Back to Reality, Mudroom Clean Up and More Bags

After relaxing with my parents and then my friends for seven days in sunny Florida, let me tell you, it’s tough getting back. But, reality hit me hard with cold winds, snow flurries, and 10 loads of laundry waiting for me! However, I began tackling it with a vengeance yesterday.
Remember (if you can), I’m doing the 40 bags in 40 days challenge. I had to double up because of my vacation, but that was no problem when I hit my oldest son’s room.
Then, I moved onto our mudroom, which by the way, is still in need of a major overhaul (beadboard coming off the walls; broken hinges, etc). However, it went from this:
 Is there a reason why, umm, no one is using the pegs?? Seriously.
Game closet...a little unorganized and way too many games we don't play anymore. Game closet floor..just throw it in there seems to be the motto here! 

Now, after three bags of giveaways...organized.

40 bags in 40 days: Day 14 = 10 bags (Still have to play catch up)!

Oh my, what a nice mudroom you have! :) Really, I like it. All those pegboards are great. And the fact that you can now see the pretty hardwood floor, even better!

Welcome back to reality!
