AT January Cure #15: Jump In

Even a Little Closet Clearing Goes a Long Way

Similar to the Pantry Purge or Drawer Cleanout, this is about improving ONE specific, contained area of your home. It can be a linen closet, a coat closet, your main wardrobe closet – whatever appeals to you. If you have just a little time to spend, go for the one that feels most do-able and just give it a quick polish. If you are raring to go, tackle the biggest monster. Whatever you choose, keep it to one closet only – you have the rest of the year to hit up more.

The point is: JUST JUMP IN and don’t worry about how far you’ll get or whether it will be “finished” today. Go in armed with an outbox, a trash bag and a vacuum and do your best. Even 15 minutes spent on straightening, decluttering and dust-bunny hunting will make a noticeable dent!

I originally wanted to clean out the closet in our bonus room that will eventually be a book nook, but this week has been crazy because of Two-Tone Tattoo Parlor (now open!) and I fell behind. So I cheated and used my closet, since I was going to work on it this weekend, anyway. :) I’ve waited far, far too long to finish it. When did I start this?? October 27. Well that’s embarrassing. No matter! I’m not going to post pictures here, because I want those to go in my “Surprise! Closet Renovation” series. For whatever reason. I don’t know…don’t question me. I really didn’t have much to do, just get the drop cloth floor in and finally hang all my clothes back up. So just hop on over to the grand reveal post and revel in the mediocre glory.

Note: I wrote this post on January 24, but didn’t get around to finishing my closet until February 2. WHAT CAN YA DO?
