That's what I am doing this week. My house is actually pretty well organized, but with selling a house you need to be even more organized.
I cleaned out my hall closet and tossed all the lotions, hair products, nail polish, and such that I haven't used in a couple of months (or longer). 
I filled a whole plastic tub with bath towels, wash cloths, and hand towels. For our wedding shower, we got an overabundance of  towels. I'm pretty sure we haven't used every single one of them in the 3 1/2 years we've been married. By packing away most of that, my hall closet as a lot of room and it now looks clutter free!

My closet is another story. Oy! I have so many pairs of shoes, purses, and let's not forget tops. Our closets in our house are not that big but I can sure cram a lot of clothing items and accessories in them.
I went through all my clothes and am giving items I haven't worn in awhile or have had since I was in high school to Goodwill.
I've tried to go through my shoes and purses but I just can't come to terms to part with them. I have the thought - "well, you never know when I will need that pair of shoes or that color of purse again". 
I'm not too upset with myself because I did pretty well with narrowing down all my clothes. 

My kitchen; I love my kitchen for being such a tiny house. Our kitchen is super nice with tons of storage. There isn't too much I need to get done in there. I just need to maintain everything in perfect order! This is one area my loving husband is going to have to work on. He is notorious for leaving all of his coffee mugs all over the house and in the sink. I sometimes think he forgets how to open the dishwasher!

I just hope all my organizing and being critical pays off!! At least while we are trying to sell, my house will be in tip, top shape!! (I hope)

  2. Good luck with the organizing and the selling of your house!

  3. Hi Megan,

    I could use a little of your magic in my house. If we were to sell, we might have to call someone in. It's small, with no attic or basement. I guess the other problem is that my children don't see what they do as "making a mess."
    Good luck with the house sale!

  4. We have been organizing or "nesting" for a bit. I feel like we are cleansing our house. It is good for the soul!
