Welcome to Week 17 of our Organize your Life series!

Organize your LIFE

  I am excited to show you my finished coat closet transformation!


First,  I will show you our awful before picture!!  (We all like seeing the befores, right?)

Oh yes, that was really what it looked like!  Embarrassing, I know!!!

It has looked like that for almost 4 years too!  It was just one of those places that I never tried to organize and would just close the door, ha!  Please tell me you have a place like that too!  Ok, maybe I am the only one but at least I finally organized it! 

Well, my hubby helped.  Oh, and the kids did too! Smile

Here they are installing my new shelves.  By the way,  I picked up all my shelves at a garage sale for only $30!!!  YES!  All we had to do was buy the backs and the things that hold up the shelves.

We just shoved everything on the table and I started going through it!

I like the shelves!

But,  I am obsessed with bins so I had to get some!

I love the ones at Walmart!  I bought the bigger version of the ones that I used to organize my crafts.

Now everything has a place!  BooYah!

I also made labels for every bin!

There is little to no room for shoving now!  I just love that,  I am forced to stay organized now!

I show you a little of the afters in a previous post but I will show you more today!

We keep our keyboard at the top!

Then our toolbox.  By the looks of it, I will be needing to find a bigger one!

It was easy to fill all the bins!

I love this bin, “Give to People” because I always have so much stuff to give away or people keep leaving their stuff here so now I have a good place to keep the stuff.

What do you think?

Do you have a closet like this?

What are you organizing now?  Anything?  Or do you take the summer off?

I am still using  Organize Now! by Jennifer Ford Berry but I have been posting a little of schedule.  I will get back on track when the kids go back to school!

What have you been organizing lately?
