Unhinged

Instagram provides a beautiful venue for me to share quick tips but this one was in demand from the previous days’ posts. So here it is, the “take the door off the hinges” tip.

No photo description available.

Sometimes decluttering and organizing a home means moving furniture out of the home or into another room. And sometimes said furniture was assembled in the room and can’t leave without being taken apart. Or can it? One simple trick is to take the door off of the hinges. Not by unscrewing at least 9 screws from the hinge on the door or frame but by taking the pin out. Simply pop a nail into the bottom, hammering it in to release the pin (see photo). This is doable with just one person but better if there are two people: one for releasing the pins, one for holding/catching the door when all the pins are released.
