I got stuff done!!

Seeing that I did not work today (or the rest of the week, for that matter) I was able to get some organizing done!

The first thing I tackled was the hall closet. While we were moving in, I just throw a bunch of stuff in it, and never organized it. Well today was the day!!!Here is the before picture.
And here is the after. I ended up throwing a way a ton of stuff. Mostly expired medication.
I also made labels on the computer so everything has a spot. I'm very happy how it turned out!
Riding on my success of the hall closet I moved on to my sock and undies drawer. I'm sure if it's appropriate to post pictures of my undies, but here it goes. Here is the before picture
The problem that I ran into while doing this, was finding many, many socks without mates. I have a large fondness of fun socks. However, it becomes a problem when the drier eats one of the pair! Here is a picture of my socks without mates.
I did some laundry and was able to find matches for most of them. There are still a few without mates. And here is the after picture. I'm happy how this turned out also!
Riding on the success of both the hall closet, and the sock drawer, I moved onto our pantry. We have a free standing pantry that we keep in the living room. I think everyone should keep their food in the living room. hahaha So here is the before picture

And the after. I'm not sure if I like this one as much. I have a feeling that I will be moving stuff around. I also made labels for the pantry, but they are not sticking very well, and they are hard to read.
I hope the rest of the week I can stay this productive!

I recommend tieing all your unmatched socks together, making one big pull toy for Frankie. That's what I did for Major, 10 years ago, and he still plays with it!
