My Closet

In one of my recent newsletter (you can sign up for these at the right –>) I mentioned that my “project” for the month would be organizing  my closet. After the newsletter went out, I received countless e-mails from clients and readers, asking to see pictures of my closet. So, since I have nothing to hide, here it is! Pretty great huh?

OK…so that’s only my “dream” closet; I think it might be bigger than my living room! But isn’t it amazing??

On a more realistic note, our closets are  just small, double-door closets — nothing fancy here.

However; I am lucky that we have 2 separate closets so my husband and I don’t have to share — definitely a perk.

…and I do know from experience (lots of it!) that even the smallest closets can — and should — be organized.

Here are a few pictures of my actual closet…
My dad built custom closet systems to help us maximize our space.

Shirts and skirts on the left — jeans and t-shirts in the middle — pants, belts, and dresses on the right
No, I don’t color-code my closet!

Sweaters and sweatshirts are organized by weight on the top two shelves.

All my purses and bags are on the top shelf as well. I have a basket for the smaller bags.

(Notice that I use all the same hangers…which really helps to save space!)

So that’s it. Nothing special but it’s organized!

I am pretty intentional about purging, especially if I buy something new. Personally, I try not to even buy anything unless I know I have a place for it in my closet…and am willing to part with something else! (this is also a great way to save money!)

So, for all of you who were so eager to see my closet, I hope I didn’t let you down!

What about you: Could your closet use a little organization?

Which closet is your most unorganized? Your most organized?

Do you have any secrets or tips to keep your closets organized?

    This is giving me great inspiration to do the same with my own closet! I have made a goal to weed through my wardrobe and make replacements as necessary.

    It is well organized. Good job there.

    I keep a small drawer organizer for small items like socks etc.
