After a little break after the weekend I am back in action! This time I wanted to tackle the hall closet. We don’t have a lot of spare linens or anything, so this is a big mix of cleaning supplies, towels and random household things that haven’t found room anywhere else.
So my goals here were:
– make some space for extra toiletries and first aid stuff
-organize cleaning supplies
-take out any extra garbage or unneeded things and put away things that don’t need to be there
-make some space for the breastpump and anything else that had been shoved unceremoniously
So here is the before picture:
This one was pretty easy to get through as well.
I took the diaper box at the bottom (full if random things for this next baby) and brought it to my own closet where the other box of baby clothes is and left them together, to be gone through more thoroughly when we’ve gathered more baby supplies.
I went through the top shelf and carefully folded the table cloth and a couple extra pillowcases and took out an old, cheap humidifier that I am quite sure is full of mildew inside. That’s waiting to either be cleaned or tossed now.
I went through the cleaning supplies, tossed and recycled empty containers and dried out old wipes, and arranged everything left in a way that made more sense.
This left more space on that same shelf for the first aid and body care stuff.
I arranged the top and bottom shelves so there is some empty space as well as room for a few little boxes and the cleaning bucket and such.
And made everything else fit nicely!
That’s about it. Most of what came out of here was just garbage and it is so much easier to get to everything now. I think I actually added in more than I took out, but it looks emptier now.
Here is the after shot:
And a closer look:
Next I think I’ll work on the bathrooms before moving on to the fuller, busier rooms!
