In yesterday’s training recap post I mentioned that over the weekend I worked on a fun project.
That project was re-organizing my closet from top to bottom! You may think you have seen messy closets before, but you haven’t seen what my closet looked like.
If you have a few minutes, you can see the whole project from start to finish in my latest vlog (including an embarrassing peak at what my closet looked like BEFORE it got organized):
I can’t believe I’m actually sharing what it looked like before! 🙈
I ended up taking literally EVERYTHING out of my closet in two rounds. First the right side of the closet and then the left, and poured the contents on my bed.
I knew if I put everything on my bed I would be forced to actually organize things quickly. Otherwise I would probably just leave everything on the floor for ages. I hate cleaning/organizing/sorting stuff out, but I love the end result!
After dumping stuff on my bed I headed out to Home Goods and bought some cute closet organizers :).
Cecil gave them his stamp of approval by sitting in all of them. That’s the official cat way of saying something can stay in the house.
Eventually everything got sorted and added back into the closet! Here’s a sneak peak from when I was just about done:
If you watch the vlog you’ll be able to see the entire closet!
I ended up having two bags of trash and one bag of clothes and shoes to donate that I haven’t worn in ages. I got rid of ALL of my heels. I haven’t worn high heels since I was in grad school and I have zero desire to get back into them.
I do have a gift card to DSW though and I plan to go purchase some new shoes asap because the closet floor is looking a little empty now!
I want to organize Adam’s closet next but he says he thinks his closet is fine the way it is. Hmmmm! He is generally MUCH more organized than I am when it comes to house stuff. When it comes to arranging a vacation or things to do, I’m definitely the more organized one. We balance each other out!
Do you like to clean/organize/tidy things?
