Hi everyone. Our bedroom closet was starting to become messy again. With Spring just around the corner (I hope somebody tells Mother Nature soon), I thought today would be a good day to do some reorganization.
Uugh – you see what I mean, right? The only thing I bought for this project was a shoe rack.
As usual, I started by taking everything out of the closet
Oh my … what have I started?
But at least I could see what needed to go back in, and what could be stored somewhere else, tossed or donated. Until I get my office back (another month or two and my kids and grandson will be getting their own place), the drawers and concertina file need to stay. As does my sewing machine and related things.
There were some things in this tub that I purged
and added Hubby’s work stuff to it. He’s at home with a work injury, so we need somewhere to store his things.
It went back to it’s original position.
I also stored some of his other work things on the top shelf, out of the way
I started with the hanging stuff first as it seemed the easiest :). There were several coats of Hubby’s that could be moved to the downstairs closet. Then I started with the things that he wears the least and put them in the back – suits, dress pants and the like
Next, the shirts – nothing to purge here
And then his pants.
Looking good. Finally, the ties and belts
On to the shelves. First of all, I sorted everything into like items – short-sleeved tee shirts, long sleeved tee shirts, hoodies – you get the picture. Then I put them back placing the things he wears the most on the most accessible shelf and so on.
Short-sleeved tee shirts
Underneath that, long-sleeved tee shirts and gym clothes
and hoodies on the bottom shelf.
There were a few odds and ends left, but I had run out of shelf space. A few months ago, Hubby had bought some plastic containers for his garage and I stole two of them for these things – tank-top undershirts, hats and odds and ends
Perfect! And Hubby’s side is done!
Not bad, right?
My side was easier as there was no shelving to deal with (I have some clothes in a chest of drawers). Under some supervision by Willow
I purged some stuff
I was going to donate these shoes as they are a tad too high, but I couldn’t bring myself to do it – sigh!
Once again, I put things back according to how much I wear them.
Yes, only two – the other summer dresses are still in storage.
My Red Hat Society clothes
Last to go in, the shoes neatly on my new shoe rack
It’s just as well I have photographic evidence because it might not stay like this for very long. Fingers crossed.
I hope this inspired you. Leave a comment and let me know how you got on!
