I love showing a quick closet organizing project, because it really gives you an idea of what is possible in just a few hours. Maybe this will give you inspiration for your own closet organizing project this season.
This client had several closets that needed attention, but they didn’t need a new closet system. They honestly and truly just needed organizing, using the five steps for organizing that I always use. Here’s what we started with:
With a closet this small, we need all the space to really work, and this isn’t cutting it.
This is the organized closet after. Look…FLOOR!
But that’s not really impressive. We also organized the second closet including shoes, boots and hats.
We switched out seasonal clothing and put it in a third closet, the cedar closet.
That’s three closets, four seasons, three levels of the house.
So how long did this all take? Less than 3 hours.
The best part? The client donated some lovely but unworn items to her favorite charity, The Career Wardrobe. Did you see my pictures on Instagram from last week’s event at their Wardrobe Boutique? She also sold several lightly used name brand purses and made just about as much money as she paid to work with me. So it was a win all the way around!
Does this give you some inspiration to organize your closet?
I live in my family home that’s been in my family for generations. The things from the past are crowding me out. I’d be happy to pare down and get rid of many things, if I weren’t afraid that one or two of those trinkets might actually be worth something. I wonder if there might be value in that clutter. What should I do?

Putting things back together after a renovation can often be tough. After so much energy and decision making on the renovation work itself, restocking the closet can just be one more chore. I recently had a chance to help a client put her space back together, and I thought you’d just love to see how it looks.
These bins help to keep everything accessible and easy to find. The 1″ labels make categories easy to see.
From top to bottom, every inch is used. Plastic packaging is used to keep blankets together. The colorful stacks on the left are sheet sets folded into their own pillowcase (click to see how).
The towels are neatly folded in this organized linen closet.
It really does make a difference how you fold.
You might not think this is a lot of towels, and that’s because these are just the towels for daily use. The guest towels are organized and on display as part of the decor.
Common bathroom items like cotton balls and soaps are stored here, as well as things you might need only once in a while, like jewelry cleaner. The bins not only make it easy to find things, but are a good way to tell if you have “enough” of something. Do you really need a whole bin or more of deodorant?
Even cleaning supplies and extra paper goods are pared down and neatly organized here on the floor.
No more fumbling for the bandages or wondering if you have enough cold remedy. Everything is marked and stored neatly here. Yes, this is the one and only linen closet in the home, and it’s admittedly small, but by using every inch, it is more than sufficient.
Can you take any ideas from this organized bathroom closet to try in yours?
