Days 8 and 9 of the 30 Day Challenge to Declutter are the Mudroom/entry hall and coat closet respectively. Last week I realized that adjacent areas to newly clean spaces look atrocious and the comparison makes it difficult to pat one’s self on the back for all the good work.
The garbage, recycling, and old microwave how now been put in their respective places.
The mudroom itself stays fairly neat so all that it needed was a quick vacuum.
The closet is a different story. This week’s realization is that I keep things in the totally wrong place. Why must I keep a giant roll of bubble wrap in the mudroom closet and why isn’t all my wrapping gear together?
Our mudroom closet is essentially a coat and shoe closet with the purpose of keeping the mudroom itself from becoming cluttered with junk.
After removing incongruous items and finding a suitable place for them I designated a shelf for me, a shelf for Charlie and a shelf for shoes.
The top shelf has a basket for hats, scarves, and gloves.
Now if I could only finish the hall wall gallery. It’s coming.
Do you store items in a logical place? Or stash them then can’t find them?
