March goals --- Closet cleaning

Hey, check this out. I actually cleaned out the hall closet. This hasn't happened since we moved in. I was so eager to get started that I forgot to take before pictures. You will just have to take my word for it. It was bad.

Newly organized hall closet:

Yeah, baby! I get really excited about this sort of thing.

Don't worry about the floors. We are going to refinish them as soon as we win the lottery. Clean closet tour.

We picked up matching hangers for coats, Ikea $3.99 for 8:

I should really paint that hanging bar.

To store our shoes, I bought three metal stacking bins at Sam's Club, $25 for the set.

The container next to the shoes has Murphy's food. We bought the storage at Petsmart, but I don't recall how much it costs. It's air tight to keep out bugs and moisture.

Our boots hang out on the top shelf, next to a container filled with reusable bags (and some of the famous Ikea blue bags we like to use for projects and moving):

We even have some side hooks for weird stuff like umbrellas:

In addition

  • Got rid of shoes and coats that we no longer used.
  • Moved hats, gloves, and assorted winter gear to the designated spot in the mail cart basket.
  • Moved some things (that belonged there) back to the garage.
Isn't spring cleaning grand? I can cross another thing off my March goals list.

Great idea with the hooks on the side!
