Closet Organization Week

2 Aug

Last week I took yet another stab at organizing my closet. My closet is categorized as a walk-in closet but it really is a “step-in” closet. It usually is neat and tidy but how do I make it neat and tidy and having items at my finger tips?!

These are some of the before pics:

As a shoe-crazed individual I was finding it very difficult to fit all of my shoes in my closet, and as you can see from the image making it harder to get to my clothes at the back of my closet!!!

This is my leaning tower of pants and hoodies. I usually wear pants to work, so having them at the top of my closet makes it really troublesome. I have to get on my computer chair to grab a pair. Also it looks very unsightly.

One solution (still unsightly though) was to utilize every space possible in my closet, the bottom half of my closet door was no exception. I didn’t want to drill holes in the door, so I tied twine from the top hook to 2 pants hangers and hung my other bags at the half way point of the door. I bought cheapy hooks from the dollarstore and hooked them onto the pants hanger, also from the dollarstore.

After pics:

As I sigh in relief, I can finally get in my closet. I moved a shelf I found in the basement and placed my small bags in there, I bought a dollar store step stool to get to the top shelf and the white box underneath is where I store my leather bags without duster bags.

And the tower of shoes have moved to the top shelf, for easy access I cut the front of the shoe box so I can simply pull the shoes I wish to wear. I put my pants in the hanging compartment, and moved the tops that were originally there to a dresser drawer.

My bag door still looks the same, but I did manage to put some bags in the book shelf in my closet. The hoodies have been moved to the shoe rack under my clothes hanger.

I hope I was able to provide some tips, please feel to share any tips you may have, happy cleaning!
