Task 22 – Declutter 52 Things in 52 Weeks Challenge – Hall Cupboard

It’s week 22 of my Declutter 52 Things in 52 Weeks Challenge. If you haven’t signed up yet, join me today as I help you remove all those things in your home you no longer need or use.

Most homes have a spot where things are put that don’t really have anywhere else to go – and the hall cupboard can very often be this spot. It’s the out-of-sight-out-of-mind mentality which works for a while, until we need something and can’t for the life of us find it! We shut the door on shelves that are overflowing with items that are unordered, untidy, and increasingly hard to navigate through.

Luckily this can be very easily fixed with a good declutter, and a better storage system. This week’s declutter challenge will have your hall cupboard so organised that you’ll be wanting to keep those doors open for everyone to see. 

The Declutter 52 things in 52 Week Challenge is completely FREE!!  I publish new task on the blog each Wednesday.  Sign up to my daily emails so you don’t miss when the next tasks is live. Alternatively, visit the blog each Wednesday to see the latest task.

Decluttering Task #22

Hall Cupboard

If your hall cupboard is anything like mine, it will be home to all sorts of goodies – cards given to us, stationary, gift supplies, old photos, the kids school papers and their old drawings too!

All these items can live together in organised harmony though, it just takes a few key tips, and a little planning to do so – which is exactly what this week’s declutter post is all about! 


Note: My definition of purge – sell, donate, repurpose or throw away items as you see fit

  • Go through all items in your hall cupboard and purge any items you no longer need.
  • Look at your hall cupboard and see what storage solutions aren’t working.
  • Remove everything from the hall cupboard, grouping like items together.
  • Determine what items you haven’t used in over 12 months and consider purging them.
  • Add any new and/or your current storage products in your cupboard to help you keep it organised.
  • Place items you don’t use often towards the back or top.
