This One Has Been Pushed To The Bottom Of My To-Do List For Far Too Long

I did the kids' seasonal clothing swap quite a few weeks ago now. At the time, I just wanted to finish and get their drawers back in order, and get things taken up to the attic. So I just piled all of the clothes that needed to get hung up on a shelf in the closet. I fully intended to hang them up the next day.

And, well, my intentions were good but my follow-through was definitely lacking. I finally tackled that heaping pile today, thanks to the impetus provided by Tackle-It Tuesday.

Here are the lonely hangers that I started with. You can kind of see the pile of clothes underneath them.
Here's the pile of clothes, the pile of hangers, and the two children who think playing with a big pile of hangers is a great treat.
In less then 20 minutes, I had these two nice and neat piles. (And the reason I put this off for so long is what exactly?)
I quickly put everything back in the closet before Gracie woke from her nap. Finally, I am officially done with the clothing change-over. It feels good to cross that off my list. And it will feel even better tomorrow when I am trying to find clothes and I don't have to dig through a whole pile.

Yay! Good job. ; ) I always wonder why I put things off and put them off and put them off, and then they take 20 minutes or less, and I feel kinda sheepish for procrastinating. Speaking of, I still have stacks of clean laundry un-put away from Thursday's laundry...I think I'll follow your good example and get it done tomorrow. ; )

I totally understand clean-laundry-procrastination! What is it about that? It always feels so good to get it done though.

My kitchen post is scheduled to post in the morning!

Nice work! I still have to take my son's summer clothing out of his drawers so his fall/winter clothing fits in the drawers better. Maybe I'll do it tomorrow! :)

Isn't that the way it is? Something that seems so hard only takes a short time to do and then you're done with it. I wish I could apply that to everything.
Great job!

Great job! I always feel good when I go through my kids closets and get rid of unused clothing. That reminds me that I have to do that again!!

Great tackle!!

Hurray! I love the way clothes on hangers look. No idea why, lol.
Nice tackle!

That's my tackling project today, too. Too many clothes in too many piles, starting to drive me crazy. What a good reminder that I should just DO IT! Thanks.

Oh things get so hum-drum you wonder why you started. You just have to get in the mood. I need to take out the rest of the winter coats but. Snow is flying so I need to get going.

Great tackle! Recently, I did toy purging - soon it will be clothes. Thanks for the inspiration.

A Grammatical Disclaimer

I freely admit to consistently using improper grammar in the following areas:
1. I like run-on sentences.
2. I have a tendency to end sentences with a pronoun. (I really do. I can't help it.)
3. I always seem to use passive voice in my sentences. (See?)

I've been trying to break this habit, unsuccessfully, for years, so now I just accept that as my writing style, and since I'm not writing for grades anymore, I embrace it. (Again, see?)
