Cable clutter!!

Yay! I got the cable clutter half way done! In the living room. Baby steps people baby steps! So an online friend recommended these cable covers. Ahhh. I love them. I need a few more to Finnish the job but I'm working on that too. We removed any cords we weren't using. And covered some, and relocated a few more. The router found a new home. Now I just need to tackle the tangle of cords behind the tv. I've purchased some tacky hooks to hang them in behind our stereo cabinet . But for now at least I have a plan. I also finished a piece of art work ( do more of what I love). Goals for 2016. I removed a large photograph to hang the new piece. And yes I had to paint the wall first. Have you ever read if you give a mouse a cookie???? Same principle. I started just wanting to clear clutter and ended up painting a wall. And I learned, that you can just paint one wall at a time. I've also-discovered these tiny I guess you could say slim paint rollers. Very neat and not heavy at all. Wish I had known about these before I gave myself tennis elbow from painting a room in one day! That was a different room back in the fall. Here are some pictures of the changes .
The library is next....

So I am doing it! I did the bedroom closet today ( mine). Last summer I got rid of a ton of clothing. This is round 2 I did the reading on 33 pieces of clothing in a capsule. One for every 3 months 333! I think I've got it! This is a big deal. Mind you I live in Indiana we truly have 4 seasons. And yes sometimes in the same day! I also live on a farm with livestock, I garden, paint, and I also own a vintage shop. Sometimes I teach preschool. That's a lot of very different hats. Don't get me wrong I love all those hats. I am just trying not to have a full wardrobe for each one. No matter jeans I wear on the farm are not so great for a boutique ! So after doing some reading on the subject I put down my iPad and went to work. Very quickly I made 2 piles as I pulled out each piece of clothing I didn't pull out what I wanted to keep. One pile for maybe and 1 pile get rid of. I packed up the maybe to the basement in Rubbermaid 1 large bin. Then the rest to go! I got a little rolling cart for my folded jeans. To tuck into my closet. I hung up all scarves/ belts on door. Some dresses I put in my husbands closet. To long for mine. My large dresser houses my socks, and under clothes, pjs, leggings , tshirts shorts ect. It's nearly empty . I can clearly see everything in it. I still have outer ware to deal with a little more. I took a lot to good will before Christmas . Laundry should be easier now too. Easy to put away my least favorite part. I did get rid of some shoes too. I put the Rubbermaid so I can easily get to it if I need to. Well time to go feed the horses! That's my progress report for now!
