Reorganize 2011: Master Closet

This weekend Hubby and I carved out some time and got our closet in shape.  

ACK!!! The before, what a disaster!!!

My Mom, the clutter shark, says to empty a space completely and clean it and start fresh.  Growing up when it was time to clean our rooms out she would empty every drawer, shelf and surface into a pile on the floor and we started from scratch.  So we did the big dump!

Here is the entire contents of our closet on our bed. And...

The closet all emptied, vacuumed and dusted!

We started with Hubby's clothes and he made hard decisions and got rid of clothes and put things away nicely. When his side was done, he went to do some work and I started trying on ALL my clothes.  I was realistic, I got rid of work clothes that I know I won't wear anymore.  If I didn't like the way something fit, I got rid of it.  I can now say with confidence that everything in my closet fits!  I even found some tops I forgot about.  All the clothes that we were going to donate....
...I chucked over the railing into the foyer. That was my favorite part :)

22 bags later!!

All that work was worth it.  It was exhausting trying on all those clothes but now my closet is heavenly!!



Everything has a place and it is much easier getting dressed in the morning!
Hopefully this inspires you to get your closet whipped into shape!
