This is not my house. I think the image is from TLC's Hoarding show.
Thank goodness, my house isn't even close to that mess. In actuality, my hall closet looked like this a little over a month ago.
Not too horrible but the contents of the top shelf came tumbling down every now and then.
It took me two days to tackle that mess - first the linens, then the bins of stuff. Finally, on May 3rd, that fateful day when my husband broke his ankle and our world changed at least temporarily, I finished the closet (before I got the dreaded phone call!).
This is what it looks like now. It's been a month. It's not perfect but at least we can find stuff. The wall of towels is gone! I also have enough room on the floor to store our board games (not photographed), which were previously on top of the shoe rack in my bedroom closet!
