Organizing My Storage Closet

Tomorrow is Anti-Procrastination Tuesday here at New Nostalgia! (I’ll be putting the MckLinky up in a couple hours.)  I’m excited to share with you something I have been procrastinating on way too long–cleaning out our storage closet!   It was so bad that I was getting scared to open the door.. 
Oh, boy.
I started by pulling everything out of the closet…that is when it got really scary!!
I had to remind myself that it gets bad before it gets better!

I sorted things into 3 bins–“give away” “put away” “donate”
I also made sure I had a trash bag handy.
I wanted to use the new open space for our rolling craft supply carts.
I used the other half of the closet for oversized toys that did not fit nicely
in my daughters room.
I used the back corner to store winter coats, bins of photos that need sorting, 
and a hanging divider for shoes that my girls need to grow into.
Look!  I can shut the door ALL THE WAY!  Yippee!!

Thank for the motivation!  Thanks for participating in “AP Tuesdays!”
I hope to “see” you there tomorrow!!

    I hope it stays this way!! The older my kids get, the easier it is to keep things organized so we will see!:)

    So much better. Doesn’t your mind feel a little more at ease. That is what happens to me after I get something like this done–mine was my gargage last week.
