Spring Cleaning and the Tardis Closet

I really wanted to knit this weekend. Or can.

You know, do something.

But my apartment looks like something out of Hoarders. Note: we’re not hoarders.

My apartment always takes a hit this time of year because of the amount of time that I’m out of it. I don’t have a lot of time to actually get much done in the house. There are segments of the year where I’m going doing fun things but not March and April; those months I’m just burning the candle at both ends.

I’m also dealing with health problems. I don’t get sick very often but when I do it’s intense. This year it’s been to the magnitude of four straight months of one thing after another-it doesn’t inspire a lot of desire to clean.

So with Mid gone all weekend for a gaming convention I grit my teeth and started cleaning. I started with the kitchen closet, thinking that if I could clean it up I could store my canning supplies, ferments, and other small odd items and open space up in other areas for more storage.

Two hours and three bags of garbage later, I finally had a functional closet it again. What is this, the Tardis closet? How does this happen? I think my plastic shopping bags were breeding. I don’t even shop at a lot of places that give plastic bags.

I think maybe that’s the problem with my apartment as a whole right now. It’s spawning stuff faster than I can get rid of it.

Bloggers-I have started a new group board on Pinterest. Open to all DIY, craft, food, or other creative blogs, I would love to have you join. Joining instructions are posted on the board-join here.
