Hall closet before:
Sorry the picture is so dark. This closet is in a really weird spot where there’s not much light and I can’t stand far enough back (there’s a wall in the way) to take a picture at a normal angle).
You can see the top of a package of toilet paper sitting on the floor. It was originally precariously stacked on top of the bags and fell right out when I opened the door!
See all those plastic bags? They are full of empty toilet paper rolls. I started collecting them when my nephew needed them for school. The problem? I never stopped! I have a few friends that can use them for craft projects, but it had been a while since I’d given any away. I found over 190 in my closet!! Fortunately, I found a few friends willing to take them all off my hands immediately. Phew!
I also found a small dirt devil vacuum cleaner in the closet! I’m sure it was my husbands before we were married, but how did I not know about it? Or did I just forget about it? I’m glad to know we have it. There have been times that I’ve wished I had a hand-held vacuum.
There was a box with some small picture frames that we had used as centerpieces at our wedding reception. I put them in a Ziploc bag instead and they take up MUCH less room now.
I also removed the unused hangers and put them in our clothes closet.
I’ve been working on my counters for some time now. A while back I managed to find space in a cupboard for my Kitchen Aid mixer and our blender. This has made the counters much more clear. But, we always have a bunch of bags of fruit laying in one corner of the counter.
I decided to take them out of the bags and put them in a bowl. I am so happy with the results!
I’m working on organizing my clothes closet, but haven’t finished yet. Maybe that’s what I’ll tackle next week.
