Decluttering Task #33

Broom Cupboard

Organising your broom cupboard can feel a tad overwhelming, but having your vacuum cleaner, brooms, mops and other pieces of cleaning equipment on hand for easy access really does help take the stress out of cleaning.

There are so many inspirational storage solutions for broom cupboards kicking around the internet, but first things first, you need to declutter your current contents. Let’s be honest, our cleaning closest can very quickly become a dumping ground for items that we’re not even using anymore! So let’s get started with this week’s declutter task, and then we can talk about how to make it look as pretty as a picture (just like these fab broom cupboards below!).

TODAY’S TASK: PURGE AS MANY ITEMS FROM YOUR BROOM CUPBOARD AS YOU CAN

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

  • Look at your broom cupboard and see what storage solutions aren’t working.
  • Remove everything from the cupboard, grouping like items together.
  • Determine what items you haven’t used in over 12 months and consider purging them.
  • Consider purging duplicate items (I mean how many mops does one household need?).
  • Examine what smaller products can be stored elsewhere. Broom cupboards are often pokey at the best of time, so unless you have a large cupboard or internal shelves, you may want to store your smaller items like cleaning sprays and sponges elsewhere.
  • 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.

TIP: Wall clips are a great way to order and declutter your mops and brooms.

I would look for an outdoor storage cupboard that is made of that heavy duty plastic type material that wouldn’t be damaged by being exposed to the weather. Bunnings might have a solution for you, or I found this product after a quick google – https://www.kogan.com/au/buy/certa-outdoor-storage-cupboard/
