Before and After ~ Top or Bottom

Mind outta the gutter people.  This is a G rated post.

I am spring cleaning in December.  It started at home.  One of Lulu’s Christmas gifts to me.  I had a “nest” in the corner of my bedroom room.  All that “stuff” bugged me but I also did nothing about it.  The “stuff” was not gross, food product or anything like that.  Basically I collect bags and interchange them regularly.  These totes from various trips – vacation and shopping were full of things I had forgotten about.  “Necessary” things …NOT!

We put the nest contents on top of my bed.  Then we proceed to organize all of it for what felt like hours.  Several trips were made to the shredder with receipts.  We found more pens and notepads than I could use in a lifetime.  My collection of tchotchke that I brought home from work when I moved downtown over two years ago was in there too. Lulu took over when I wavered.

Toss it mom!  Really, just toss it!

We ended with a place for everything and everything in its’ place.

Today at work I did the same with my drawers.  Spring cleaning in December – Happy Birthday and Merry Christmas to me!  This time I was solo but I channeled my inner Lulu and got it done.  I brought back some (not all) of the tchotchke.  I am brightening my space.  I know I can be a one bin person again if needed. Right now, I don’t need to be.

Look at this handiwork folks!

I can lock up my new laptop and peripherals versus carting them all over the place with me.  I’ve got a wounded wing ya know. But your questions … should you choose to participate in this guessing game are …

Is the picture a before and after? Or a top and bottom?

If Lulu was asking, before and after would be correct.  She de-clutters.  If Pony was asking, top and bottom would be correct.  In fact, when he was a kid, his only method of cleaning was to toss everything into his closet.

Could it be I took all my “stuff” from the top draw and threw it into the bottom?  No! Never! Well … Oh Sssshhhh!! I am not telling.

As always, more to come.
