20 Closets to Clean!

Tackle any of these and it will make you feel better and your house show better.

  1. Linens.  If they’re torn or shredding, time to trash.
  2. Shoes.  Let them go if they are too small, too painful or just too “what was I thinking?”
  3. Tupperware. They will never get organized if you keep throwing them in the cabinet.
  4. Games. As your children grow the games they play change.  This is a great one to pass on to someone else.
  5. Sweaters. Assess the ones you wear versus the ones that your never do.
  6. CD’s and DVD’s. I had a friend give a donation of all her VHS tapes to a non-profit organization. It was a benefit all around!
  7. Jewelry. Classic never goes out of style.  It’s the “today’s fashion” that you have to be honest about.
  8. Coats.  It’s worth going through it at least once a year.
  9. Handbags.  Not your style anymore?  Donate. Sell. Exchange. Give away…and the list goes on.
  10. Decorations. Some of us have a room full and some of us have a box full. Either way, know what you have so you can enjoy it when the holiday is here.
  11. Arts/Crafts.  If the glue is petrified and the glitter doesn’t move in the bottle, time for some clean up.
  12. Tools.  How many times have you asked “Where is the screwdriver?”.  Here’s your opportunity to always know where it is.
  13. Pool Equipment.  Strewn about your pool deck is the last place for these.
  14. Pantry. Many of us like to have a full pantry.  But let’s not go overboard to the point where food is expiring because we can’t get that far back in the closet.
  15. Computer Software. Keep software for a computer bundled together.
  16. Makeup.  It’s not only your mascara that needs to be changed out periodically.
  17. Toys. It doesn’t matter whose they are.
  18. Junk Drawer. We all have one.
  19. Mail/Paperwork. If it isn’t necessary, shred or trash.
  20. Your kid’s bedrooms.  What a great opportunity to show your child how to keep up with their own things.
