Here is what the closet looked like BEFORE (you might want to sit down for the before shots.)
Yikes, what happened here?
The first thing I did was take everything out of the shelves and threw it in a big pile on the floor. I then sorted out the stuff that needed to stay and the stuff that needed to go. I then created smaller piles for more specific things like shoes, blankets, hats and so on.
I had bought these baskets from my local Dollar General before my daughter was born. I think they were around $5.00 at the time and they have really held up well. My husband made the chalkboard labels with some left over scrap wood that we had. I saved the green gingham ribbon from a baby present we received and tied it to the label.
This little paint can came from Lowes. I cut out the vinyl letters on my Cricut and put them on the bucket for all of the travel sized bottles and little diaper bag stuff.
I think the most important thing to remember when organizing is that you don't have to spend a lot of money to make it look pretty!
Can I say what a relief it is to have this closet organized!
