Obsessing and such…

Okay, I’ll admit. I am totally obsessing over this purge and cleaning of the boy’s closet/room. Today was spent making labels for things and finishing up the room clean.

I found a neat idea on this cute site for making labels for the Closetmaid canvas bins. I ended up using some scrapbook tin label thingys attached with little brads. I think they look nice and I can change them if needed.

Bins all labeled!

I have the boys undies, socks, pjs, and swimsuits in these. Their t-shirts are in the cabinet, their shorts and jeans in drawers. The rest of the clothes hang up. (I got rid of SO MANY clothes- trying to make my life easier.) The “too big” clothes are in large tubs on the top shelves.

Pirates and aliens that invaded the shelves when I wasn’t looking!

My oldest son was so adorable. He came in and said, “Wow, mom. This is so awesome!” The coolest part is the light that my honey installed. It’s motion activated so it turns on when you go in and turns off after a minute or two! (Wish I had them in every room!)

Now I’m anxiously awaiting the donation truck to come on Monday. I have about a whole bedroom full of stuff to give away! Two dressers, three car seats, about four boxes of clothes and two of toys! Maybe I’ll find more before Monday…

Sick Kid Update: We found out that the flu that the kids had was Type A. Even though the kids are better the school told me to keep them home the rest of the week. They are scouring the school this weekend because they’ve had so many cases already.

Makes me a bit angry that:
a) the school didn’t inform parents that the flu was running rampant (or shut it down)
b) The doc didn’t tell me that it was the flu until we went back a second time. They just assumed it was strep only. I kept them home until they were 24 hrs fever-free, but who knows?
