We are in the 13th week of organizing our homes. This week we venture into the dreaded master closet. If your closet is full of clothing that no longer fits, if there is a mountain of shoes you don’t even know you own, or if your closet is in such disarray, you get palpitations walking into it, you really need the challenge this week. Take your time this week. Pull out everything from your closet onto the bed. Go through it all! If you have the means, purchase some nice new hangers and shoe boxes. You spend a lot of money on your wardrobe. Take care of it!! Once you are finished organizing the entire closet, take a picture and share your hard work with everyone here on this post. Good luck with the challenge. This is a big one!!

HOW THE CHALLENGE WORKS:
Home Organization 101 is 14 weeks long. Each Saturday, I will post a new “space” along with pictures of my finished space and share the process of how you can organize yours. You can take as long as you need, and once you are finished organizing your space, come back here to this post and link up your blog (with pictures) to share with all of us. If you do not have a blog, you can take pictures and share them on our Facebook group page (here
). Questions, ask away… Our facebook page is the best place to ask them. Have fun! Now lets get organized.
Week #13 – THE MASTER CLOSET
We only have 1 more week to go!! Yay! This week we are organizing the master closet. Your goal for the week is to purge, clean, and organize your master closets. I bet you really need this challenge!!
1. Take a picture of your space “before” you start & share it with the facebook group here.
2. Gather up 4 baskets: Keep, Trash, donate, other room.
3. Sort & purge! Go through everything in the closet. Take it all out & organize into the bins.
4. Clean! After you have sorted through everything, you can vacuum or mop the closet & wipe down shelving.
5. Organize! Now its time to organize. Hang the clothes in “sections”. Short sleeve, long sleeve, pants, dresses, etc… Color code if you are feeling extra ocd. Organize the shoes too!
6. Now take an “after” picture. You’re done! Come back here to share your hard work.
MY MASTER CLOSET
In our new home, we are blessed to have a HUGE master walk in closet. Its about 25×9 in size and fits a lot of stuff. I knew that I had to find a good system to organize everything or it would end up out of control. Also, I chose to hang all of our jeans/bottoms as well as all shirts. I kept my t-shirts in my dresser. I love how it turned out! Its nothing fancy… no elfa systems or any of that, but we love it and it works well for us.
The shoe boxes came from the Container store. I purchased a pack of 20 boxes for about $30 or so.
The decorative storage boxes are from the Container store as well. They are on sale for $16.99 each. They house beach towels, camera equipment, keepsakes, sports stuff, and travel items.
Below are wire drawers from Ikea. They store my husbands things (socks, pjs, swim trunks, white t-shirts, underwear, etc…).
My husbands belts and ties are organized with these neat hanging things from Bed, Bath, and Beyond. They were under $10 each.
My nursing uniforms, medical bag, and shoes are organized together for easy access.
The shelf on other side of the closet stores boot boxes, jewelry boxes, dust bags, etc. The decorative container keeps “boxes” for electronics, etc. (Ipad, kindles, etc…).
My husbands side is just as large as mine.
I found this shoe organizer at the Container Store. My flip flops fit perfectly in them. It was on sale for $12.99.
My husband hung a large peg board on one wall in the closet for my “accessories and purses”.
The hooks came from Home Depot. I love this system so much!
I used a shower curtain hook for my belts.
Thats our organized master closet. :) If you have any tips or ideas on how I can improve anything, leave me a comment.
Please welcome our sponsor this week Heather Campos, an independent stylist from Stella & Dot. They have beautiful vintage style and new jewelry. Their items make perfect Christmas gifts.
