So this is a bit embarrassing to show, but yes everyone, this is my closet. Before... I cant blame this mess on anyone else but myself. Alex has his own closet and believe it or not, its cleaner than mine! Lately we have been so busy and I just throw stuff in there! I cant believe I do this, but I do. Ugh. Time to clean up this mess!
First of all, I have tons of accessories and no where to really store them. I first took everything from the closet out. Some things no longer fit, or they were old and needed thrown out/donated.
I have about a bagillion belts, about a quarter of which had broken and I told myself I would fix them eventually. Or they didn't fit. Lucky for me once I took everything out of my closet, I noticed the person who lived in our condo before us had made many adjustments with nails, so there were multiple nails for me to hang things from!
I started with the belts. I utilized the nails that were already located in the wood. If you are worried about nailing anything in your walls, I highly recommend the sticky adhesive hangers that you can remove when you are done with them. I believe they are made by 3M or scotch. Once I did that I decided to organize my shoes, and purses, another great thing about our closets are that there are lower shelves built in for shoes!
I hung the purses then went on to the scarves. I purchased an Ikea item that you can hang scarves/ties/etc on!
It worked great!
I also used the wire beam for hanging some of my lighter rope like belts.
I used some baskets to replace card board boxes, and to hold smaller wallets and clutches.
Then finally relocated my dresses and clothes. Woo hoo! A clean closet. Since I did this clean up about a week or two ago, my closet is actually still not bad! Im proud!
Do you have any closet cleaning tips?! Id love to hear them!
