Big Closet Cleanout!



This spring I did a big clean out of my closet (it has needed it for a VERY long time!) I also took pictures thinking it would make a good post :)

  Well.......First thing I did was take everything out of my closet and put it in various places in the room (mainly on the floor, but you didn't hear me say that! :P ) This took me a LONG time! lol I didn't know I had so much stuff :P Then I vacuumed and dusted in the closet.

Then I started the sorting into piles for giveaway, the attic, or back in the closet, the pile of things to go back in got bigger and bigger so I had to go through it again! :(

As you can see it was quite a mess!

now that looks better!




I started to put some of the dresses back in the closet
(that got them off the floor and I was keeping most of them)

I told myself that nothing was going back in the closet that
I was not positive I would wear! 

I put the longest dresses in first....

But almost all of them are long :)









It looks pretty full again :(
But at least its organized!

A scarf hanger is one thing that helps to organize
(I use scarves often)
I have little (or some not so little ones!) totes and bins
that I use for bags and purses
Here is something else that is very helpful
for those who wear skirts, a skirt hanger


---------------------------------------------------------------

And here's what I got out for giveaway!


after all of that work it doesn't look like that much! :(

Thanks for stopping by!

  5. Usually the rule of thumb for me is if I haven't worn it in the past year, then it goes into Good Will. I do this in the Spring and the Fall.

  7. I love my skirt hangers!! I used to have one for hanging pants that you just folded over the top, but it got lost in a previous move.

    My closet needs a good clean out every year or it becomes a real 'monster' in my house.
