updatedcloset

Picking up from my last closet organization post, I wanted to share the latest look of my revamped space.

  • After my last post, I decided that the shoes were taking up too much space and so was my IKEA Malm dresser. (For reference, my entire half of the duplex is a mere 450 sq. feet!) I sold the dresser on Craigslist for more than what I thought it was worth, and threw everything out of the drawers.
  • I made use of the shoe rack and decided to keep clothes on the shelves I made. A much more efficient use of space.
  • Unmentionables are in the baskets, which I need a few more of.
  • I’ve finally stained all of the wood components.

I think the most important thing I’ve learned so far is that space is like gold. My closet has the essentials, yet it still has room to grow. A crammed closet is not fun to wake up to every morning! When you pull out a shirt, 5 more should not come tumbling down.

But hey, I’m not done yet! I need some kind of doors or curtain to cover it all up.

    So jealous of your organized closet! I’m moving this week/weekend and our closet is TINY!

      I know how you feel! I had a walk-in closet before this one… Luckily, I honestly don’t have too many things since it’s only little old me now.

      Good luck with the move! I moved back in January and I feel like I’m just now starting to settle in… haha

    Your closet is so organized, I love it! You’re right, when space is limited, it’s really important to have only what you use/need. I just got rid of like half my closet a month ago and it felt great! Can’t wait to see what you choose do with a curtain or something!

      Thank you! Even so, I can’t wait to hide it away again… I’m tired of staring at it in my bedroom. Haha.

      You’re right, cleaning out the closet is SO important! Sometimes I’m amazed by the amount of clothes or shoes someone has. This little amount that I have barely goes through a few cycles of being worn every month.

      Thank you again, I’ll make a post as soon as I find the right hide-away solution. :)

    It’s looking great so far! I love the little shoe rack… might invest in one of those myself.

      Thank you so much! I think that shoe rack was only like $15 at Target. :) It expands horizontally to be much longer as well. Great purchase!
