    Default Closet Decluttering Challenge

    Alright, I want you to find you most cluttered closet and I want you to attack it full-force this week. I'll give you until Saturday night for this challenge.

    Be ruthless and get the junk out! Pictures are always great!

    I'm going to attack the closet in Patrick's room. It used to be the guest/storage room, but Matthew's arrival caused a change in plans. I SEVERELY need to go through there.

    Where will you attack???

    I will work on my master bedroom closet.

    I still have a lot of "regular" clothes in my closet, and I really need to pack those away and switch to all maternity stuff. I can't wear that stuff and it's just in the way. I have two Rubbermaid tubs that my maternity wardrobe was stored in-- I need to switch out the clothes and then declutter the rest of the closet.

    I would really love to do this, but I have started on the storage shed from you know where. For the next few days that is all I can possibly handle. I worked out there for about 3 hours today and I am so tired. You cannot imagine the mess I am dealing with. Good luck with your closets, ladies and I could use your prayers with my project. I'm not kidding. I need them.

    Booo - I did this one back in January when I got so fed up with my closet shelves that I was ready to blow it up. (Its the only closet in basement and its very large. (Houses: my clothes, bathroom stuff/linen closet stuff) If I knew how to post a pic I'd show y'all I like my new shelving.

    I read this earlier this week, and must have been guided to do the masterbedroom closet today-I had forgotten this post... SO SORRY Amy... I finally after 8 years got rid of the wire hangers that were there when we moved in!!!!! LOL.... Got DH to go through all the shirts he has not touched in at least a year and did some rearranging.. I still have all the shelf area to tackle, and will do that either Friday or Saturday. I have decided that I cannot keep everything forever-it is so unhealthy for me.

    Oh my big mess is my hall cabinet. Boy is it packed with old linens and things. As a matter of fact, if I pulled anything out to use it I would have to wash and line dry the items to get that "Smell" out of it. You know the smell, the one where something has been stored up for so long that it has that used, musty odor. Well this weekend, that is the major project at my house. Clean out that closet.

    Just did my own closet. Took all of one minute. Real easy. Pulled out stuff I'd forgotten I had and got rid of it.

    I got started today. I got all the hba all in one place (oh my goodness, I have a lot of shampoo, deodorant, razor blades, toothbrushes, & toothpaste ), got all the linens folded and put on the correct shelf. I still need to go through my shoes (all 5 pairs of them ) and hang up my clothes. The rest is dh's stuff...tools, old army stuff, etc.
