A little over a month ago, my friend sent me a text message with her new organizational method for her shoes. As soon as I saw what she had decided to create in her guest bedroom's closet, I knew I had found a new mission. I instantly grilled Shannon on where to buy the supplies she had used. I found myself looking for a cube organizer by ClosetMaid. I looked at Walmart without any luck...and decided I would go to Target the next. However, my mom and I stopped at the grocery store on our way home, and WAHLAH! There in the middle of a random Valentine's aisle sat some ClosetMaid cube storage! I was slightly excited--more so when I found out that instead of being over $40--they were on sale for $15! :) Double bonus, I will buy two thank you!
|Here it is put together and doing its job--organizing!|
So after three weekends on the road, I decided that today was THE day. Starting bright and early at 8:30am, I began to pitch unnecessary items, donate decent items to GoodWill, and of course gave some things to Henry to chew on for a bit. This task (while I know will be worth it) was like a full day of work. I did not stop until 4pm!
So here is what I was dealing with before...
As you an see my closet was a mess. I mean who was I kidding? I have no idea how I even found my clothes, shoes, purses, accessories. But I guess it worked as best as it could, as I did make myself presentable each day. However, with staring at this every day, I knew I was like a little girl...struggling to get out of the plastic storage days of college. Don't get me wrong, I would go back to OU in a heart beat, but I needed an "adult" closet. I see all of these beautiful displays on Pinterest each day. I am not totally convinced that those pictures are of REAL people's closets and not a catalog picture from The Container Store, but I digress. I just knew I needed help. And thanks to Shannon I was headed in the right direction!
So after hours of hard work..and me being exhausted writing this post...you will see my new shoe closet. Where are my clothes you may wonder? I moved all of them into the guest bedroom's closet. I definitely now consider my fashion world organized.
|Shoes are aligned together by type of shoe or brand of show. I am a tad weird when it comes to organization.|
|I had to instagram it! I am proud!|
That's....just what jess is up to! :)
