn’t really do anything for this challenge. I got rid of anything I no longer wear when we moved, and luckily I don’t really outgrow anything anymore (and I’m hoping to keep it that way). I also don’t really delineate between clothes by season. So, on to the next challenge.
Week 38’s challenge was to organize the bedroom. We don’t really use our master bedroom for much beyond sleeping. We don’t watch t.v. or read in there. So, it didn’t require any organizing. Our spare bedroom has more functions, but was already pretty organized from when we moved. We have bookshelves with books, D keeps his musical instruments there, we use it for some storage (in the closet and under the bed), and it is also currently storing wedding stuff. Once the wedding is over, we’ll be able to get rid of a bunch of stuff and make the closet more organized (though it’s not too bad right now).

Week 35’s challenge was to organize the linen closet/cabinet. When we moved, we got rid of any extra linens. Now, we have two sets of towels for each of us, two sets of towels for guests, sheets/comforter on both our bed and a spare bed, and an extra set for an air mattress. We keep the extra towels in a cabinet in our bedroom, and the extra bed stuff in a container under the bed.
Week 36’s challenge was to organize the master bedroom closet. When we moved, we both got rid of some items that are in our closet (clothes, purses, etc.). We each have our stuff hanging on a shelf in the closet. We also have some less-often used items stacked on top of that same shelf. D has a bin with drawers on the floor for some stuff that needs to be in a container but doesn’t fit elsewhere. We also have an over-the-door unit that we use for sweaters and such (especially in the winter)…things that we will use multiple times before being washed, but don’t want to hang them back in with the clean clothes.
