Getting Organized - Day Eight!

The Coat Closet!

I know I skipped a few days.  The projects I missed were my dresser (already done) and my pantry.  My pantry is a lengthy project and I just didn't have time for it this weekend.  

I had a good excuse, Dan and I were in charge of hosting a Pinewood Derby for 16 darling little Cub Scouts!
 Ready to race!
 Look at that cute Cub Master!  
Dan is so great at this and we have fun working in Cub Scouts together.  If you haven't been reading  my blog very long, I am the Cub Committee Chair right now.  It's a pretty busy calling and a lot of work but again, these boys make it worth it!
 I've been doing this calling for my church for the past 1.5 years and finally, son is now old enough to be in Scouts and he got his Bobcat award on Saturday!  
I was one happy and proud mom!
This was my coat closet tonight....ugh.
 Double ugh.
 Oh look - here's my winter coat from the shoulder pads date me?  Can you tell I went to school in Southeastern Idaho where -20 below is not uncommon?  Brrrrr.
 Sexy stirrup ski pants from the same era.  I think both these items are great additions to the garage sale pile!
 A bit of cleaning and straightening out and I was set.
 Ahhhh...I won't be afraid of games falling on my head now!
I even got all the flashcards back into their homes!  Yay me!  I'm going to try and be back on track now for the rest of the week!

Super job! My son loves those derby races but he isn't in Cub Scouts...we do it at our church too! I am glad to see you could part with a few things too! Very funny!

Just when I thought I'd make it through the day without seeing stirrup pants. :) Thanks for sharing, it looks great!
