I’ve told you several times that my house is small. The closet I share with My Better Half is VERY small but it works for us. A small closet motivates me to purge more often and not hang on to clothes that may or may not ever fit me again (wink, wink)!
My closet was bursting at the seams (much like other people things in this house) and needed help. So needless to say, it was my organization project this week.
I started with the shelf that holds our under clothes. I bought these matching boxes a couple years ago and they work well to hold this kind of stuff. My BIL built this shelf for my birthday a couple of years ago…didn’t he do a great job!? I emptied everything out and started fresh…separating white and dark socks, undies, slips, tshirts, and so on. LOVE, love, love it now.
I showed you earlier in the week how I took a scrap piece of peg board, left over baskets, and spray paint and turned it into an organizer for my jewelry. I love being able to see it all and being able to easily access what I want.
All of these clothes and many more went to charity this week. Ahhhh, what a good feeling!
I switched out clothes hangers from around the house so all the ones in my organized closet are white.
So, here is the finished, organized closet.
Don’t you love it!? I actually want to get dressed now…oh well maybe not…my jammies are still more comfy!!
Anyway, next week I’m on to organizing the rest of my bedroom. My built-ins and attic crawl space…should be messy!!
Wow! Looks great! Attic crawl space? Really???? I can’t wait to see that! Your bedroom closet sure turned out nice though!
I had a closet purge and full wipe-down recently. I wish it was for something as positive as your cleaning challenge. Mine was due to a mouse shuffling its mortal coil in the wall behind the closet. Yours looks GREAT!

Wow! That looks great! I especially love the peg board. Thanks for sharing! 🙂
Please let me know if you’re looking for a article writer for your site. You have some really great posts and I feel I would be a good asset. If you ever want to take some of the load off, I’d absolutely love to write some content for your blog in exchange for a link back to mine. Please shoot me an e-mail if interested. Thanks!
a little closet hint…when you hang up your clothes..hang the hanger backward..when you wear the item put it back on the hanger the right way.. when you purge you can easily see what you haven’t worn.. the backward hangers were never worn.

You’ve motivated me! I have a bigger closet, but it also needs some organization. Thanks! Gail

A lot of people are also challenged by the task of organizing their closets. The story that you have shared can inspire them to be patient in doing the task. Thanks for sharing.
Amazing ! It really looks greats and doesn’t seems that they are small as so many things can be adjusted into it. Even I have small rooms in my house and looking for similar closets. I just loved it.
