Last Friday, I did a post on organizing beauty products and tools (“Beauty Junkies Stay Organized“) as inspired by InStyle Magazine. Interesting enough, over the weekend I got caught up on blog reading and came across a great post on La Dolce Vita titled “Beautifully Organized: Hanging Earrings“. The title is pretty much self-explanatory. The post featured decorative and stylish ways to display and organize earrings.
The post not only inspired me to organize my jewelry collection, but also, my entire closet. By the time I was finished sorting through clothes, earrings, necklaces, purses and shoes I had 6 big bags of stuff to donate to my local thrift store.
Besides throwing out old clothes and accessories, this is how I got my closet back:
(1) I used a shoe rack and hung it on one of my closet doors and placed the shoes that I wear the most on the rack.
(2) I used a pants hanger to hang all of my belts and ties.
(3) I picked up a jewelry organizer from Marshall’s for $14. I absolutely LOVE this organizer, because it doesn’t take up much space, I can simply hang it up in my closet, also each jewelry piece has it’s own compartment so they don’t get tangled AND it’s double sided.
(4) Besides the shoe rack hanging on my closet door, I have three other shoe organizers that hang from the closet poles. These come in handy for my larger shoes and other accessories that I want out of the way.
Well, enough about my closet. Hopefully this post has inspired you to tidy up your closet as well. If so, I’d love to hear your ideas on how you keep it organized.
