What's in your closet? - LeeMo Designs

What's in your closet?

Every year, as I feel spring heading my way, I get excited and then depressed about my wardrobe. I don't have one of those super fun walk-in closets with shoe and bag shelves. I have a dresser and half of a reach-in closet. When we moved into our house, I really wondered how I would realistically just use half of the closet space, but I devised a system to help me with over-buying and space conservation.

One in, one out.

I use this concept in all of the areas around my house. If I buy a new shirt, then I look through all of my shirts and pluck out one that I've worn the least. If I rarely wear it, there's a reason, so it's not terrible if it gets donated.

I organize my closet by type of clothing, and then by color within each section. I don't know why - but that's what has always worked best for me. From left to right, tank tops, t-shirts, shirts, button-ups, sweatshirts, then pants.

Sometimes the hangers turn into a little bit of a mess if I've slacked on laundry consistency, so I designed closet dividers and hanger tags to help me remember the beginning of each section.

Bonus: The clothing icons are offcuts from my cedar closet dividers - when I say I try to use my material as efficiently as possible, I really mean it!

How do you keep your closet organized?

    I haven't loved the other martini recipes I've tried, but *this* hit the spot. I may even go make another since it sounds so delicious as I write this.
