When we sold our house, we had exactly twenty days (offer date to move date) to purge just enough to squeeze ourselves into the new apartment. Now, it’s time to tackle each space one at a time to evaluate what really belongs here and make room for new priorities. Case in point, we’ve recently decided to buy everything in bulk to
save the planet by reducing packaging let’s be honest: to save money.
The Costco life is tricky in a small home. Most people wait until they have a basement with a chest freezer and storage shelves. My strategy will be to use our two hallway closets:
These closets already work pretty hard for us.
The cleaning closet holds everything home-related such as cleaning supplies and out-of-rotation decor.
The linen closet – which I will tackle first – is for anything people-related…
A messy pile of linens:
Birthday and Christmas gifts:
Toiletries, medicine and our donation bin:
And wrapping paper in the door:
The gift shelf and wrapping paper are fine. But the rest of the closet needs to work a little harder so that we can store bulk purchases in there too. More on this soon, hopefully!
