I'm totally knee deep in organizing shit. I've determined that my husband is a packrat.. he's kept so much military crap that it's ridiculous. I found day planners from 2001. Some of it I've tossed but some of it I've kept simply because I'm not really sure if it's important or not. I have a box for the I don't know stuff that he said he would go through when he gets back.
TIP: Clear plastic containers. They're cheap at Wal-mart of Target and are great for organizing. They create a ton more space in closets or garages, and since they're clear, it's easy to see what's inside. I used several of the 5 gallon ones for my purses and cleared off an entire shelf in our closet. Same with our den. I was able to transform a closet when we basically threw crap into a place that has room to spare. SCORE.
The main thing I cleaned during my 'spring cleaning' is my book shelves- I reorganized and indexed my books. I made a notebook for the books in storage (which allowed me to make room for more books on the shelf. I still have to work on cataloguing my text books but that is going to wait until summer vacation. I cleaned under my bed (very easy) and cleaned my dresser ajnd rearranged my furniture. Added a new book shelf next to my window. I washed my windoew (bleach and water to get rid of mold and mildew) Then I used windex. Shiny windows! I am working on moving my speakers still and cleaning off my pictures and wall posters. Yep I think that is it.
