My Hallway Linen Closet

thumb_IMG_2552_1024I forgot to mention my hallway linen closet upstairs.  This holds my beach towels up top and then two shelves of towels (bath and hand towels separately).  I also have a shelf of medications, vitamins, and essential oils.  On the floor I have my extra soaps, nail polishes, heating pads, and extra hair products.  I have used bins to organize all of these items on the floor to fit the most I could.  The main point of this closet is to hold all of the guest towels.

My Husband’s Two Closets

Since my husband has significantly less clothes and shoes than I do, he has the small master closet and the closet in the upstairs living room.  The small master closet stores his work clothes, pants, ties, and belts.  As well as his nice sweaters and shoes for work and nice dinners.  He also keeps his suits in this closet.

The living room closet stores all of his work out clothes and hang out clothes.  It also has his sneakers.  He keeps his bathing suits and ski gear in here as well.  It is a perfect place to store his sweat shirts for working out and his jerseys for game days.  It is really his casual clothes closet.

My Summer/Spring Closet

This closet is in my guest bedroom that is my old master bedroom set.  This guest bedroom has my summer and spring clothes and shoes.  I keep all of my dresses and skirts in this closet.  I also have all of my tank top and short sleeve shirts in here.  To go along with my summer and spring attire, I have all of my shoes for the season of course lining the floor.

The other clothes that I store in my closet are my nice dresses to wear to weddings and my shoes for these events.  It is easy to keep all of these dresses and shoes in a separate closet because I don’t wear them very often.

My goal is to change my master bedroom closet seasonal items out with this closet’s attire since it is May already.  I will only have to change the clothes out twice a year (when winter become spring and when summer becomes fall).

How I organized my Garage

My garage is currently unfinished.  You can see the beams still on the ceiling, and the walls are a mixture of particle board and dry wall in the garage.  The builders left us some pieces of our carpeting from upstairs so that we can piece it around our cars and walk around.

We put my husband’s old desk in the garage for his tools.  We also used old plastic tiered storage shelves that my mom had used in her classroom to organize our cleaning supplies.  I used two of the tiered organizers to get our outside shoes in order (outside shoes=rain boots, snow boots, old sneakers, flip flops that you use to take out the garbage in).  I used a small tiered organizer to keep all of my work out and yoga stuff in order.

Our garbage cans sit in the middle of the garage by the doors so they can easily be taken out.  Last, but not least, we have our brooms and mops hanging beside the garage door so I can just grab it and clean inside.  My husband installed it quickly and easily.
