Closet Clean-Up

I am an all or nothing kind of person. My house is either spotless or a disaster. There is no in between {this same quality has transferred over to my eating and work out habits as well but that's a whole other blog post}. I use the master closet in our bedroom and Stephen and I each have our own separate bedrooms. Stephen uses that closet for his clothes and I use my second closet for purses, scarves, belts, etc. The master closet is filled with all of my clothes and shoes. Mostly because I get ready in the mornings in my second bedroom. Stephen is usually still sleeping so I don't like to keep going in and out of our bedroom to grab stuff. A lot of it ends up thrown in my second room. Basically, after a few weeks it becomes an absolute mess. Below was what my main closet looked like on Sunday afternoon before I cleaned it. 

These are all clothes that I brought in from my second bedroom and threw on our bed so I could organize them.

It's not a huge master closet. I can't imagine sharing it with Stephen. But at the same time, because it's smaller, I should be able to keep it clean.

The shoes didn't look so bad. The boxes were just scattered all over.

I felt like Cher as I searched, discovered, folded, hung up and organized all of my clothes.

After just an hour or two of sorting and cleaning, my closet looked much better.

My shirts are color coordinated in two sections. On the left are my fancier and work shirts. On the right are my t-shirts and workout tops.

I keep dresses, longer sweaters, longer shirts and skirts hanging from the highest bar. Oh, and my wedding dress. I need to get that preserved.

I try to keep my shoes in boxes. I write a brief description of the shoe on the outside of the box so I know which one I'm grabbing. Eventually I'd like to get clear boxes for all of them but I'm not ready to invest in those yet. My tennis shoes are in my second closet. {I just noticed this photo make it look like the bottom shelf is tilted but I think it's just the angle I took the photo.}

This area is always clean. Nothing really changes about this corner. My bedroom {before Stephen and I moved in together} used to have a lot of green in it. I kept a few of those pieces and now they add a little color to my closet.

I ended up not getting rid of anything during this clean up. Because I'm kind of in between sizes right now, it's not a good time to part with any of my clothes.
