Another Mess Conquered

Okay this one I was dreading - my closet!!!  Admittedly I did NOT take as many before pictures as I should have because it was just too embarrassing.  Both Kevin and I had to spend time trying things on to see what still fit, look at what we haven't worn in ages or just won't wear again.  Sort the stuff that had managed to accumulate on the floor of the closet and almost made it impossible to move through without stepping on something.  I seriously had one of those "how did I get here ?" moments.

Clothes clutter without organization I purposely won't pan down to floor and show the mess : (

General shoe disarray and floor clutter
Generally messy shelves

I have 3 large bags of clothes to go to charity. Two storage tubs of winter clothes I've labled and put in storage on the shelves in the garage, and two trashbags of stuff that just needed to go.  I seperated and labled shoes, purses, belts and sweaters by colors and style in order to actually be able to find them when I need them!!  Then organized Kevins shirts by colors for the same purpose.

Cleaned up, cleared out and organized by style and colors
Belts and shoes and shelves organized and labeled
Purses in storage boxes, clothes organized clutter free floor!!

Shoes stored and labeled

We will live with and keep these changes and in time do another purging of the items we find we really don't use so we can maintain a sense of order and cleanliness.  I am determined not to go backwards after all this.
