Closet Clearing Calamity

First, I started over an hour later than my scheduled time. I was distracted by family members, and when I looked at the other half of the closet filled with misc stuff (not just clothes), I gave up! One hour in and all I have is a bed full of clothes and stuff scattered around my room. This did not go as I anticipated. Send this will be much longer than 2 hours! How do I get through this–it’s just one closet!?
