The first picture will explain the reason I couldn't psychologically get the kid's spring clothes out of storage until I cleaned the storage room. Normally I sort and organize the clothes in this room and bring them to and from their bedrooms to keep the clothes mess contained in one spot, but that wasn't an option because the room was beyond a disaster. It took me about two days, but I restored order to the room, packed up the five youngest children's winter clothes and brought out their summer wardrobe. It's such a good feeling to have all their drawers neat and tidy and know exactly what I have to buy whom to get through the summer!
Before (I warned you it was bad) -
After (could still use some work, but it's at a point I can handle) -
Once I got to the point of pulling out bins that I needed to unload into drawers, I had the kids carry them out and "stack them on the couch." This was the pile that awaited me - nice, really nice!
