Cleaning Progress

I was supposed to get all the cleanup done by the end of July, but that sure didn't happen. Still, there is progress. Today I finished tackling the supply closet. The cleanup was spurred on by the need to find my SnapSource snap setter. So, remembering my dear mother's favorite saying "cleaning up takes less time than searching," I started cleaning up the closet. Within half an hour, I had found the snap setter, and an hour later, the closet was far neater and more organized. The only thing left to do is make labels for some of the boxes so I know what's in them at a glance.

Here was the "before":

It was a wonder I could find anything in there at all!!

And, here's what it looks like now:

The floor is clear!! The loose stuff on the shelves is put away! When I showed my husband, he was speechless.
Now I can go finish my pants. All they needed was the darned snap!


  1. Great job in getting a good start in organizing your supply closet. When I organized my sewing studio I found it was extremely helpful to label everything because I was such a good organizer that I forgot where I put some things. LOL

  2. Good for you. I hate it when I have to search for something. It's why I try to always put everything back where it's supposed to be.


I would love to hear your thoughts... Please share!
