Looking Through My Closet

 Steph's Closet: I don't even know what is on these top shelves

Steph's Closet: I don't even know what is on these top shelves

I’m staring at my closet and wondering why I wanted to make my blog about cleaning it. I was thinking this would be a great way to kill two birds with one stone, but now I’m regretting it. First of all, am I crazy? There is so much stuff. I’m actually going to have to clean it. Second of all, I hate cleaning with a passion. Thirdly, I’m going to have to throw stuff out, and that kind of scares me. I like my things.

Throughout this blog, I will be cleaning my closet. I will show you my progress through photos and videos. There will be complicated answers to simple questions. I’ll post links to an assortment of sites that can help and inform anyone. I will be donating clothes, getting rid of my electronics in a safe way, and throwing away things that I don’t need anymore. There will be progress, I promise.

Now that you’ve seen my closet, you can tell I’m not a neat or organized person, though I may look it at school and work. I’ve even organized the family laundry room in my own special way. My room is a different matter. I won’t be showing pictures of the rest of my room, because this is about cleaning my closet, but let’s just say that it’s not organized either.

 Steph's Closet: A giant pile of mostly clothes on the floor. I don't know what is underneath it all, but you'll find out when I get to the bottom.

Question: Is my closet messy because I am lazy? Answer: Yes and no. Yes, because I am lazy more often than not. No, because I can be productive when I want to be. The real answer is, it’s cleaning and as I have stated above, I hate cleaning. The last thing I want to do when I come home from work and school is clean my closet. I always try cleaning my room on breaks from school but I never get very far. So why don’t I just suck it up and do it? To be honest, I’m not entirely sure why I don’t just suck it up. Cleaning my closet is a task so daunting that most of the time I just avoid it all together.

Getting rid of my things is scary, but I’ll have to do it. Watch me as I go through my closet and see the end result.
