30 Minutes or Less – Rags . . . And Awards

Today’s 30 minute or less organizing task took me only about 5 minutes. I decided to attack my rag basket, which was really out-of-control. I’m a little embarrassed about this “before” picture, but here it is:

As always, I started by sorting through what I actually put into use.  There were rags that were so tattered they were useless, and others at the bottom that had never been used.  Both were disposed of. Then I started folding and placing them back in the basket. When I ran out of room in the basket, I was done and got rid of what was left.  Then I labeled it and placed it back on the shelf.


Much better!

I have also been nominated for two awards by two fantastic fellow bloggers.
