Did you struggle putting together an outfit this week? We finally have had nice weather and I had to dig through my closet to find more seasonally approrpriate tops that were getting lost admist the flannels, big bulky sweaters and long sleeved shirts that I own.
I decided to partake in the Container Stores Six week challenge for this week and get myself organized.
I am ready to say goodbye to my winter clothing and hello to spring time. A family friend was having a tag sale fundraiser this week and this was a great opportunity to gather some items to contribute to a worthy cause.
It’s WEEK 4 of the Week Spring Order Challenge!! The challenge this week is to Put Away Your Winter Woolies.
Do you have winter wear that just seems to be…everywhere?! It’s time to clean, protect and put away your winter clothes and switch your closets to spring.
I wish I had taken a before shot of this semi walk in closet but just imagine boots all over the floor, clothing shoved everywhere and it was impossible to find an outfit in the morning.
I am lucky enough to have plenty of hanging space with double hang on the left and long hang for all my dresses on the right side. I rearranged all my tops by sleeve length making it easier to find tops. Now, there is no more looking inbetween shirts to find that tank that I thought I had lost. I also placed all of my wintry items on the lower hanging portion to the back of the closet. I can still access them if I need but that won’t be for quite sometime and then I will rearrange again to get ready for fall.
All of my tall boots are now located on the top shelf since I will rarely be wearing them this summer. No need for them to be taking up space all over my floor.
The Container Store has so many items to help you get organized but a must have item is their elfa closet and organization system that will change your life. It is so easy to install and you can always make modifications based on the needs of the space.
As you can see I have my jeans folded in the hanging sweater bag that area used to be for dresses but as that section grew I was able to easily change the design of my closet. The drawer units is one of my favorite pieces to customize.I am able to roll it around and use it as a table when needed before placing clean clothes away int he closet. I could have placed all my shoes in clear shoe bins but i decided to only place my heels in those boxes.
