Organizing Day 8: The Coat Closet

Well.... what a nasty thing our coat closet turned out to be. Dear goodness I was shocked to finally take a look!




This is the top where the coats are hung every which way and junk is piled up on top. Not too bad right? Well, just look at the bottom.



Cat not included! :o) She thought it would be neat to investigate. She didn't stay long. Not even Claws wants to fight the mess.



All the coats are out and some of the junk off the top.



Oh my goodness this is what is left on the bottom (and no that isn't my Christmas tree still up. I bought a cute little tree that was just decorated with some greens and flowers so we are keeping it up all year. It is a fancy decoration)  Not at all because I want to keep up some kind of tree all year long and no there are no ornaments on it.



We pulled out all the coats and some junk. Look the guitar for the Wii was in there....
This was the bin that used to hold gift bags and ribbon and such. Obviously it didn't survive.

All the bags I pulled off of the top of the basket when we pulled it out. We had a picnic blanket and some more board games I thought I had picked out and organized in the hallway linen closet the other day.




Still more stuff in it! When will it all end?


All swept out. I even found a glass top for a small table in there. I had NO idea that was in there!



The coats are now hung up from largest in the back to smallest in the front. Much better.


This section has a 3 drawer organizer, the wrapper paper organizer and my yoga mat.


The organizer has bows and ribbon in the top drawer, gift bags in the second drawer, and more gift bags, a few boxes and the tissue paper in the bottom drawer.


On the shelf above the coats is the basket with our workout jump ropes, weights, and elastic bands.


In the middle is the purple container with scarfs on the left and gloves on the right.


The last basket has all of our winter hats. We had 12! Who has 12 hats? Apparently us.




At the bottom are our winter boots and an overnight bag that Emma uses when she spends the night with Grandma.

The entire closet makeover cost just $14! The plastic wrapping paper organizer I already had. The 3 drawer organizer came from Wal-Mart for $11 and the 3 containers at the top on the shelf came from the Dollar Tree for $1.00 each for a combined total of just $14! Not bad for a much needed closet redo.
