Behold my organized closet. Before you laugh and say, that's clean?!, let's not forget the before. First of all, I got rid of a TON of stuff. I try to go through my closet a couple of times a year and donate/give away anything I don't think I'll wear, but I'm really bad at parting with things I love. I got rid of so much this time, which, while it sucked in the process, I will say that getting ready in the morning and picking out what to wear in the last couple of days has taken far less time.
So on the right side... I'm not one to organize by sleeve length or color, so don't judge. I've always stored my purses and clutches on the top shelf. I kept them there, however, now all of the clutches and small bags are in the plastic drawer containers. To the right of those are my designer/nicer purses that I keep in the original dust bags.
The shoe solution is not long term. I suck at keeping my shoes organized and need to figure out a better rack system. -or something. The other half of my shoe collection lives in my half of the bedroom closet and in our coat closet.
The right side is mostly sweaters and dresses. On the bottom are a couple larger plastic drawers and a wicker hamper where I put my hand wash/dry clean only clothes. You can't see it too well, but on the top shelf are all of my jeans/cords. Up until this weekend, I hung all of my pants, but in an effort to not smush all of my clothes, I opted to go with folding them.
The rest of the room is much cleaner now too. I still have a couple of mail stacks/magazines to go through, but in the meantime, I'm pretty happy with the results. It's far from my dream closet, but for now, it will do. :)
I know what you're thinking. Wow Shiri. This blog content is so insanely interesting. I know. Pretty lame. Well if you're still reading my blog, (it may be more of a diary at this point,) there will be more updates soon. We finally bought the tile for our kitchen backsplash and will be putting that in soon, which will make our kitchen 100% complete. Plus, we're in the process of planning our backyard rehearsal dinner and I will try to share some of the details on here too.
