Your challenge this week is to take steps toward decluttering and organizing closet space for your kids’ clothes and possessions. Organizing kids’ closets so they can find the things they need quickly and easily is important both for children too young to do it themselves, and for your older kids that need to learn some organization skills of their own.
Of course, exactly what you need to do differs depending on how old your kids are. Plus, if you have several children like me (I have three) than you may not be able to get all these closets organized in one week. That’s no problem, just go at your own pace for the little ones’ closets and get your older children to pitch in for their own.
Are you new here? This challenge about organizing closet space for your kids is part of the 52 Week Home Organization Challenge. (Click the link to learn how to join us for free for future and past challenges if you aren’t already a regular reader).

This week’s challenge is to organize makeup and cosmetics, to get yourself looking good without having to search for everything you need constantly.
Once you’ve completed this challenge the goal is that your morning and/or evening beauty routine will be shortened because you’ll have less clutter to deal with, and can spend more time applying your makeup and other beauty products, rather than searching for them.
Some concepts covered in this challenge were already mentioned briefly in the bathroom organization challenge, but that was a while ago, and so you can probably hear a refresher anyway.
Plus, this will be geared specifically to your beauty products, and not the whole bathroom in general.

This week’s challenge is to organize shoes and boots for yourself and family members. In a way this week’s task isn’t really too hard, even if you tackle every pair of shoes in the house, because we’re just dealing with shoes.
But on the other hand, at least for some of us, we absolutely love shoes. And since I’ll be asking you to declutter the pairs down to what you can really realistically store in your house, in the space you’ve got, this can be difficult.
Don’t panic though if this is you. Just work through it one pair at a time, and you’ll most likely discover some shoes you’ve completely forgotten but that will quickly become new favorites, while gaining the resolve to reduce your collection.

In this week’s challenge we’re going to organize jewelry and other accessories so we can find what items we want or need each day, and properly care for the items we own.
This challenge continues the task we have been on for several weeks now, of dealing with our clothing items to get everything organized, so we pair down and use what we already own, and can put our fingers on any item we want to wear quickly when we get the urge.
This week we’ll organize the following types of items:
- Hair accessories
- Scarves, ties and belts
- Glasses and sunglasses
