Closet organizing

With all this snowy weather and the fact that tomorrow my parents are arriving from England, for a visit, I have been doing a lot of spring cleaning. I have tackled our bedroom closet, and wound up with a full green garbage bag of clothes to donate to the Goodwill! More room now for new things! I really tried to stick with that rule "that if you have not worn an item of clothing in the last year, it is time to give it up". I also got rid of stained, worn T shirts, and turned them into rags for cleaning. I organized my shoes onto an old bookshelf, and an old coat stand made a great organizer for scarves, hats and belts. Then I purchased those nice sturdy wooden hangers (a great price at Ikea) and rehung all of our clothes onto them, hanging like items together and in color groups. OK, that is either the designer in me or I am just plain anal! Jeans worked best folded up on the closet shelves, and made more room for other items that had to be hung. Now it is easy to see our clothes and even easier to put an outfit together in record time. Now if only the weather would co-operate I could wear some of those nice shoes! Pin It

Wow.. that closet looks cool......

Thanks Susan.. I am out of luck though, no places here where I can go for classes... I have been inquiring the past couple of months ever since I started obsessing about flame work beads :(

Good luck to u...

Doesn't it feel so good to clean out? Hope spring finds you soon so you can start wearing your cute sandals!

I love those big wooden hangers, too. Have all my jackets and sweaters on them. I'm bad about getting rid of all clothes, though...
