Spring cleaning...Step one, closet!

 So I am by no means a clean freak or OCD about organization (I wish I was).  I am the type that lets things get to a certain "this is unbearable and I can't take it any longer" point.  Where I then slave for a few hours to make it sanitary and livable again.  This normally happens when I can't find something I desperately need to wear that second. Don't get me wrong though, I'm no slob.  My mom instilled in me the importance of going through my clothes at least once a year. You can't blame it completely on me though.  It is a royal pain living in an apartment that has 0 closets, no lie!! And I honestly can't remember the last time we had a dishwasher.  Oh the joys of extremely high rent and not one closet in our 600 sq ft apartment.
  I think I realized how unorganized I was when my sister came and couldn't figure out what clothes I chose to hang up.  I seriously have no rhyme or reason to where things go because when everything is clean I honestly don't have enough space for it.  So things tend to stay in an Ikea bag for a whole week until I have space to put them away and then the dirty laundry takes its place (a vicious cycle).   I so wish I could hire Olivia over at For Me.  Her organization skills are pretty inspiring to say the least.  So the time was due to go through my closet and get organized.


BEFORE

*The top picture is our tiny little wardrobe that houses dresses, nice shirts and whatever else I felt like throwing down there at the bottom (supposed to be heavy sweaters...I think).
 * Bottom pic is our shelving unit behind curtains that store just about everything that needs a home from purses to skirts to important documents...aka complete disaster!!!


AFTER

I am excited to someday have a house where my skirts don't have to sit in this bookshelf and can hang in a beautiful walk in closet =) Maybe something that looks like one of these beauties....

  2. I always get a bug in the spring to go thru the whole house, but it takes me forever because then i find this or that and stop to look at pictures or whatever. I take all my clothes I no longer want to the resale shop and or GW. I haven't done any of that yet as I can't tell if it's spring or not yet!

  3. I need to do this too...I moved a month ago and my closet has been a disaster since then. This is very inspiring, though, so maybe I'll get on it...

    I'm just like you. WISH I was a clean freak but instead I let things get unbearable and then go on a cleaning rampage.

  4. Air Cleaner make your air as clean as possible by removing particulates from your air and allowing you to breathe healthier air, it is important to those with allergies and asthma and for those who want the cleanest air possible for themselves and their family.

  5. A properly serviced air conditioner will also do a better job of dehumidifying your home. Our my AC Service Phoenix business provide air-conditioning repair and a quiet solution for cooling and heating problems.
