Day 10 - Laundry Closet

OMG, what a mess!  I cannot even begin to describe how disgusting this little closet was.  I've been hoping this challenge would come up, and it feels GREAT to be done with it.  Our laundry closet is a "catch-all" for all kinds of stuff & there was NO organization going on in there.  Here's what it looked like "Before"...


See all those plastic bags? I boxed them up to be shipped to a lady who crochets them into reusable shopping bags.  See that box on the top right?  That was full of "junk drawer" stuff from our OLD house... we moved into this house a year and a half ago.  See the shelf full of cloth diapers?  I haven't used them in at least a year.  Time to sell them!  See the pile of mismatched socks on top of the dryer?  Most of the "mates" were in a pile in my bedroom from when I cleaned off my dresser.  LOL!  SO... after putting away all the various piles of stuff where they belonged (tool box, bedrooms, closets, GARBAGE, etc.) I dusted & cleaned off everything in there, labeled a few bins... stood back & smiled. :)  I have been throwing SO much stuff away... When this 21-day challenge is over, my garbage man might want to strangle me...

Here's "after"...


We keep our kids' art supplies in this closet too.  They're only allowed to color/paint under supervision, so that's what the big pad of paper & bin full of coloring books is all about... I'm sure you were dying to know.
