Have you joined us for the 31 Day Decluttering Challenge? We’re working just 10 minutes a day in one small area of our homes, so by the end of the challenge we will have made significant progress. (Scroll to the end of this post to grab a FREE 31 Day Decluttering Challenge Checklist!)
For the last week of the challenge I worked on my linen closet. Spending just 10 minutes a day and working on one shelf at a time, I:
- removed all items from the shelf
- refolded linens and sorted them into like groupings (towels together, etc.)
- removed non-essential items
The third shelf from the top needed the most work because the health and beauty products were out of control. (That’s what happens with three teenage daughters!) I threw away several expired products and re-organized everything which made a pretty dramatic difference, as you can see in the “after” photo on the right.
SIDE NOTE: You can see the packs of toilet paper that I have been purchasing from Amazon because it’s so much cheaper than my local stores. You can see the Best Amazon Deals on Household Items and the toilet paper deals I buy HERE.
As I was going through the closet I realized that we had EIGHT extra sets of sheets, some of which are for mattress sizes we don’t even own any more! So I’ll be donating the sheet sets in the photo above.
