Laura's recent spring cleaning post inspired me to take a look around my own home, mainly for things to get rid of. The first area I tackled was my closet. Its a tiny space that it chock full of tight storage. Double-decker hanging bars on both sides paired with two levels of shelves, a hat and belt rack, and hanging shoe rack offer alot of storage in a very small space. But even with all that storage, it felt like things were closing in on me every time I opened the door. Therefore, some serious de-cluttering ensued.
|Lots of tight storage. Everything has a place and must be in its place or chaos ensues.|
|Double-decker storage is a must in this tight space.|
|Work pants and boots....boots that I never really wear.|
|A basket holding a ton of scarves.....scarves I never really wear.|
|More bags and boxes of items I never really wear. Are you noticing a pattern here?|
|It took me about ten minutes to end up with this big pile of stuff I never really wear.|
|And lots of extra hangers, also taking up valuable space.|
|I ended up with a decent pile of clothes, shoes, hats and scarves ready to be donated.|
Its been about six weeks since I got rid of all those clothes and I gotta say, I don't miss them one bit. I also don't miss the chaos that once existed in my now slightly roomier closet!
