Tips: Remove all items from closet. Separate items into piles to keep, throw away or donate. Vacuum out closet and shelves. Return items to closet. If you don't have time for a full cleanout, just quickly remove items to be thrown out or donated and then tidy up the closet.
Personal Notes: The final closet in my house to be cleaned out was in the office/guest room. As you can see from the picture below, it contained everything from scrapbooking and card-making supplies to air mattresses and everything in between.
I've been dreading this project and put it off for months but with the mother-in-law visit pending, I knew it was time to tackle this project! It took a couple of hours, but the resulting outcome made it time well-spent. See for yourself!
