closet chaos to closet bliss

(almost) not kidding, i was this close to developing an eye twitch because of the boys' closet. this was ONE month after i purged and re-organized it. i knew i needed bins that were ALL the same size or color, or it would never work. i measured the space, found the bins and was ready to purchase...







dang ikea was out of stock on the bins i needed to get the job done.

so i waited...

and waited...

and waited...


and finally monday am of last week i checked the stock, and they were in!! hallelujah.
quick trip to ikea.

















here is the after.




































alex's scout shirts are all that i hang up. (the boys church clothes are in my closet. i was tired of finding them wadded up on the floor~ often still on the hanger. and the "special school papers" and boys' treasures were over flowing the top shelf. now there is a place/bin for it all.
even the clothes the boys will grow into.

before & after




























each boy has his own shelf with a row of bins.



























a box for library books we will be borrowing this summer.

before & after



























organized the boys school papers and treasures.





























(and two BIG empty boxes to store all of the summer games/books/puzzles i have stashed for the summer.)


they were so proud of the new organization & wanted to pose for the camera.





































too cool.

A place for everything and everything in its place. And I love how everything is labeled. I really need to do that too.
