It is Day 2 of our 30-day decluttering challenge – and today it’s all about the Front Closet!

Day 2- Front Closet

Hey! Welcome back. Returning for Day 2 is a big step. You are that much closer to getting your home organized.

Ready for your next task?

Let’s tackle the front closet today.

Take everything out. The coats, the hangers, the boxes – everything. Sweep or vacuum the floor and wipe down the shelf.

Before you just stick everything back in and close the door – stop. Sort through what you own. Do you need it? Does it still fit? Be brutal.

This is the front closet, not a storage unit. Your guests will use this and it should look presentable.

Put nice, inexpensive baskets on the shelf for storing out of season gear, like hats, gloves and scarves. Get some wooden hangers for the coats, making sure that you have plenty of extra ones for guests to use. They may seem like an expensive item but you can get nice wood hangers for less than $10 at any Super Store. Line up any shoes or boots neatly in the back. After your purging, cleaning and new storage solutions, this closet should look like a million bucks.

If you have extra time today, take five minutes and step outside. Give the front porch a quick sweep, wipe the cobwebs off the coach light and shake out the welcome mat.

Doesn’t it feel better to have such a welcoming entrance to your home?

See you tomorrow.

Cleaning and organization are only part of this deal. Decluttering is more for those of us who have experienced narcissistic relationships.
