2017 – January, Week 1

Check out the full month here.

So for Week 1 all (ha! “all”) I had to do was totally clean out my closet (then clean it) and scrub the toilet in the master bathroom. Mr. T’s project was to fix the toilet. It had started leaking – again – where the water line connects to the tank. It actually started doing this not long after we moved in and he fixed it back then with some plumber’s tape. He was actually doing the same thing this time, but he’s so MANLY AND STRONG that he tightened it too much and broke the PVC connector and had to replace it. >.< Anyway, after he replaced it, it seems the leak is fixed – again – at least for now.

If you follow me on Instagram (you totally should), you’ve already seen these pictures. But here are the Before/After photos of the closet from Day 1 of “the emptying”:

2017 - January, Week 1 | The Wilson Buzz2017 - January, Week 1 | The Wilson Buzz I’m not entirely sure how many trips I took up the stairs with all my clothes. And for the record, this isn’t even all my clothes. These are just the ones in my closet. I’m sure there are plenty mixed in with Mr. T’s clothes in our disaster of a bedroom, and I just don’t want to deal with that right now. ALSO, since I knew I was going to be doing this, I’ve gotten a bit lazy about hanging up my clothes after washing them (which is part of the reason my “before” pictures are so horrific)…but that means all the clothes I wear pretty regularly were the first ones I carried upstairs. So they’re at the bottom of the pile. Finding clothes to wear to work was fun. >.<

I don’t have any pictures of the results from the cleaning and reorganization, though. Actually, I did take some, but then I planned on doing a couple more things so I decided to delete those pictures and take new ones…I did do the stuff I planned on doing, but I didn’t take more pictures! I’m not 100% sold on the new layout, anyway. We’ll just have to see how it works as I start bringing in clothes. I may have screwed myself out of a lot of hanging space with how I placed the furniture.

Oh, and I’m not going to show you a picture of our toilet. Even I have my limits with oversharing, okay? You may not believe it, but it’s true! Plus, if you saw it now, you’d go “it’s just a toilet, though” and I’d be like “but you should have seen it BEFORE!!” And now you’re probably imagining something way more horrific than it really was. Anyway, no pictures.

Outside of the main closet/master bath projects I had, I also have some daily and one-off tasks planned out in my daily planner. I think I did a pretty good job of maintaining that as well. Way to be responsible, Sarah! *pats self on back* I didn’t always get it done the day I scheduled, but I still got most everything done! Except the exercise. Screw exercise…

  1. You have one of the most beautiful, cheerful closets that I have ever seen. I remember when you painted it. So impressed!

    • Thank you!! I’m glad to finally be able to see the walls again! Hopefully I can do a better job of keeping it clean this time.

Tell me how you REALLY feel:
