Cleaning Out Our Closets




Richard and I bought a couple of these storage containers from Tesco Lotus last weekend.

They were on sale.  Only Thb199 each (Php275)

So I spent the last couple of days cleaning out our closets.   I downsized our wardrobes; took out the ones that we haven't worn in a long time -- small clothes, sweaters and jackets...I also cleaned out our storage closet and boy, I didn't know we had so much junk at home!  That, aside from the two luggages filled with old clothes and other stuff that we're planning to give away.  If I had my way, I would have had them shipped to Manila through our suki in Pratunam just to get rid of them, but they probably weigh around 50 kilos or more and that's going to cost a lot.  Thankfully, Richard goes on business trips quite frequently and he flies Thai airways so he  just brings home as much as his baggage allowance would allow.

I also saw this big paper bag filled with more paper bags:

And this does not include the other bag where I keep my gift boxes.  The funny thing is, I kept all these thinking that I might need them someday -- for what exact reason, I don't really know.  But that day never came, and they just kept piling up so they all had to go.  I gave them to the housekeeper, hoping that they will find a way to recycle the bags.

My closet looks better too, by the way.

 I labeled them with post-its for hassle-free searching.

Speaking of labeling, I also fixed Aly and Richard's DVD cabinet.  I know how these two tend to look for things with their mouth, not with their eyes i.e they will ask me, where is my (insert name of object here)? Even when it's right in front of them.  Sooo, I left a note for the two.
a
a
I should have taken a "before" photo.  Sayang!  Anyway, this is the "after".
a
a
Here's the note up close.  See how I used a bold marker?  Ewan ko na lang pag hindi pa nila ito nakita.  Hmph!
a
a
The next day, I was supposed to put the other DVD's in a spare container and I found this:

Looks like I have a magical elf in the house.  Heehee!

I don't think Aly was happy with my note so she made a new one.  Haha!
