Dawn, In Process, surrounded by sorted games.

After: the game closet, cleared, and easy for the girls to use!

The utility closet, before and after.

Before: A hall closet filled to the brim, and tough for the family to use.

Before: Shoes piled in the hall closet.

After: The closet now has room to breathe and systems to keep it tidy.

In previous cleaning frenzies I would purge the top layer of stuff pretty easily, and then kind of rearrange, and it would always backlog again. Maeve’s Method had me take everything out and allowed me to reimagine the space in a way that better suited my life as it is today. Committing to a clean slate is a very powerful feeling – in life and in Closets 101.
