We only have one closet in our master bedroom, which means that I have to share a closet with the hubby (insert scary face here).  The hubby is not the biggest fan on putting his clothes back where they belong.  He’s more of the “I’ll shove my clothes into one drawer/shelf and look for it later when I actually need it” type of organizer.  Well that wasn’t working for me because I would cringe whenever I would open the closet to put away my clothes!

Organizing The Master Closet

As you can see, things were really out of control.  So I decided to clean up the closet with some spring cleaning.  First, I took everything that was hanging out of the closet so the rungs were completely empty.  Then I started with the hubby’s clothes.  If he hasn’t worn it in the past year, I either put it in the donate pile or the sell pile.  I had him turn around all of the hangers so the round part of the hook was facing in.  Once the shirt/pant was worn, I would turn the hanger around.  When it came time to figuring out what he wears and what he doesn’t, all I had to do was look at the hangers!

Then it came time to evaluate my clothes.  Seeing as I have just popped out two babies in the past two years, I had to come to terms with the fact that I now have hips and boobs (which I never did before).  So some of my clothes I didn’t get rid of before baby #2, ended up getting put into one of the piles on the floor and not hung back up in the closet.

Once everything that was going to stay in the closet was hung up, I needed to make some changes as to where things were stored/hung.  I started with my dresses/scarves because they would only fit in one place (the left side of the closet)!  Then I put all of the hubby’s shirts back up on the top right side of the closet.  Since I am so short, I put my shirts on the bottom right side.  In the middle of the closet, I decided to put our jeans and dress pants.  Having the jeans and pants in the middle of the closet really worked well for us, so I didn’t want to change that.

Now it was time to evaluate the shelves.  They were just not working for me!  So I took to the dresser drawers to see what I could do to make the hubby’s clothes less noticeably messy!  I decided to take my tank tops and t-shirts out of the dresser drawers and move them into the closet.  I put Ben’s shirts in that drawer and now I don’t have to look at them any more!

After getting rid of some of the sweaters that we don’t wear any more, I think the closet looks much more organized and easily accessible!  What do you think?
