For weeks now, I want to scream in horror every time I open up one of the closets in our bedrooms. I don't even know what happened, or how they got so bad so fast, but it looked like a war zone in all of them. My closet just had shopping bags exploding out of the bottom, mostly with some Christmas gifts that I've already purchased, sweatshirts spilling out of the shelves on top, and shoes thrown all over the floor. The boys closets were both filled with clothes that dont' fit them any more, but needed to be sorted by size then placed into bins to go up to the attic; instead, I had started piling them up in bags in their closets, but those bags were overflowing at this point. The closets needed some serious attention.
Here is Jake's closet, the before & after shot...my favorite organization piece for the boys' clothes are these hanging things with slots in them; perfect for pants, sweatshirts, etc..without having to stuff every single piece of clothing into the dresser.
Here is the discarded pile of clothes that no longer fit him....later placed into bins and ready to go to the attic!

Unfortunately, I didn't get a before shot of Liam's closet (but trust me, it was bad), but here is the after!
And my closet:

This project literally took me about 5 hours...I was exhausted and my back hurt by the end of the day, but it was so worth it!!
