Last week, I shared how I was suddenly overcome with the urge to clean & organize my bedroom closets.
In addition to the shelf dividers I got from The Container Store, I ordered some clear shoe boxes. They were perfect for stashing my ‘fancy’ shoes that I only wear occasionally, keeping them safe and out of the way at the top of this closet:
I was also thrilled with the boot-sized box, which holds both my brown & black boots and makes them easy to store through the summer.
It turned out that the clear shoe boxes are great for organizing anything in general. When my attention turned to the linen closet, I used two boxes to separate and organize the shell designated to bathroom-y type stuff (we do not have any storage in our actual bathroom). The bin on the left has some hair ties, etc. The pink make-up bag holds all of my nail polish, and the green is for travel toiletries. The center bin is holding razors, an extra head for my clarisonic, extra toothbrushes & q-tips. In the right corner is a plastic bin I already had, stocked with spare bottles of shampoo/conditioner and lotion that I will transfer to the bathroom/shower when needed.
I feel like everything is so much simpler and fresher, and plus- I know where everything is now! So far (a week and half since my cleaning frenzy) everything is still in place, and I must say our lives are slightly better after purging & paring things down. I am officially banning FH from bringing home any more hotel shampoo & conditioner bottles- you would not believe the collection we have! I’m enjoying the freedom that comes with just having less *stuff* to worry about!
What have you organized lately? What is your least favorite room/closet to clean? (I put off my bedroom closet clean up for FAR too long out of a general dislike of the whole process… but I’m so happy I finally tackled it!)
