Closet Cleaning - Take 2

Lately I've been gathering inspiration photos of wonderful closets and wishing that mine looked like these:

Unfortunately, reality dictates that I share a closet with my husband and it's not even a walk in.   We're lucky to have a nice closet organizer that maximizes the space, but I've got to learn how to make do with less.  I have gone from a large walk in to myself, to half of this space:

I purged a huge bin of clothes that I hadn't worn in 2010 and was left with... a ton of knitwear.  I'm embarrassed at how much of my wardrobe is casual.  This exercise made me realize what's missing from my wardrobe: blouses.

Next on the agenda is a trip to TJ Maxx and Nordstrom Rack in search of pieces like these that will raise my cardigans up a notch and pair well with my work trousers.

Have you taken a good long look at your closet, lately? 


  1. I too have been in closet cleaning mode. Love it when it's freshly organized!

  2. I'm with you on the closet thing. My dilemma is shoes. O'm out of space with the current set-up and suspect that this is going to be a lifetime battle. I really should just go through and purge some by being honest about the ones that I actually wear, but I haven't gotten that brave yet. :)

  3. I put some of my shoes in purgatory (the guest room closet top shelf) and left them there for 6 months to make sure I wouldn't miss them before taking the leap to donate. I never went and got any of them down, so off they went to a rack at my local Goodwill store. I am a champion excuse maker, so this whole process is hard for me!
