I said I'd update with pics and here they are!
This is a shelf in our hallway that started out with homeschool/preschool supplies and ended up just being a dumping spot for a little bit of everything. I spent only about an hour this morning just clearing the junk and items that didn't belong and this is how it looks now.
Not great, I know. Still looks cluttered but my goal at the moment is just to clear the unwanted and misplaced items. After that, I'll go back through and actually organize. I'm still really pleased with the work I did. There are other spots I'll be working on and posting about in the future.
