So today’s challenge was to make your coat closet…well, an actual coat closet.
My coat closet was extremely messy and an area of my home I’ve been avoiding since Christmas. Mainly because all the wrapping stuff and decorations from Ev’s birthday got stuffed in there…along with a few other things.
So here’s my before picture:
I had gobs of grocery bags (I feel guilty if I don’t save them cause they’re so bad for the environment!). There was an unpacked box on the floor and a bunch of crap on the top shelf.
Here are my after pictures:
So what I did was grab some pop out bins from the dollar store. The one where everything is a dollar, not just even dollar amounts haha. I used one for our very small collection of board games, one for the baby wrap, one for my homemaking binder (which I will probably move to my command center once I actually have one), and the other one doesn’t have anything in it yet. I’m sure I’ll find something that needs to be put away along this journey. I left that tub at the bottom for things that need to go to the car as suggested by Imperfect Homemaking. Right now there’s a sun shield, a pair of jumper cables, some car fluid stuff and the few grocery bags I kept. I also added a small tub on the floor for Ev’s shoes.
So there’s my coat closet makeover. It’s not glamorous, but it’s functional and pretty organized. I spent a total of $5.
Stay tuned for tomorrow’s challenge!
