There is no better time to clean out the front hall closet than over the summer. Fall tends to be a busy time of year with the kids going back to school. Before you find yourself with shoes all over the floor, backpacks shoved in and no place to hang those coats, why not get that closet organized before the chaos of another school year starts.
The first thing you will need to do is empty out the closet. Once the closet is emptied out, you can scrub down the walls or even apply some paint to freshen things up. If you do decide to paint, you can make the closet really stand out by painting the back wall a different color such as green or blue.
Assess the items that were taken out of the closet. Get rid of coats and boots that no longer fit. Throw out umbrellas, hats and mittens or any other accessory that might be torn, damaged or stained.
Make a list of the items you want to store in the closet. Consider using the list below to help you organize how to put things back.
Take a picture once everything is organized. If the closet begins to look messy, you can look at the picture and see where everything should be placed.
