Earlier this week I saw an idea on the Better Homes and Gardens website and I thought it was genius. Okay, genius may be a bit of an over sell but this is an idea that will definitely work for me so I thought it might be useful to some of you, dear readers, too.
This past spring I did a bit of order tweaking to my closet.
I made and added this jewelry organizer to the end of a shelving unit to corral my bracelets and I concentrated on creating some semblance of order to my shelves.
I use the shelving in this closet for jeans, tanks and belts and I have tried to keep things easy to see by separating items by color and style.
The cubes hold things that don't need to be folded or ironed like leggings, yoga pants and sport bras.
Next I bought these clear dividers to help keep my stacks of folded items contained.
They work okay. My shelves are not especially thick though so these dividers tend to slide around a bit. I probably need to add a bit of velcro or wedge something under the clips to help secure them. Somehow, I have never gotten around to that.
As you can see, I also labled the shelves so I can keep my styles of jeans separated so I know what I am grabbing.
Don't you hate it when you think you are grabbing one pair of jeans, they unfold, and they are not at all what you thought they were? If you do that enough times the pile is a full on hot mess. I know, first world problem.
This solution of labeling worked wonderfully for me all summer. As I look ahead towards fall though those crops aren't even going to be an issue. Where the crops were I will have stacks of sweaters.
I like uniformity. I'm a little OCD that way. So even though I will obviously know that is a stack of sweaters. I want them labeled like the rest of the shelving.
I know, quit laughing or shaking your head.
So when I saw this so simple, why didn't I think of that idea, I knew it was for me.
Velcro backed labels that can be switched out with the seasonal changes in my closet!
These could be applied to the bins too.
A ridiculously simple closet organization idea, that is what I love today.
Have a great weekend.
