When we moved into our new house I had the opportunity to go through everything I owned as I hung it all up in my new closet. I went from a sliding door closet in our old home, to a walk-in closet which has been such a nice change. It's not the biggest walk-in closet ever, but it's much roomier than the one I previously had. I tried to organize it so I could see almost everything (some shoes are still hiding unless I move clothes out of the way to see them, and I stuck to color coding by the rainbow. That's my favorite way of organizing. These aren't the greatest pictures ever, but I've had a few requests to post pictures of my new closet so hopefully these will give you an idea of how I organized:
View to the left side as you look in:
(Top shelf holds bulky sweaters and purses, while the rack holds scarves, winter coats, dress pants and dresses. Shoes line the floor underneath two rows deep).
Looking straight in:
(Top rack has all my hanging shirts and bottom rack holds my belts (can't see), tanks and skirts. Shoes line the floor three rows deep).
Close-up look of shoes and bottom rack:
Behind the Closet door:
(If you go in the closet and close the door you'll find a whole wall lined with shelves which was perfect for my folded shirts (top shelf) and cardigans (bottom three shelves). I have my cardigans folded in piles according to color and sleeve-length. I'm a little OCD like that. =) Shoes line the floor, two rows deep. I mainly keep summer sandals under there. There is also a shoe holder that hangs behind the closet door that I forgot to take a picture of, that holds more flat sandals and flats.
So there's a little peek into my new closet. I love it! It's so much easier to see everything in this closet and organizing by color helps me see what I have and what I'm lacking (not much).
How do you organize your closet? Do you go by the rainbow? By brand? By wherever you can find an empty hanger? =)
After going through my closet (again) I have found a few more items that I plan to sell. They are items I like and even love, but just don't work for me for one reason or another. I'll be posting a few items soon so if you're interested, check back!
Have a great Tuesday!
