Tackle it Tuesday — Tackling the Hall Closet

Tackle it Tuesday

There were just TOO many shoes…

Things had gotten seriously out of control in our hall closet. And I mean seriously.

And this is the view of the top shelves:

Yes — that is some serious shoe hoarding going on. Well, it isn’t so much “hoarding” as just not taking time to go through and get rid of the shoes the kids have outgrown and the shoes I don’t wear.

So, it was time to organize that closet! It was time to TACKLE!

Olivia and I pulled out all the shoes and began to go sort what was to be donated, what was to be tossed, and what would be stored in the garage and what was going back in the hall closet.

Because little princesses grow out of their glass slippers…

We gave away a ton, tossed some, stored away a bit, and returned our most frequently used footwear to the closet.

What do you think?

Now — I wonder how long it will last.

    Great tackle! I don’t have a hall closet in my house. Does everyone chuck off their shoes when entering? We always seem to grow a pile of shoes in the living room. LOL Happy Tuesday! :)

    I love donating items I do not use in my home. Although it takes time it helps to stay decluttered and I always think that maybe someone out there really needed t his!

    It is so satisfying to purge and organize! I’ve spent the last 3 weeks doing this pretty much full time prepping our house for sale. I like to give my shoes to Soles4souls – a charity organization that gives shoes to those in need.
