It’s finished! My master closet is finished! There aren’t shoes all over the floor or clothes half hanging off of hangers. It looks colorful and bright not scattered and cluttered! Yippee!
I took some advice from some other bloggers and grouped my clothes by color. It makes them feel very bright and cheery, like staring at a rainbow.
The shoes are in boxes on the shelf and the purses are still hung. I have room for my sweaters after moving some other items to the armoire.
The other half even helped out by putting all his work clothes on one side of the closet and casual clothes on the other. Our closet is L-shaped so we each have a part of the L. It’s almost like having his and hers.
It’s not the closet of my dreams, but it’s the closet of “right now” and I’m so happy that it is large and neat and organized! Wow, it’s almost like I am getting it together!!
Like most women, I love shoes. (I’m giddy that it’s boot season!) But my shoes were kind of taking over the floor of my closet. Or they were thrown into large Rubbermaid bins.
It was bad. So while over at a neighbors house, I saw ingenious shoe storage! (Thank you Melora and Florence!) Small Rubbermaid bins. I immediately ran out and bought around 50. I got them all at Target for 87 cents a piece! And I grabbed my trusty label maker.
I got to work pairing my shoes and putting them in bins. Then I labeled each box with the type of shoe it held.
Then I started stacking them up. Out of season shoes went on the highest shelf.
Boots were lined up on the floor and flats were lined up on a low shelf.
I also saw some amazing purse storage on Pinterest. Are you ready for this? Shower curtain rings! Then your purses just hang right up.
I can actually see the floor of my closet!!!
Now I just need to get all of the clothing in order. That’s part 2.
