MY SPACE
I feel like I could talk about organizing closets all day long.  There are so many different types of closets and all of them are different shapes and sizes!  We live in a small, older home so I’ve had to get creative about how organize my closets.  With narrow, deep spaces, it’s not always easy. 

The closet I’m the most excited about, in our house, is my daughter’s closet. Kids’ closets can be the hardest to organized because not only do you have clothes, you also have school papers, toys, etc. I recently received this incredible custom closet from EasyClosets which gives me all the storage I needed to organize all of her stuff!

On the top shelves I have IKEA boxes that store her baby keepsakes, calendars, school work, etc. They were really inexpensive and they look great!

On the shelves below I have a few pictures, her puzzles, books, toys, and of course, her clothes. One of my favorite things about this closet is that her clothes are hung low enough for her to reach them. This helps me be able to teach her how to hang up her own clothes and stay organized.

We also have a vallet pole so that we can hang out her clothes for the next day.

And of course my favorite thing is all the storage for her toys! Every toy has a place which makes it easy for clean up and it teaches her how be organized. (Full post coming Wednesday!)

Here is how I organized my linen closet.  The shelves are very deep so I used baskets to store smaller items, that way if I need to access items in the back I can easily pull the basket in front, out of the way.  (See the full post here.)

Our master bedroom closets are also fairly small, and being a girl, there is never enough storage in a small closet.  On the {one} shelf in my closet I also used baskets for storage.  Placing items in baskets has allowed me to store so much stuff, on my one tiny shelf! (See the full post here.)

My favorite closet organization trick is the one that made me think outside the box.  I personally, have a lot of jeans and sweaters, and those take up a lot of space in our dresser drawers!  So I purchased this shoe organizer and came up with a creative solution to store them vertically, giving me tons of extra drawer space! (See the full post here.)

My biggest advise for how to start the process of organizing a closet is to take everything out of the space first.  Then clean closet, wipe down shelves, vacuum it, etc.  Next throw out (or donate)  anything you don’t use/wear anymore.  Once you’ve done all that, then start placing items back in the closet.  Whether you use baskets and/or a shoe organizer to organize your stuff, the most important thing is that the closet functions the way you need it to, and that all of your stuff is easily accessible!

Now it’s your turn!!!  I can’t wait to see what creative organizing solutions you come up with!
