Harry Potter and Monica Geller

Monica Geller

Remember in friends Monica had this closet and no one knew what was inside of it until one day Chandler and Joey busted into it? We all have a Monica Geller closet, I had one and when it gets mess I still have it but we call it the Harry Potter closet. Why Harry Potter closet, cause it is under the stair……..duh!

This was a holy mess, This was most of my paper was and I did a room and not a category but it worked for me this way.

I had a massive amount of things no human needs that much of. I had 84 pencils, I don’t even use pencils! There seemed to be a scissor issue, plus the three not pictured that I know about. I had cards and note card and invitations that I am said goodbye to as they spark joy no longer. I had a huge Sharpie issue, now I can’t find any. I didn’t even know what to do with the box of pom poms, they got donated. And I had a 4 drawer storage system full of paint, I am not a painter! I kept a small pile of cards and stationery. I did donate a lot of the craft supplies to the local elementary school.

It took two days to get this tackled but the result was so satisfying. I even found my note in the hiding spot for my wrapping paper. I got rid of 90% of my scrapbooking supplies. Just have a tote with all the paper in it.

Laundry Room

I wish laundry was the only thing in here, but it seems to be the catch-all. To be totally honest with you I probably need to go through this room and purge half of it. And as you can see by the 3rd photo, nothing screams safety like liquor and tools. I still have a small pantry area on the shelves but it needs to be cleaned up a bit.

I had a bucket full of plastic silverware, I can’t tell you what it was for but it got donated to the church. I have enough Christmas light bulbs to fix my lights and the entire street if need be. Mixers come to my house to die. I can kill a hand mixer like it is nobodies business. I kept the beaters as trophies of all those who died at my hand. I now have a big Kitchen-Aid mixer that is going in 8 years, like a boss. I also found water balloons from 2001! Why am I holding on to this?

Hall Closet

I have two and purging them was a blessing in disguise. I love how easy they stay clean, 5 minutes straighten up twice a month. I will post tomorrow about the Attic purge, it is a whole post in itself.
