Spring Cleaning

What is it about a mild day in March that ignites a cleaning frenzy in a woman's heart? Perhaps it's the fact that we're tired of our winter clothes and are antsy to find something springy to wear. Or maybe it's the feeling of accomplishment that comes when you plop down on the couch and know your cabinets are clean and organized.

In my case, it's the looming clothing giveaway at church. This is a great time to clean out the closets and find clothes that are seasonally appropriate that someone else can use. Then I can assess what is needed and the hunt begins. In other words, the cleaning precedes the shopping. Motivation and end game.

So, I just wanted to throw up a picture of what I did on Monday and encourage you all to think about doing the same. The clothing giveaway is in April, but it's never too late to start that spring cleaning. Start in your closet, move to your husband's and then tackle the children's. It's a great way to be the hands of Christ to the needy and remember, with a little extra space, a trip to the mall is right around the corner.

Okay, you got me - I staged the picture. I really don't clean in high heels, but they looked so good with the dress...

See you in the morning...


  1. Hee hee!!! Giggled out loud when I saw the picture!

  2. I did too Beth. Are we supposed to think that is you, Kristen? It does kind of look a little like your kitchen... =)

  3. ...and this post actually inspired me to get out the vacuum, so thanks!

  4. Hey Beth...did you notice...the bent knee? (Sorry, couldn't resist Kristen...)

  5. I've got a new favorite picture of you, Kristen. Now instead of asking you to "make that face", we can say, "take that pose".

    Have fun and stay busy - Luke 19:13

  6. So, this was what my day was suppossed to be spent doing...thanks to some cheerful encouraging from my 10 year old boy with far to much clothing.
    I did love the the picture though. Good way to start the week. See you in the morning...

  7. Are you kidding me? Months of deep posting and this blog is the one that gets the responses???
