Day 2 – Front Closet

On day 2, you taking another step closer to getting your home organized.

Ready for your next task?

Let’s tackle the front closet today.

– Step one: Take everything out. The coats, the hangers, the boxes – everything.

– Step two: Sweep or vacuum the floor and wipe down the shelf.

Before you just stick everything back in and close the door – stop. Sort through what you own.

– Step three: Let’s do some de-cluttering!

Here’s some questions to ask…

Do you really need it?

Does it still fit?

Does it need repaired? (Set it aside. How about doing something about it THIS week!)

Do you actually use it? (Why keep it or even plan to get it repaired if you really don’t like to use it?)

Do you have two of very similar items? (You really only need one, right?)

Answer the above questions. Be honest. Be brutal.

This is the front closet, not a storage unit. Your guests will use this and it should look presentable.

– Grab some cute baskets.

Put nice, inexpensive baskets on the shelf for storing out of season gear, like hats, gloves and scarves.

– Invest in some nice, wooden hangers.

Make sure that you have a few extra wooden hangers for guests to use. They may seem like an expensive item but you can get nice wood hangers for less than $10 at any super store.

– Make a spot for everything.

Line up any shoes or boots neatly in the back. After your purging, cleaning and new storage solutions, this closet should look like a million bucks.

– Ready to Go the Extra Mile With an Extra 5 – 10 Minutes Effort?

If you have extra time today, take five to ten minutes and step outside. Give the front porch a quick sweep, wipe the cobwebs off the coach light and shake out the welcome mat.

Doesn’t it feel better to have such a wonderful welcoming entrance to your home?
