I don't love the title of this chart (it's not my graphic though, so I can't change it - sorry), but the chart itself is downright fabulous, especially to a habitual sorter, organizer, donater, and tosser like myself. For years I've followed the general flow of this chart (in my head) in an attempt to keep my closet from getting out of control, but it wasn't until last month - while I was organizing the daylights out of every drawer, cupboard, and closet in my house - that I started looking for an actual guide to move the process along.
I found quite a few closet clean-up charts during my search, but none were as comprehensive - but also as easy to follow - as the one below. And if we determine this chart to be the end-all when it comes to closet organization (which I, though without the authority to do so, have done), every single piece of clothing in closet and on my shelves belongs there. Tom's closet and drawers are another story...
I hope you find this chart helpful in your quest to get and stay organized!
Free to a Good Home
When February came to an end I took six boxes and bags of adult clothing, kitchenwares, and linens to Goodwill and two laundry baskets of kids clothing to Once Upon a Child. There are a few items, however, that my kids have outgrown or we have multiples of that I don't really want to donate to Goodwill or try to sell; I'd rather give them to someone I know who could put them to good use. If you're interested in any of these items - free to a good home - please let me know and I'll get them to you!
|Kids tool bench, along with multiple battery-operated toy tools. My kids |
loved this toy for many years, but seem to have recently outgrown it.
|This book has lots of great ideas for fun - and |
relatively easy to decorate - birthday cakes for kids.
|A brand-new black Nook cover. Please try to ignore |
the reflection of my foot in the clear plastic case.
|A once-used donut maker. This appliance works perfectly, but |
as it turns out, I'm the kind of girl who'd rather buy her donuts -
even if that means they're less healthy - than make them herself.
That's all on home organization, until next February, that is!
