spring cleaning

i don't typically come here to regurgitate information, but i loved this little blurb in april's martha stewart living (which i read saturday on the beach!), and thought i'd share:

spring cleaning cheat sheet: closets
remove all your belongings and separate them into five piles:
-things to keep
-things to keep that need repair
-things to give away or sell
-things to throw out
-things to store in another area of the home (such as that tennis racket, which belongs with your other sports equipment)
++place only the items in the first pile back in the closet.

i have several days off from work coming down the pike, and i'm weirdly excited use this method in every nook and cranny of storage space in our home.  i sorta do the closet thing every month anyway, but if martha tells you how to do something, you do it her way.

(that photo up there?  a prime example of my hoarding.)
