Karen and the Closets of Doom

So recently I decided to take my life into my own hands and organize our closets which we have nicknamed the "closets of doom". I try to keep them organized but its just so convenient to throw stuff in them and pretend they don't exist! Whenever they get too messy and out-of-control it makes me feel nervous, I just can't relax knowing there are piles of junk waiting to burst forth at any minute! So for the past few days I have been a very brave girl and emptied the closets of doom one by one in an effort to appease my uneasiness! Today I'm on the last closet and the one that scares me the most...the under the stairs closet. It holds Christmas stuff, luggage, stuff from when we were still single, left over wedding stuff, winter clothes and coats, Abby's old car seat and swing and who knows what else! I recently dove in it to get our luggage for our trip to Michigan. I found the luggage, shoved everything back in, and tried to forget the horrors I had seen there! The closet is located in the girls room and the roof is the bottom of our neighbours staircase. It is quite deep so all sorts of things fit in. As you can see from the picture below it is completely full from ceiling to floor!I actually like to keep it very full because it muffles the noise that our neighbours children and dog make who are constantly running up and down the stairs shrieking at all hours of the day and night. Seriously, their bedtime is like ten o'clock! Last winter the little girl went through a bout of ear infections and screamed constantly through the night, NOT FUN! Anyway.....once I get that closet organized I'll be blogging more on our family site with lots of fun pictures from the girls' birthdays!
