Last spring, Kendi of the infamous blog Kendi Everyday generated a series of posts about creating a working closet. She has many helpful tips, so you should check it out if you haven't already read it! I do not have a walk in closet, so my organization is a bit different from Kendi's.
Let's start with the furniture, shall we?
This is my dresser. It is very wide, which makes it bulky and difficult to move. I labeled each drawer so you can know what is inside.
|Yes, I have a lot of sweaters. Too, sweaters can be bulky so they take up a lot of space!|
|These white cubes are fabric and were purchased from Ikea last spring- they are sold 3 in a set|
Now you may be wondering where I keep everything else. Don't worry, I will show you! I have 3 of these bins under my bed. They are completely hidden underneath, I just pulled this one out a little bit to show you. I store socks and tights in 2 of them. The third, larger one, holds more workout clothes as well as odds and ends clothing items that are rarely worn such as ski pants.
I also have a number of hoodies and sweatshirts. These hang on my bathroom door, on the inside of my bedroom on over-the-door hooks which I purchased at Target.
Finally, on the outside of my bedroom door, I have this hook (also from target) where I hang newly purchased items that are not quite ready to go into the closet yet. Why? I don't actually know. Sometimes I get itchy to buy something new, and then when I look at my door, it is a reminder of all the new things I own that haven't been worn yet and that scratches the itch. Also, sometimes when I buy things and put them in the closet too quickly I forget about them and then months or years later I find them in the closet with the tags still on. So for now, they hang on the back of my door, for my lovely roommate to admire every time she comes out of her room, until they are worn.
And, that's it! What do you think? How does my organizational system compare to yours?
