By now we should have everything on the floor sorted into bins and piles, right?
Time to make a new home for it all.
This part is going to hurt a little.
Rip the bandaid off fast.
Likely you have bins on the floor holding the same stuff that you have bins in the closet holding. We have to get them all combined and/or resorted now.
Take everything out of the closet.
Ouch. I know. It was getting clean in there! It's a big mess again.
Arrrrrrrrrrgh, I am completely overwhelmed again.
Why am I doing this?
This part of the sorting goes a lot faster. Crepe paper meet other crepe paper. Scraps meet other scraps. Once you are fairly confident that you have a bin that is complete put it back in the closet.
Look! We can see the floor again.
Keep going, putting like with like and putting it on the closet shelves. I am using adjustable shelving from the hardware store. It's a little more expensive to outfit the closet that way, but it is worth saving up for.
As you can see in the photos, I decided to add another shelf to my closet, going from 3 shelves to 4. It helped me accomodate more bins because the new sewing room has no shelving on the walls, which I had plenty of in the old sewing room. (A design choice on my part.)
There is still going to be some random stuff on the floor, we will deal with that at the end.
YOU CAN DO IT!
We are almost there. Once this part is done you are a mere hours from completion and it is going to feel wonderful to have it cleaned up and functional again.
I'll see you in two days to finish the job. :-)
