November tiny projects challenge: Day 2

23 November 2020

Today, I spent 20 minutes on my main office-supply closet. My office is in a spare bedroom. I took the sliding doors off the closet and filled the closet with shelving to store office supplies. Since those supplies are so visible, I don’t let the closet contents get too crazy before decluttering an organizing.

I snapped an overall before shot so that you can see what I had to work with.

It was very easy to take a declutter a few things and tidy everything up. And you know what? It actually has a pretty big impact.

Here is the after shot. It reminds me a little of those “spot the differences” cartoons in Highlights magazine when I was a kid.

Just getting the stuff off the floor (most of it went to another room where it’s more appropriate) was really helpful. I also I moved to the donate pile a few things that I should have donated in the first place (rather than stashing the in the closet.) Then I tidied up and moved a few things around to more sensible locations within the closet. It’s so easy for a closet to become a dumping area, but a few minutes of tidying helps me treat it with more respect.

I have to admit, it put me in a brighter mood!
