Hallway Closet Cleanout

It really doesn't take that long to tackle certain projects in our homes.  Often we dread a task and then put it off.  I was doing this with our hallway closet.  When you move you just want everything unpacked and put away.  Sometimes the places that we decide to put things don't end up working well once we live in the house for a little while.  Our hallway closet was this way.  I decided to tackle it one Sunday evening and was happy to find that it only took me 20 minutes to complete.

I have been doing a better job of keeping "like" items together so that I know exactly what we have and what we don't.  In my closet, I grouped together "like" items and gave them all a home.  We purged a few items (outdated medications, a cold pack that we never use) and moved a few items to where they belonged in other parts of the house.

Organizing really takes a lot less time when you only own what you need and use.  I was so happy that there was very little to get rid of this time!  Striving for more simplicity in our lives has certainly taken a lot of the stress out of cleaning and organizing.
