Husband and I have been trying to finish furnishing our room forever, and keeping in mind that Baby will be here in a few months, we finally got motivated and bought some dressers (the last major furnishings we needed in our room). We've been using our childhood dressers that were not only terribly mismatched, but too small, leading me to store more things in the closet, which turned into a mess.
|2 1/2 bars like this--overstuffed, disorganized, with clothes thrown everywhere.|
|I have 9 out of 15 cubbies, and they were overstuffed with jeans, purses, socks, scarves, hats, and bras, to the point where things spilled onto the floor.|
|I sorted my 2 1/2 bars of clothes (1 1/2 not pictured) by style and occasion (for example, work clothes vs. play clothes, trousers vs. skirts), then by color. Also put away my shoes that littered the floor!|
|And the piece de resistance.|
It's been over a month since my big closet reorganization, and do you know what the best part is? Everything is so well-organized that I don't want to screw it up, and actually, at this point where I have more space, it's kind of hard to screw up. My closet and dresser drawers are still really neat-looking (and I don't even have clothes thrown out my floor and bedroom chair anymore!).
