It’s not the first time that I post about my master closet but I have added some little touches and kept the systems that already worked.
Sort and Donate
This is always how any organization project should begin. There are always a ton of items that I get rid of when I set my mind to it. I try to donate anything that doesn’t fit, doesn’t fit well or I no longer like. It’s even a good idea to go through I items again, even after you think are you are done sorting.
A Place to Sit
I like having a little stool in the closet to sit on while I try on shoes. I used to have a different one before but this one is smaller and works better in this narrow space. I found this one at Target.
Adding a Valet Rod
This clothing valet has been one of the best things about this closet. I use it to set aside my outfit for the next day, when I am sorting clothing or trying on multiple items.
I really take advantage of the adjustable shelves to make them work for me and customized to all the items that I own. That means that some of my shelves are really narrow, like the ones that hold my sandals.
Create a vignette
I don’t have space for a large vignette but I do like leaving a shelf semi-open and housing only a few items. Here I added one of my favorite purses, a bracelet holder and a little plant. The addition of the plant makes a huge different in livening up the space. Also, a vignette breaks up the monotony of shelf-after-shelf with shoes and purses.
Lots of bling, lots of fake.
Tie rack as a necklace holder
I have quite a few long necklaces that tend to tangle easily, and this tie rack works perfectly to keep them organized and tangle-free.
Placing a dresser inside the closet
I have an IKEA dresser inside my closet and the closet system is built around that dresser. I think it gave the closet a more finished look, while adding a lots more storage for my t-shirts and shorts.
Organize sunglasses and bracelets
Last year I posted about how I organize my sunglasses. This system still works for me. It is great for inexpensive sunglasses that don’t come with a case.
I have two t-bar displays for watches and bracelets in my closet and pictured below is one of them.
On the other side of the dresser, I have a little bowl with my hoop earrings, which is mostly what I wear.
A little ring plate sits on the dresser which is where I place the rings that I wear most often. Can you believe that small holder was a little over 4.00 at Target. Love those clearance items!
The rest of my rings are on this ring display. I purchased 2 of them to hold all my rings. Above my rings is a little shelf that holds all my perfume. I wear perfume everyday whether I am working from home or heading out with the boys. I know some people have a signature scent that they like, but I like changing it up and trying new perfumes.
I know that it’s not easy to take the time to go through all the items in your closet, but it is so worth it. I hope this encourages you to go through your closet and streamline your items. It’s a great feeling to walk into an organized closet every morning!
