Day 8 - Coat Closet

Our coat closet is tiny, so there wasn't much stuff in there anyway.  Unfortunately, it's also the place where I have to store my vacuum.  Here's the "before" photo...


See that purple bowl?  Yeah, that was the bowl that we used to hand out Halloween candy.  The bowl was empty, but it still had lots of little crumbs in it.  GROSS!  I reorganized the poster tubes (I used to be a teacher, so I have lots of times table posters and stuff like that randomly stashed around the house) and lined up the wrapping paper rolls.  "His" coats are on the left.  "Her" coats are on the right.  I also put all of the hats in a bag on the top shelf.  Here's the "after" photo...

  1. looks nice.. I wish I would have taken before and after pictures of my linen closet! Goodness, it took me 2 days to wash, fold, organize by sheet size, towels by color and get the toiletries organized. It is a large walk-in sized closet.
    I also bought 2 christmas paper organizers that also hold bows, tape and such in a bin on top.

    My husband hates to put the linens away because he knows I will go back in and refold and organize what he just put in LOL

  2. Very neat and tidy! I love how you have "his" and "hers". I have the same vacuum as you :) Can you believe I don't have a place to store it?! I usually just put it in a room somewhere. Really tacky... I know. I think I will see if it'll fit with my ironing board.

  5. I think your closet is about the same size as mine. You did a nice job. Looks like you have a Dyson. Don't you just love that machine?

  6. I LOVE my dyson. I had to clean my old vacuum out regularly... I only have to clean the Dyson's filter every 6 months-ish. It's great!

  7. It's such a good feeling, isn't it to complete one area? I am still working on my "crafts"! They are spread everywhere. No container is big enough!

  8. Looks great :) Must feel good when you finish and have a nice organised house. When we sorted out my sons toys before Christmas it looked nice and felt good. Obviously on Christmas day they were everywhere. Time for a tidy up hehe!
