Get Out of Our Coat Closet!

A couple of weeks ago, we asked you (and reminded you) to declutter your house in 30 days.  Join us in the “Get Out of Our House!” challenge: clean up and clear out 30 spaces of the house in 30 days.  We are going to literally go through 30 parts of our house – closets, drawers, rooms, etc. – and see what we can donate, trash, repurpose, and/or reorganize.  No space is too small (or too big) to clean up.

We started off the challenge in full force: the entry way coat closet.

BEFORE:

AFTER:

Our stats:

  • Donated: 23 (9 pairs of shoes, 5 coats, 4 scarves, 2 pairs of gloves, 2 dog shirts, 1 dog collar)
  • Disposed: 1 (a pair of shoes)
  • Repurposed (hopefully): 1 (a woven basket that used to hold Gigi’s clothes, clean-up bags, etc.)
  • Stored: 7 (2 pair of shoes, 4 coats, 1 baby bjorn)

While we were in there, we invested in a few matching woven baskets to keep the winter hats, scarves, and gloves organized.  One for each member of the family.  Our favorite part is that we can now find our shoes, which used to be piled up on the floor.

How did you kick off the challenge?
