We're all in our places, with bright shiny faces..

Is this not the way to start a new day, or new year...or at least a new closet? I'm hoping so. I try on a regular basis to reorganize, sort and purge my closet at least once a year. This last weekend was the event, in case you missed the telecast and here are the results of my endeavor. This happens to be the one and only decent closet in the house, and it looks much bigger in the photos than in reality. One side has all my tops, including a lot of t-shirts that I don't have folding room for in the bedroom. This closet oddly enough it is in the hallway next to the living room, down the hall from the bathroom which is off of the study and kitchen. Needless to say, getting dressed in my house involves a lot of wandering naked or semi-dressed when you include the fact that the panties, bras and sock are in another room altogether!

I had to move out all of my coats and heavy jackets, as well as some dressy dresses that I don't use all too frequently into the two-foot wide closet in my bedroom. It's all one big, intricate puzzle that takes as much time planning out as it does sorting.

This year, I finally relented and moved the shoes back in with everything else. They did occupy the tiny bedroom closet, but it was dark, and just plain inconvenient. I already had the two grid boxes, which are for shoes but I used them for other items...and now, they are back to their original purpose. Just leaves you speechless, right?

And for those of you who know me well, you'll notice that this couldn't possibly be all the shoes I own. I managed to put them in a hanging back on the back of the door. My only dilemma at this point is I have no more all...really. If I find one more pair in the house, I'm screwed.
