My dirty little secret...

...is this. Our bedroom.
When I say "our" it's actually not "our" problem as in Aaron is involved. It's a Jamie problem. I have this really bad habit of um, not putting away my clothes. I live out of baskets. I'll put the kids clothes away. Aaron puts his clothes away. I just don't. Because I hate it. These baskets have been here for a few (ahem) months. Yeah...

Saturday I was feeling motivated and I made myself a to-do list for the weekend. Cleaning this cluster of a room was #1 on the list. Let the fun begin.
Originally, I was just going to just put away the baskets, but then the more I thought about it I figured I should go ahead and clean out my closet as well. So our bed was full of clothes that I was organizing.
I seriously found a pair of these in the back/bottom of the closet...
BIBS! Are you kidding me?! Those were "cool" like double-digit years ago. I was laughing so hard when I found them I had to try them on. Jenna saw them and said, "Did you guys used to live on a farm?!" hahahaha!

This was the goodwill pile. Brody was relaxing and watching t.v. I think I ended up with 5 bags full to donate.
Four hours and three bags of trash later, I had an organized closet again.
I told Aaron that the reason I don't clean more is that it sucks. He laughed. This though, this makes me so happy!
One of my 2012 resolutions is to put my clothes away AS SOON as I get done folding them. No matter what. Wish me luck!

GREAT Job! That is on my to do list today actually as I too hate putting clothes away and I have a month + sitting in my room. My biggest issue is hanging things up. The closet looks great!
