Simplifying my closet - Hot Spot #1

I'll be linking up with Project Simplify on this week's hot spot - my wardrobe! Here is a before shot of our master closet. My dresser sits in there so all my clothes are in there.

I didn't have a lot of time this week to do this project, but I'm happy to report that I accomplished a lot in a short time. I didn't have a whole lot of extra clothes, I really don't have many and most of the ones I have I wear a lot, but there were some that I bought second hand thinking I would love them and wear them lots but they just don't really fit or work with any other clothes that I have. Those ones got tossed!

Here are the clothes that are heading to our front hallway 'give away' shelf.

Luckily we did this over the xmas holidays with my husbands clothes, so his portion of our closet is looking better than it did previously as well. I was hoping to free one drawer of my dresser up, so that I could put wrapping paper in there to free up some space elsewhere, but I realized that's where I had my maternity clothes stored for future use. I guess the wrapping paper can stay out of my closet! Here are some of my after pictures:

I think the main thing I learned from this challenge is that I need to sort through my bedside table! Oh, and figure out somewhere to store or organize my jewelry! I kept pulling things out of my dresser that shouldn't have been there, and that ended up in my bedside table... They barely all fit, and likely should be somewhere else... perhaps in the next couple of weeks I'll get to the bedside table. But in the meantime, I can enjoy my tidy & roomy closet!


  1. Katy, I keep off season and other things that I want to keep but don't use often in plastic boxes that fit the width of my closet shelves. You can stack the boxes and get more on the shelf that way, but if the boxes are clear you can also find what you want.
    And, yep, I have two closets that need sorting badly. You may have inspired me to take Jim by the hand and lead him to it.,

  2. That looks great! I love organizing! daisy
