Yeah, I know I said I was going to do these weekly and then didn’t. But it’s a fresh new year and hope springs eternal. I’m determined to thoroughly declutter and organize my house this year. I decided to start with the area that has been driving me crazy – my closet.
I have a walk-in closet which opens off our master bathroom. David has another closet so this one is just mine. However it’s also where I store our Christmas decorations, all of our suitcases, magazines I want to keep and, well, stuff. Because it’s not visible to anyone but David and me the incentive to keep it tidy isn’t as high as the public rooms of our house. It’s also poorly designed and since I don’t have a dresser all of my clothes are in there. Over the past year or two it’s become a bit of a dumping ground.
I took before pictures this morning and I’m going to set aside my embarrassment and post them here. They are already on Instagram so I might as well. 😉
Here goes (deep breath):
Okay, this one doesn’t look *too* bad. There is a deep shelf that wraps around the closet and that’s where I store my holiday decorations. I still have my Christmas decorations out and two boxes are sitting at the top of my stairs. But even when they are all put away I have room for them and they are organized.
