The weekend kinda whizzed by and I did not get to do half the things I was going to do.
But what I ended up spending just about the whole weekend on was reorganising my cupboards. I am a pack rat…
I really have the inability to throw things away but most especially clothes and more specifically clothes with sentimental value. So as a result my cupboards are packed to the hilt. Also in the early days of my wanderlust I bought a t-shirt in every town in every country I visited and the collection is extreme but ummmmm I seldom wear them.
My cupboard space is tiny it really was meant for a child and not a grownup which means that I end up hanging clothes all over the house and it drives my mom in sane. So in an effort to keep the peace I bought some of these awesome space saving bags…..
|You first pack the bag, then seal it, then you use your vacuum cleaner to suck the air out of the bag,|
then you store it
|The jumbo bag|
|The jumbo pile of jersey's and winter tops|
|Packed into the bag|
|Sealed and ready to be vacuumed|
|Sucking the air out|
|More air is out|
|All the air is out of the bag and now we seal it...ok mom did the sucking and sealing|
|Takes up about a quarter of the space the clothes did|
Day twelve: I am thankful for memories because they last long after the party has ended, the t-shirt has faded and the souvenirs have broken. In some ways my clothing cupboard is a trip down memory lane....here are some of my favorites.
