The Secrets in my Closet...

We all have secrets in our closets...but I actually do have a secret in my closets...they are all a unorganized mess! Well, to some of you who have been over here, this is no secret. I'm the kind of cleaner who in a hurry (which I am most of the time) just stuffs stuff in the closet so it looks nice when people walk in. Then, just close. the. door. And poof! My job is done!

But, it's been driving me crazy lately, so I decided to do something about it, slowly but surly, it will get done. I decided that every day I don't work, I will take on a secret, and expose it! So, here is the first one, though I have to admit, I'm feeling a little inspired by giving so much food away that I'm ready to take on the coat closet (a mess!) and give away to an awesome organization, Northwest Children's Outreach. I have a thing for jackets with myself and my kids, so this will be hard, but with this cold weather, it's really reminded me of how there are so many children out there without something to keep them warm. So check back soon!

This clip really hits me hard, especially since these are the kids I want to help and open my home to. My friend Beka helps work with this organization, and my parents volunteer every month to work with them.
