Spring cleaning continues at my house. This weekend I finished my closet and my dresser (except the top drawer). I have one large bag of garbage and two bags to take to Goodwill. It really feels great to declutter.
If the top of my closet looks less organized, that is because instead of packing away bulky winter coats in totes, I decided to use the extra space in my closet to hang them for the summer.
While I think totes are great for storing clothes, I prefer to hang them out of reach. I don’t usually have a closet big enough to hang extra clothes, but in this house I do.
If you need basic organizing tips before you start your spring cleaning you’ll want to head over to Kristin’s site.
After a year of transition, Kristin is beginning Operation Organization 101. She offers a few basic organizing rules that are helpful in keeping the right mindset as one moves through their organization scheme.
Read her Operation Organization 101 tips on her blog, At a Glance.
