So, it’s the end of the school year and my homeschool closet was a bit of a wreck. The kids often get into it even though they shouldn’t and stuff was just in disarray. I wasn’t even sure what exactly was in there.
Now, I have a pretty large closet. There’s a big area on the bottom of the closet, and a shelf that is higher up. I knew I would only have about 20 minutes to declutter, so I chose to focus on the area in the bottom part of the closet only.
I had my kids asleep, I had the timer going, and I pulled everything out of that space.
Some things did not belong in the closet, so they got set aside. There was a lot of trash in the closet, so I put it in a trash bag that was with me in the area.
Once I rehomed the misplaced items, I began putting the other things neatly back in the closet.
It doesn’t look like a huge transformation, and it’s not “Pinterest” worthy (this is real life, folks), but now I know exactly what is in that space and where it is.
Mini decluttering session will help transform your home even if you don’t have a lot of time to devote to cleaning and decluttering. Remember, decluttering is a process. Once you get in the habit of tackling trouble spots, you will spend less and less time each time you go to organize that area. Just take a small chunk of your day to get a spot in order, and you can make a big difference in your home!
