Ok, here are the results. And for the record, I can't believe i'm putting this "before" picture on the internet. yikes. You can see in the before picture that there are a couple tubs full of out of season clothes/dirty clothes/ clothes that need to go somewhere else. These have been a constant in our closet. I have put a tall laundry basket with a lid on my "wish list" that will go in another corner of the room for our dirty laundry. putting a basket on the floor of our closet just doesn't cut it. the basket fills, overflows and quite quickly takes over the entire floor of that side of the room. so we're going to try a smaller corner and see how that works. I've got one giant garbage bag of clothes to go to goodwill and another shopping bag of cute skirts to offer my friends first. Turns out I really like to own skirts, but not wear them. The shocking part of that to you my friends is probably that I actually own skirts :) I also got rid of several pairs of shoes. as much as i love shoes, i haven't worn some of them since I was paid for my work. The bins on the shelves I scavenged back from my children who had been using them to play house with downstairs. My love of all things "Container Store" has finally paid off.
I'm pretty happy with the results, Mike hasn't done his shirts/pants section but I did some of his other stuff because it's shared space.
One other place I got inspiration is from www.theproject333.com
Now to see if we can keep it this great :D
