Look: Spring Cleaning In Full Effect

Look: Spring Cleaning In Full Effect

That's our living room the night before Saturday morning this weekend. We emptied every box in our walk-in closet, followed our own advice to slim down our life, and put our apartment on a diet like Laure did just a short while ago...

The impetus for the whole shebang was to make some extra room in the closet where our deepest and darkest secrets are kept (aka our mess), while also making a little extra money. We co-hosted a yard sale with our neighbor Sara (whose apartment was shown here), and ended up selling a 100+ CDs, old appliances, books/magazines, clothes and most notably, a cockroach hand puppet (a birthday gift). At the end of the day, we made $200 and regained a whole lot of room in our closet (while also meeting a lot of amusing characters throughout the morning). Of course, we nearly blew all $200 away afterward celebrating over the weekend, but it was spent without any guilt after all the hard work and resolve that went into cleaning out things we really didn't need any more. With LA weather starting to perk up, we highly recommend you do the same and give your closet a storage colonic!
