As you notice in the first few pictures I use to have a mess on the top shelf (purses, hats and more in no order) and un-hanged clothes on the floor, some of my hubbies old work and snow boots thrown about on the floor, our clothes mixed on the rail.
The closet bugged me with it’s disorder so I knew I needed to take action and organize with items already in our home since at the time it was late a night (hubby at work) and no extra money. I recycled some things in the house to help me with this task. Here are some of the items I found and put to use:
-Clear plastic bins I used for my students when I used to teach full time- these became useful for belts & clutches in one bin, scarves and gloves in another bin, and important documents and folders in another, then there were extra bins left over for future use.
-I used the pink and white patterned tote for holding out of season purses so as to hide them for now and for décor.
-I used toilet paper rolls to hold up the hats.
-my hubby and I were unable to sell a set of wicker shelves at our last yardsale so these became the shoe shelf for the closet-these now hold my wedges and heels, and a wicker basket became the basket for Chantry’s work boots and dress shoes.
– A door shoe holder from Big Lots holds flip flops, flats and tennis.
-even though I didn’t follow the matching hangers trend, most of our hangers were yard sale finds donated to us from my hubbies grandmother, which were then discovered in our basement after having been forgotten for a year or more. Not to mention our clothes are finally separate.
What do you do or use to organize your closet?
Have you ever used recycled pieces from your home to organize?
