Closet Makeover

I dedicated a big chunk of time this weekend to cleaning out and organizing my closet.

It was pretty messy in there.  (Understatement.)  I really needed to weed through my clothes and get rid of things I don't wear anymore.  I know there are people out there with much bigger and much smaller closets than this.  It's an average sized closet...I'm not complaining!  But the space felt way too small because it was jam-packed with stuff.  A first world problem, I know.  Sigh.




My closet was such a mess, that the chaos actually spilled out into the bedroom onto the quilt rack.  And you thought quilt racks were just for hanging quilts!

Well, 5 huge goodwill bags and 6 hours later...


Looking good, shelves!

Bags hanging in an orderly fashion.

I didn't have to spend much money to redo my closet.  All I purchased was a 4 drawer plastic chest and 8 hangers with those clippy things on them for pants and skirts.

I did, however, have to spend a lot of hours of woman-power...I am exhausted!

But, the result is well worth the effort.  Now I look forward to getting dressed and grabbing a bag instead of dreading the abyss.

Nice! Feels great to get that one done, I bet...and to walk into a closet that organized now!
