Well…..this was our master bedroom closet. (Ahhh, the beauty of that tiny little word).
As you can see, it had become a wreck-a catch all area for donation items, papers, boxes I couldn’t remember what they held, random items for sale-as well as housing our regular clothing and shoes as a closet should.
And-though I don’t have a picture to show you-our bedroom was showing similar treatment with little random piles here and there.
I was really really tired of it.
So a couple days ago, I finally tackled what I knew had to be done. It took me one afternoon and all of $0 to accomplish, and thankfully all the kiddos napped well so I could.
Here is the “finished” product.
donation, sale, and project items moved to empty guest room (to hopefully be disposed of or used within the next few weeks)
box contents reviewed and sorted (some into donation pile, others for sale) two of those white boxes are empty now!!!!
clothes shifted for better placement within the closet
diaper bag hung for easier access
regularly accessed boxes moved for easier reaching
Better, right? Even the Bear noticed (yay!). Amazing what a little time, a chair, and my strange little minimalist mind can accomplish when our own space becomes a priority again. Our bedroom/bathroom/closet is ours (the Bear’s and mine), for conversation, connection, and rest. Our little haven shouldn’t be clutter with the leftovers our of days and weeks; it should feel welcoming.
I’ll keep working on that. Little baby steps. Simple steps.
