Vanilla Bean + Sea Salt Rice Cereal Treats

Guys, I did something monumental yesterday.

Something that I’ve been avoiding for quite a while.

I cleaned my closet.

Well, technically, my husband and I cleaned the bottom area of our closet.

I consider this progress in the whole keeping an organized and tidy house thing, which would be much easier if I weren’t allergic to cleaning so lazy.

In the midst of decluttering and making piles to take to Savers, I came across some pictures from high school and college. Holy cannoli. Let’s just say that some of them were funny, some made me feel sentimental, and others just need to never again see the light of day.

What kinds of things have you found while cleaning your closet?
