I cleaned my closet!

I had let my closet go... again.
It was time.

So, this morning, I went thru everything and threw out some things I never wear. I know I should have thrown out more, but it is hard! Maybe tomorrow I will go thru everything AGAIN. I keep thinking... well, I MIGHT wear that sometime.... HAHAHA

So, here is the mess.... I was sorting and had a pile of hangers on the floor!

6 bags of clothes loaded into the car to take to the D.I. trailer...

At the D.I. trailer... good bye clothes... I hope you find a good new home!

When Bradly Boy came home, he went up to change... and he came to the top of the stairs and he said, "WOO, what did you do to my closet?!!!" LOL, I think he was happy! He even put together another shoe shelf for me and loaded it with all my flip flops and flats! Thank you honey!

How often do you clean out your closet?
And, how do you organize it?

Holy Moly, check out all of those shoes! You should have a contest of who can guess how many shoes you own! Ha. But I'm loving the closet organization! It's picture perfect. Kudos!

I love to clean out my closet! It makes me so happy! I always like it when my sisters help me. It makes it so much easier to get rid of things when they are there telling me it looks worn out, or it's not cute on.

Your closet looks so great!
I usually go through everyone's stuff about once a year and we either do hand me downs to friends and/or the D.I.
Lately though my closets are all stuffed to the brim because I have all these kids coming home and leaving and they fill up all extra space with their "stuff". It's crazy.

I am completely jealous. I could fit all of my clothes in one of those bags you gave away. Look at the closet. Fantastic. I have like 5 pairs of shoes too. Me need help..

I cleaned out my closet the other day but it didn't turn out quite like yours....

Shauna said...

Awesome! That looks so good! Way to go :)

Wait!! I need those pink wedges. : )

Looks fabulous. I really need to go through mine again. I have one bag sitting ready to give away, but need to add to it. I'm like you, if I think I may wear it again I keep it. And then get rid of it in 8 months.

Wow! OK, you have motivated me! After the grandkids leave, I want to do my "closet purge" for the year. I really need to get it organized and ready for the warmer weather! Your closet looks GREAT!!!

I wait until my daughters come and clean...say...once every time I move...oh me...I must put the house up for sale it's been 15 years. When I say I really like that and I "might wear it again"...Mom...let someone else like it for awhile. Good for you...maybe I will think about it.

That closet looks amazing. Maybe you will inspire me to do something about mine.

Jodi said...

Bren's Life said...

Looks great! Wow- I wish I had all your cute shoes..
I do the same thing as you. I keep things & I swear I probably will never fit into it again..
I really miss you. Feels like we never chat anymore.

Funny...I started on the kids' closet yesterday (notice I said started?) and am hoping to finish it later. I really need to go through mine right now too. I think you have just given me the motivation I needed. THANKS!

Jenn said...

I feel better just looking at YOUR new and improved closet!

Lisa Loo said...

heather said...

Stacy and Clinton would be so proud!

Tanja said...

Probably twice a year but it's always such a big task but I love it when it's done!

Looks great!

Sher said...

Oh man, I sooo need to do this. It's been probably at least a year, since I cleaned out my closet. And I need to do it for myself, my kids closets, and the toy room.
Not to mention my special junk closet in the basement which contains several boxes that have never been unpacked since we moved in 3 years ago. I think it's time for some de-junking.

Ashley said...

Wow, way to go!!! I haven't cleaned out my closet since we MOVED and I had no choice. That seems to be the only time I clean and organize my closet, is when we move. Sad but true.
