2) Do you make those living with you strip down as soon as they come in the door so you don't have to see the hamper with any clothes in it.
The people that say yes to these questions are rare... and I'm not one of them.
Monday, I started with our closet.
This is how it looked before:
It was messy to look at, and that bothered me. As you can tell pants are falling off the shelves, my tennis skirts and shorts are a disaster... so I did a few things to improve it!
1) I took everything out of the closet... this lead me to taking everything out of our bedroom furniture in order to rearrange things... yes, this entire job took me about 4 hrs. And yes, I did Ryan's too. I know... I'm an awesome wife. ;)
Oh, and let me introduce you to our newest addition... Alex! I saw him at Ikea, and new it would be perfect for my closet needs! He fits in well, and they all get along. :)
2) I jotted a list of what needed to be separated (his/her list) and where I wanted them.
3) I placed only the hanging clothes and clothes that I wanted in the bedroom furniture first, and then headed to Home Goods to pick up some baskets for our shelf items.
The only problem was that I HATED the baskets once I go them in!
Man... and I spent like an hour picking those babies out! Anyway, I returned them the next day and found some different baskets, and may I also add... much cheaper one, at Tuesday Morning!
So here are some after shots:
Much better right?
The only two closet "to do's" left are to paint the mirror and mount, and put up shelving in the little cranny!
Next, I am going to tackle our filing system! I can't wait till it looks like this:
Yay for clean organized spaces!
