A little more organization in the closet....

Well this weekend I have been OBSESSED with cleaning and organizing. I will be sharing more about that tomorrow, but for now, I thought I would show you a little project I completed yesterday afternoon just to make my closet look a little prettier.

Recently, I had been eyeing some beautiful bins by Michael Graves at JC Penney's. I ran into JCP when it first opened yesterday morning in order to get my hands on these babies...

Originally I wanted to get all light blue bins, but they didn't have enough so I picked up two small blue, two small tan, and one big blue.

The area that I wanted to contain in these bins is one that has been driving me crazy lately. I have stockpiled quite a few items on my shelves, and although I was using an old boot box from Bakers as a bin, it wasn't working quite the way I wanted it to.

It was time to dump everything out on the floor, which resulted in quite the mess.

Then I sorted everything into categories; lotions, hair products, body wash, shaving needs, and dental needs.

Then it was time to put everything in a home!

A bin for lotions. Holy crap, I have a lot of lotion.

A bin for toothpaste, mouthwash and dental floss. I probably don't need to buy toothpaste for a long time.

A bin for razors and shaving cream.

And a bin for hair care and body wash.

The leftover items were corralled in a small pile on the floor.

And how much better do those shelves look now?

The items that I had in the pile on the floor were placed in a bin underneath my bed. The boxes of tissues that were on the shelf got switched to the other side where dental items used to be.

Should we do a little before and after tour?



How much better does that look?!

I swear I get giddy with excitement every time I walk in my closet! =)

Happy Columbus Day everybody!
