This week’s Project Simplify assignment was closets and drawers. I decided to attack three spots in our apartment that were definitely in need of some reorganization. I’m actually rather proud of my accomplishments this week. When you live in a small apartment, there’s nothing like the joy of being able to maximize your storage space or discovering secret storage areas you didn’t see before. Here are my before and after pictures – Enjoy!
Under the Sink Bathroom Cabinet
Cool slide-out shelves for toiletries
Coat rack had way too many jackets on it (mostly mine) and bench was a place where I piled stuff.
This is our hallway shelf. Notice all the unused storage space on top.
Bench has been cleared and coats not currently being worn are hung up in the closet. We are each designated two hooks, with the last two for umbrellas and guests.
Now all the scarves and hats are in a basket and boxes put up in the secret storage space high up.
Oh…and I also did a major shoe purge. How many pairs of black and brown shoes do I really need anyways?
I’d have to open this closet slowly or else the vacuum cleaner and/or ironing board would fall on me.
I hid the ironing board under the couch since I haven’t ironed in years. This made room for Larry’s guitar in the closet, which is usually just propped up somewhere in the living room.
Whew! Wish I could be this productive every week.
