So, I’ve been decluttering my closet and some junk drawers this week, bagging up the excess to haul to the thriftstore. Let someone else enjoy what I’m not wearing anymore, share the blessings. Even though I had several bags worth removed from the closet, it is still plenty full. At least now I can see most everything and that’s good.Excess bags-o-junk going to the thriftstore. You’ll remember these scary photos of my closet from a week ago.Lettin’ it all hang out, the ugly and the messy, completely out of control from lack of attention. I’m now happy to report it looks a lot better now.After removing a bunch of clothes from both sides, it’s a lot easier to find things now. That cute little stool was a yardsale find that I’ve never taken time to paint. It helps me reach up high to get something down from the top shelves. You’ll see a compact dirty clothes hamper there to the right. I love having the hamper in the closet and this one takes up just a little room. And it was a yardsale find too. Sweaters on the top rack. Having that top rack up high helped to add more storage in this tall and skinny closet. On the right are purses up top and a big basket that holds all my flip-flops. Great way to get them off the floor and out of sight until I need them again this summer.A simple folding hanger helps corral the belts, purses and scarves, making them easily accessible. These cheapy drawers are great to have around too, these hold my undies and nightwear and I can grab them easily.I can’t brag enough on these shoe organizers. You can find these 25 pair cubbies at Target or Lowes, a good investment for keeping those shoes in some sort of order. I’ve now managed to get my shoes down to about 25 pair, with a few still in boxes.
That’s a major accomplishment for a shoe-aholic like me. 🙂
So, that’s what I’ve been up to this week. I won’t win any awards for the world’s most beautiful closet, but it sure feels better now.For your viewing pleasure, here’s an eye candy closet from the movie, Something’s Gotta Give. I loved everything about that house, didn’t you?
I’m joining Traci at Beneath my Heart for her organizing linky party. Hop on over there if you want to get even more organizing inspiration. I have a feeling you’ll see some pretty nifty containers and ideas to use for yourself.
How about you? Did you do any organizing this week? Feel free to share.
