Hall Closet Clean Up

My back hall closet was getting a bit out of control…

The hats, scarves and gloves 

were overwhelming the little baskets on the shelf.

I also wasn’t properly utilizing the hanging shoe rack on the right.

 The coats were looking sloppy….

and this picture was taken after I already got rid of a few!


And the floor had become a dumping ground for anything and everything!

But after only a few simple updates, 

I was able to make the closet a little more organized!

 I bought some bins from Walmart

 to hold the loose scarves, hats and gloves.

Since I needed more floor space…

 I bought a bamboo shoe rack to help organize the shoes and boots.

(Most of our everyday shoes are kept on the shelf in the laundry room.)

Cheap and easy to assemble!

 I cleared out the coats we were no longer using, re-hung some that were hanging on hooks in my laundry room and made sure I used all wood hangers for a cohesive look.  I decided to use the hanging shoe rack on the right to hold additional gloves and cold weather gear, since we have so much of that!

 So with a few quick changes, the closet was a whole lot neater!

I was so motivated, 

that I decided to buy a shelf for the garage.  

(And put it together myself, I might add!)

It looks like some of the closet overflow will make its way out here!

I guess the change of seasons

makes me want to get things in order around my house!

Have you been doing any organizing in your home lately?
