Five Minute Challenge: Update On Our Closet

It’s been a crazy morning around here and there’s now way any Friday Fluffing Up is going to happen today . . . so I thought I’d update you on the state of our closet. 🙂  Hope you’ve had some time to catch up on your closets this week too!

Okie dokie. . . has anyone else worked on their closets this week? I had about an hour  last night to work on mine finally (yup, way more than five minutes. . . ), and here’s a peek at what’s heading to the donation bin:




I’ve got a blogging conference coming up next week and was hoping to hunt down a missing black sweater. . .  but after searching that full hour, it’s nowhere to be found. The one thing that I absolutely love about doing a good closet cleanout (despite the fact that I really don’t enjoy it all that much at all . . .)  is how it makes you so much more aware of what you already have.  I really thought I was going to have to spend way too much moo-lah as well as time shopping getting ready for the conference, but for the most part, I think I can make do with what’s been sitting in my closet along with some updated accessories.


(I did find these cute shoes yesterday on clearance for $10 to go with a dress I’ve had forever with nowhere to wear . . . nothing better than finding a great deal right in your closet! I never, EVER wear heels because I’m self-conscious about being too tall, so pray I don’t fall in these…. I know they’re short to most folks but they feel huge to me!) 

If your closet could use a little tlc, take a few minutes this weekend to really get to work. . . I promise you’ll be glad you did.  I really was amazed at the treasures I found, and maybe you will be too!


Do you have any tips on cleaning out a closet in your home?  I’d love to hear them! Leave a comment to share . . . misery loves company, right? 😉
