Organizing Life: Your closet.

July 31, 2012

This week, I organized my closet which was in desperate need of a pick-me-up. 

It was good timing as summer is drawing to a close (but the hot weather is not) and I have started a new job.

While I like to have an organized closet, I also have to be realistic in order to keep it up week after week, laundry load after laundry load. I don't organize by color because I know I won't keep up with it. Instead, I organize by dresses, short sleeves, long sleeves.

At first, it was a mess. Pants shoved on the shelves because I figured that was the best place for them and bags piled on the floor because I didn't know where else to put them.

I rearranged.


I put the pants over to the side of the closet and used baskets to hold small items up top.

I organized the pants by jeans and dress pants, and then gave my shoes a proper place.

I made room on the floor by deciding which bags I really needed and moved the ones I kept up to the very top of the closet since I don't get to them often. I then bought a $5 basket for my flip flops and flats so they wouldn't take up room on the shelves.

For a place I literally go to each and every day, multiple times a day, it's nice to have it all freshened up.

How did you do? Link up your post below! (And celebrate the fact this was the last challenge.)

Let's organize life.

  1. Wow, great job! Our closet is not quite complete so my project is going to be a half-way organized closet. Also, stopping by to let you know I nominated you for the Versatile Blogger Award on my blog!
