Small organizing projects: closet spaces

Usually, this is the time of year I re-evaluate my spaces and reorganize. However, this year, my attentions are elsewhere.


Still, that doesn’t stop us from trying to make our day-to-day spaces function better. Usually, when we change over from our summer to winter wardrobes, we stash the out-of-season items in underbed bags under our beds, and put some unneeded items in the tops of our closets.

You see, we have some really high, tall shelves in our closets. In the summer, you can find our winter scarves, thermal underwear and winter hats here. In the winter, this is where you’ll find our swimsuits.

Something was wrong with this picture: here it is February, and what was in the top of the closet? Thermals.  And what was on this vertical shelf, within easy reach? Well, the only thing useful to our current weather was my collection of toasty socks 🙂


I began by pulling out all the baskets from the top of the closet and the vertical shelf. The summer clothes and swimsuits went on the hard to reach top shelf. Mine and hubby’s thermals were separated into separate baskets and placed side by side on the vertical shelf. This was an improvement over putting all the thermals in one basket.

By the way, I had this floral paper on all the baskets but it keeps peeling off 🙁

The other baskets on the shelf contain winter socks and winter shirts with a donate basket on the bottom.

Tune in next week for more organizing projects!!
