Sunday morning I spent most of my time not showering and stalking Pinterest. I found this really great blog that put me in the mood to get organized and spend my life savings at The Container Store.
I emptied out my closet and put everything on the bed. The entire closet was empty. I intended to just go through my clothes, donate what I don’t want and put everything I wanted to keep back in the closet. James came in after I dumped everything out and had the great idea to take the long rod down, put up two rods on each side and add shelving in the middle. If he was feeling handy enough to start a project, I was smart enough to let him!
After two hours between The Container Store, Bed Bath and Beyond, a trip home and another trip to The Container Store, we had all the materials we needed. We bought two Start-A-Stack systems and four ventilated shelves. James did all the hard work by screwing everything up and I started tackling the clothes I didn’t want. It took me for what felt like forever to sort through everything and get rid of what doesn’t fit, what doesn’t look flattering and fold or hang up everything I wanted. Now I need to go through my dresser and get re-organized.
This photo shows my closet almost done. I just need to fill up the drawers! That garbage bag is a construction sized bag that holds everything to be donated.
