Tackle-It-Tuesday #2 — Making Progress

Way back in October, I planned to tackle my master closet. It’s been the bane of my existence, requiring stepping around and sometimes even over things just to get dressed in the morning. In case you don’t remember, this was the before.


Well, despite a ten day trip to Florida, the holidays, and the Plague pneumonia that’s been kicking my rear, I have been slowly chipping away at the pile. I don’t know if you’ve heard of the FlyLady but her theory is that any mountain, as Everest-like as it may be, can be conquered 15 minutes at a time. So even though I get tired easily, I can find 15 minutes. And I have definitely made progress.

Every bit of my clothing has been hung or folded. The baskets are empty!!!!

Look, you can see floor…

I have conquered the clothes! I filled a garbage bag with giveaway. Everything is put away or hung but I need to do more. I still have too much. I need to open my heart and let go of more. FlyLady calls it blessing others and I need to bless a little lot more. While I try to purge further, I have made a commitment. I will not buy any more hangers. If I want to add something to the closet, something needs to go.

Now on to the boxes of paper and junk and the shoes. Hopefully, that Tuesday will come sooner than three months. But whether it’s one week or one year, I will get there 15 minutes at a time.

Do you have a project you want to tackle? What is it?

A big thanks to 5 Minutes for Mom. They started the Tackle-It-Tuesday and while they don’t host a carnival weekly any more, it is still a source of inspiration for me.




  1. Wow! that is very inspiring! I think I will try it. Thanks for sharing :)

    • Thank you. It was a little hard to share the before but I’m hoping that it will help me stay on track and inspired. Appreciate the support!

  2. The office! My hubby uses it as a catch all room but I really want to get it to the point where I can be productive.

    • We have one of those, too! Actually that’s an upcoming Tackle-It Tuesday project. I am hoping that the Tackle-It posts will help me stay on track!

  3. Wow and wow! You’re doing great, Traci. FlyLady can be so helpful by reminding us to take it slowly because that’s the way we got into these messes.

    Hope you’re feeling better soon.
