Spring Cleaning

My husband and I have decided to stay in our home until our 2nd some gets to school age.  Hopefully by that time we will be school loan free and daycare payment free.  Our goal for this is to be able to get the house we really want.  I have a pinterest folder that I have labeled My next home that I am forever adding my wants for that house in.  I like it because I put paint colors, decorating ideas, and tips and tricks.  While I spend my time dreaming away I realized that I needed to make our space work :)  One thing that drives me nuts is our closet.  We do not have one of those gigantic walk in closets.  Our stuff is crammed in there together which drives me crazy.  This weekend I studied the space.  I found a few things I new would give me a little more room.

1.  My shoe rack won't keep my shoes on it, so it takes up wasted space.  My shoes are forever sliding off.  I am done fighting that fight.  I bought one of those over the door hanging shoe pocket things and put all my flats on that.  I did take one level off my current shoe rack and put my shoes with heels on them because they do stay on. 

2.  I purchased several of those plastic drawers to house in my closet.  I got one large 3 drawer one and 2 smaller 3 drawer ones as well. I don't put the wheels on so that fit perfectly below our clothes.   I previously had a hanging shelf organizer in the closet.  That thing also drove me nuts.  The way our shelving is you cannot attached it completely so it kind of hung a little crooked.  I had to look at the clothes in their and that did bother me because it was never folded the way I wanted it to be.  

So far I am loving the renovation.  I cleaned up my purse box and put them in the bottom drawer of the large 3 drawer.  Used a small shoe box container for my wristlets and wallets.  Used a basket to sit on top of the drawer unit for my outerwear items.  I also purchased one of those hangers made for scarves so I can hang them up instead of keep them waded up.  I needed two of those and have 2 scarves through each hole :)  Have you started any spring cleaning?  I also did our fridge, bathroom vanity, and pantry.  Stories for another day.
