Simplify

Yea. I can't even say that word with a straight face.

If I can't simplify, I can at least make it look a little more organized. My closet...


Before....


After....

I love bins. The two on the bottom (right and center) are all yarn. That's yarn from this year. Someday, I'll show you the bins and bags in my basement.
The ebay yarn store I have is a failed experiment (one of many) and I'll be shutting it down soon and just putting stuff on my blog from time to time. It seems like I'd sell just enough each month to cover the cost of having an ebay store. Anyway, all that yarn is in the basement, along with my already substantial stash. And I discovered hand-dyed sock yarn this year. sigh. I not only have S.A.B.L.E., I have S.A.B.A.L.E. (Stash Acquisition Beyond Anyone's Life Expectancy).
I am organizing a de-stashing (I know, I keep saying that, but it really is in the works).
Any good ideas on where to stash more yarn?
Just kidding, Ruth!

Don't you feel better???? I love organization. Not the process but the result.

One of the lys employees has an outbuilding for her SABLE. Was it the Harlot who sewed the bottom of unworn dresses and stashed yarn there? If you don't have dresses, you might buy one or two in XXL- cheaper than an outbuilding.

You could try my house. I have room for lots more insulation in the attic.

Good job on the reorg! I, too, have SABLE. Some of it is going out on the blogiversary contest. But it hasn't expanded itself into our walk up attic...
