Hello from the other side! (Thanks Adele!)
I know it has been a long time since I last blogged. In fact, I wondered if I would ever blog again. It was just so nice to free up all that time to do other things. I’ve been continuing with my life makeover. I’ve also been super-busy at work.
A few weeks ago, I decided that I was just tired of being surrounded by clutter and things I don’t love anymore. Everywhere I looked in our house, there were just a bunch of things that I no longer used or loved. It was time for a de-clutter, re-organization, and makeover. First on the list was my master bedroom closet. We have two closets in our master bedroom. I have the walk-in closet, while Todd has the long reach-in closet. I had SO MANY clothes that I was no longer wearing. They didn’t fit, were out of style, or were worn and shabby. WHY were they still in my closet?? I was so tired of just wearing 1/4 to 1/3 of all my clothes. Time for a major purge! But because I am an over-achiever, simple purging my clothes wasn’t good enough. I had to totally re-do my closet, ha ha! I bought this closet organizer for under $100 off Amazon. I had looked at different systems such as the Elfa at the Container Store, the Algot from IKEA, etc. But I didn’t want to plan out a major system, when I planned to get rid of half my clothes. It was just easier to purchase this sub-$100 system and add to it or modify it later if I wished.
This was my closet before the makeover.
We hadn’t done anything to the closet since we bought the house in 2001! Seriously! It was just a very simple closet with some brackets holding up two long rods with a shelf on top. The white drawer & shelf unit was there when we moved in.
I had some storage bins on the top shelf for things that were memento/nostalgia types of clothing (sweatshirts from college, sports team championship shirts, etc.) that we never wore. However, the bins were designed with holes for handles and on top of the lid, so the contents inside got really gross and dusty from the openings. Yuck.
So the first thing I did was move EVERYTHING out of the closet. I took every single thing out.
I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing my closet makeover! I’m on a mission over the next few months to completely de-clutter my entire house and make it look nicer and refreshed. I will share here on the blog if the changes are share-worthy.
Thanks for stopping by! I know it’s been a while!
