From diaster to YAY! A closet’s journey….Part II

I left you yesterday with my closet about half organized.  But come Sunday, I decided to that I wasn’t going to rest until I had a functionally closet!  The first thing I decided to do was to work on my purses.  I tried lining them up on the shelf above one of my clothing rods – but wasn’t happy with the effect.  Then, I remembered reading in a book by Maria M………. that she hangs her purses up on hangers.  So, I decided to try this concepts out!


I decided I actually liked this much better!  If you look closely in the left corner, you can see some of the purses hanging up on hangers.  After tackling that, I looked at the small black wire shelf I had bought from Target, and decided that it would be the perfect place to store store my watches, parafin wax kit (I use this for my hands and feet – that is when I can find it!), label maker, and exercise equipment.

I decided something had to be done with the junk on my bed that I had pulled out of all of my purses (yes, I even cleaned them out!  I was sooooo on a ROLE!!)  In sorting out the junk, and thinking about the things I’m always wanting when I’m out and about, I came up with the idea that it would be wonderful to have a container where I could put the stuff I always carry in the purses.  This way, when I want to change out a purse, but am in a hurry, I can do so really quickly.  Here’s what my idea looks like in reality!


Having finished with one side of the closet, I decided to focus my attention on my costume jewerly, belts and scarves.  I’m a visual person, and tend to wear the same things over and over again.  Why?  Because if I don’t see it, I forget I have it!  So I hung my necklaces on the jewerly hangers I bought at Michael’s over Christmas break, put some (but unfortunately not all) of my bracelets in the jewerly pouch I got from Michael’s as well, hung the scarves up and the belts.  Now my closet walls (the ones without any rods) look like this!

    Hi Julia! Anne from Robert’s platform challenge. Thanks for visiting my blog! Yours looks good, too, but I agree, maybe a few more clicky things might spruce things up a bit, or a maybe a picture of yourself. Always nice to see who is writing. What platform is this? Doesn’t look like WordPress or Blogger. I’m on Blogger and have found it very easy to add things.
