This is a little bit embarrassing. This is my everything closet, the one that holds a wide variety of things, plus stores the stuff I need a temporary home for. It is always a disaster.
So a few weeks ago I tackled it and, well, wow. It made such a huge difference. The biggest change was the amount of extra space made to, well let's be honest, store more stuff.
I did some purging, some re-organizing, and some re-homing (if that is a word).
So, here's the before...
AHHHHH! And to be honest, it was even a little messier than that. I had already organized the floor before taking the picture. When we moved in, the previous owners left the extra floorboards from the bathroom remodel right here in the closet on the floor. For three years I left it there thinking
1. that it needed to be inside
2. that maybe I would clean that up another day
3. where else can I store it?
But I found a new home for the flooring, and opened up an entire new space for indoor storage.
Here's the finished product. It still isn't perfect, I would love some more storage compartments and such, but for now I am really happy with the results. I can now store the diaper bag and my purse in there, which is a much better place for it than the kitchen floor where Elsie promptly empties them.
