Behold...The Closet



It has been around 9 months since we moved to our "special place" in the country and I have just now tackled our closet. I think it's because you can just shut the door and pretend it is not there (unlike much of the house). However, the closet had turned into "baggage"...stuff that just wears you down when you look at it! So one day I just jumped in with both feet and didn't look back...



Through this challenge I disposed of (in various ways) items that I had been hanging on to for really no reason at all. As I moved them out of the closet I rewarded myself with new skirt hangers (which I now feel like I could not live without) AND...



Wood hangers (LOVE THEM)! They are worth every penny! Now I want to hang my clothes up because they look so good on the hnager. I also decided to hang up most everything...including tee-shirts and PJs. I just liked the idea-it really works for me. Less folding and I feel special even in a tee shirt!



All sweat shirts and sweaters have a home...And I know what is where! I have really liked these clear storage containers/bags. I went from several huge plastic tubs to these two see-through wonderful things!



Finally, I decided to store away all my spring and summer shoes in the back so they were totally out of the way.



And I have my winter shoes on the door! So easy!



Someone asked me to show my pantry door again...SO, here is my secret door with all of the loose goodies that can invade a pantry.



It's just an over the door shoe hanger. I have used it since we moved and I could not do without it!

What organizing have you done?...Where is your "baggage" spot?

Girl, this closet is right up my ally! I feel like I'm in The Container Store (which is one of my favorite places!) I love to be organized! It looks great- I hope it stays looking this way :)

Oh, I love this! You did a great job!!

I just reorganized the book closet. My kids books end up in piles on the floor of the closet, so it was time for a re-haul.

I love Shelby laying behind your pantry door! LOL! What a good dog! We miss her....BTW, her food is here. I guess you bought new food. :) We will keep it for next time.

Of course, all your organizing looks great! I love your closet. Mine is next. :)

I think you need some more black shoes. You are quite the organizer. I foresee your own HGTV show! Seriously, it does feel good to accomplish something like that. I just did my own closet too! Not as cool as yours but I still have a few more things to do!

I love to organize my closet. I got all plastic hangers and they match but your wooden hangers are much better looking. I think I need to get some! Thanks for commenting on my blog. I recognize some of your blogging buddies, so I feel at home here! I'll be back!

Oooohhh... Ahhhh....
Really love it! I agree about hanging everything. Since we moved into our new house I started hanging my P.J.s too and it makes me feel nice and pretty going to bed (even with hair in a bun and no makeup!)
