It seems to me that the older I get, the less stuff I want and need. I'm cleaning out.



In the 5 years that I have lived in this house, I have had dreams of organizing the closet in my master bedroom. 
Now, it's not a huge closet to begin with, but the people who hung the shelving originally just put one shelf, all the way around at about eye level. 
I always dreamed of using the entire closet instead of just that strip. 


 
**WARNING**
You are about to view a "before" photo of my closet.  It was a frightening, filthy, awful mess.  Please scroll past this photo if you are faint of heart. 


I'm so sorry you had to see that.  And embarrassed for myself. 

So, the other day when the hubby and I were out, I sweet-talked my way into picking up a few organizers.  I had been measuring and planning and plotting for months exactly what I needed and wanted, so when I got to the store it was easy.

The hard part was putting the dang things together once we got home...

I'm only partially finished, but I just couldn't wait to share. 

Drumroll, please...



I know!  It's sooooo awesome already!  We still need to put up a few shelves at the top, add a few attractive storage baskets, and add a full-sized mirror straight ahead--but it's a huge improvement, right?!

Now, on to the rest of the house....

What orgainzational demons are you battling right now in your homes?  Most of you probably don't have any, but I have several.  What are you doing to fix them?  Any great ideas would be so appreciated.

Love it! My closet has that same shelf, I think that was what the builders around here put in all the houses. I have been planning my closet for about 9 1/2 years, I am jealous you got yours done!
