{Day 3} Entryway Closet - 31 Days of De-Hoarding

Welcome to Day 3 of 31 Days of De-Hoarding!

Today I will be working on my entryway closet.

It's looked worse.  It's also looked better.  It's the ultimate, just shove it in the closet, space.  Out of sight out of mind.

Speaking of out of sight.  See that box on the top shelf?

Oh, you thought we were done with kids shoes?!

Ha ha ha!!!

Told you I have hoardish tendencies.

What you see there are all the outgrown shoes of both my children that survived enough not to be thrown away immediately.

I saved them.  Because, we might have more kids.  And they will need shoes.  And here we are years later.  I think I will just have to buy new shoes if we have any more kids.  Because how many years do I keep adding to that box?  And someone else can be using them now rather than them sitting in my closet for 6-8 years.  Sad, I know.

I separated out all the boy shoes.

Can you tell the Peanut likes Spiderman?

And girl shoes.

The Princess thought it was Christmas and insisted on trying to shove her feet into all the too small shoes.

I found their very first shoes.  One of each actually.

Did I put the other in their baby boxes or did they both manage to lose one of their first shoes?  Guessing the second is more likely.

Boy shoes.


Girl shoes.


And at the bottom of the closet a stash of my husband's old shoes.


Right into the trash.

And some of my shoes.

Mostly de-hoarded.

Some to trash and some going to ThredUp.  One of the things that makes it easier to convince myself to get rid of stuff I don't need is that I can actually make a little money by getting rid of it!!  Winning.  Because now I can buy more stuff!!  Ok, stuff that I actually need.

A couple of the Princess's too small jackets.


And the closet is looking much better.

Yes, I kept a few of the shoes.  First shoes, baptism shoes etc.

I just kept filling the bags from yesterday because I don't want to be wasting bags.

Now stuffed full trash bag, finished filling the donate bag, added a second one and a donate box of girl shoes and jackets that managed not to get in the picture.  The recycle bag and shred mail box remained basically the same.

Day 3 success!
