We all have that all-purpose closet that has become our dumping ground for everything from high school yearbooks to grandma’s tea set. We know those holiday decorations are in there somewhere, but there is too much clutter on top of them to get at them easily. (Or, very often, we can’t even remember what is in there!)
Although it may seem daunting, cleaning out a closet will save you time formerly spent looking for lost items and give you the sense of accomplishment that comes with conquering your clutter. So, now that you know you are going to tackle the closet, put aside a couple of hours, make a plan, and stick to it. Use the following steps to get that closet in shape.
Sort and Purge
First, pull everything out of the closet.
Separate and arrange contents by category and type. For example, balls, gloves, bats and bases.
