We have a tiny 1940's bungalow. Everything about it is tiny, especially the closets. In the living room, there is a tiny coat closet to which Mike added shelving. It has held a number of things but most recently it has been home to our games and puzzles. This is what it looked like before decluttering:
I am always so humiliated to show you my before photos but I think it is healthy humiliation. :) It is funny that I started this project after lunch and thought it would take an hour or so. By the time I found all of the puzzle and game pieces and sorted them all out, in addition to keeping the children from playing with them all, it took several hours. I gave away four large bags to Goodwill, thirty six games and puzzles in all. How in the world did we ever accumulate that many games? Some of them were never opened!
Here is the finished closet.
There is much empty space and I love it. We have so few empty spaces in this house. Since completing this project, I have enjoyed walking over to the closet and looking inside at the empty shelves. Yes, I know, I am easily entertained. :)
