Some Closet Organizing

Hello ladies,

I'm not sure if everyone feels the same way about what I'm going to talk about, but we will see. The thing is that I love to have my house clean, but some times you just get behind or get LAZY about it, or sometimes you just clean but don't really organize closets, clothes, pantry and etc. Well I'm that way, I clean but I am not really organized, BUT it gets to a point that I just get frustrated because I can't find anything, and it's everywhere.

That's the case with my closet. Now my closet is not fancy, my husband and I share the same closet, belive it or not his clothes is more picked up than mine, but the only reason why that's possible is because he doesn't change as much as me, or takes him ten outfits to decide which one he wants to wear.

Anyways I finally took the time to organize my closet, I didn't buy anything even though I should buy a lot of containers to store t-shirts and other stuff, but for now all I need it was to be able to find clothes and shoes hahah.

So this is how it used to look.

Shoes everywhere, clothes on the floor, unfolded clothes everywhere and clothes not hanging from the hangers right.

I like to color coordinate my clothes but after a while I just hang them everywhere, or mix all my clothes, shirts with skirts for example.

I also have a habit of trying one shoe of each when I'm gonna wear hills and my mirror is out side of my closet, so the ones I don't wear they just end up in my room and not back in my closet.

I definitely need more shoe storage, I put all my sandals, flats and tennis shoes in another closet out in the hall way since there is not enough space.

 I also need to organized my jewelry since I have it everywhere too, some here, some in my restroom, some all over the house hahah.

After about two hours I finally got everything cleaned up, from putting dirty clothes to wash, to looking for the matching pairs to a lot of my shoes, to also hanging a lot of clothes.
I hang all my clothes by categories and colors, or at least I tried.  

 I looked for a few plates or something to be able to organized my jewelry, I already had some in here but I went trough a few of my kitchen stuff see what I could use.

I had this cute white ceramic shell, which was good to organized my earrings

I got this one at world market where I put my rings and watch, I was wearing my ring.

I also had this cheese tray, or at least that's what I would use it for, which I got at Goodwill, and used it for some of my perfumes.

It was funny while I was cleaning I found this envelope that my husband gave me before our honey moon, I thought it was cute so I kept it, I need to get a frame for it. It's a little personal but I think is something cute to see as I'm getting ready.

Here's a close up.

For now I just hanged it like this 

I also organized all my shoes and looked for the matching pair to all of them

I have a lot of ideas for my closet to have more storage, but that's in the future and is not one of my priorities at the moment.

Now, doesn't it look a lot more neater, It makes me wanna be in there a lot more when it's clean.  

 All those t-shirts are not all over the place anymore. lets see how long that last

While I was folding all those t-shirts I fond a few from when I was in High school that I haven't wore in a long time already, but they bring back a lot of memories.

I didn't bother with my husbands clothes trying to organized it by colors since he doesn't really care ahha.
I also think he has a lot more shirts than me, but is because he never wants to get rid of any and always buys more. I try to get rid of the ones I don't wear after a while, mostly when I buy new ones. 

The bottom is more on the empty side, I was washing a lot of our jeans and his shorts. 

I don't have many skirts, but the ones  I do have, I sure wear them a lot.

I love to wear bright colors, so I try to have a lot of colors in my clothes more than black.

One thing I do have a lot is cardigans, I love to wear them with dresses, even though is hard to do that here in Houston with this heat.

One thing I really need to get is matching hangers I hate all the different hangers, mostly the metal ones, they make clothes look messy.

 I know a lot of you have super organized closets, and maybe one day mine will be like that too, but  for now a good cleaning makes a big difference, maybe some paint later on, new hangers and some box storage will be good, but I am happy. I didnt have to spend any money for this project. What about you, do you organize your closet all the time, or is it a mess just like mine.



  1. Or...many of us have super un-organized tiny closets!! I could live in your closet...or run a business from there!

    This is yet another reminder for me to organize mine so i can find items in it again.....

    Nicely done. can i borrow those big teal earrings?

    1. Haha!!!

      Sure you can.

      It makes changing in your closet so much more fun.
