My Master Closet is looking better!

Yesterday I told all of you about my master closet reorganization.  Because of an after-school activity today, I had an extra two hours to spend working in the house (ie: no waiting in car-rider line for over an hour). I thought that would be the perfect opportunity to start the cleaning, sorting and reorganizing process!

The closet was a MESS to say the least, and I immediately  became overwhelmed and didn't know where to start.  But, like the saying goes..."How do you eat an elephant?" "One bite at a time!"  I started with Marty's things and then moved to my things, then to shoes, and eventually moved on to non-clothes related items (ie: wrapping paper, gift bags, tissue paper, boxes, home decor things).  I still have a TON of paperwork-type stuff to go through, but that will be a L-O-N-G process of sorting, shredding, and filing.

I definitely realize we need some sort of shoe organizer, because lining them up along the bottom of the closet is a total WASTE of floor space.  Anyone out there have any suggestions?

Here are the most recent pictures of the closet:

This is all of Marty's uniforms.  You think he has enough?

Putting the clothes this way seems like a waste of space, so I will probably end up moving this stuff around.  However, his uniforms take up more space than anything else, so they need a really big area.
 If I can find any more bins, some of this stuff will be moved into those.  I'm just having problems finding more of these particular size/shape/quality bins.  I think they have been discontinued.  :o(

See our L-O-N-G row of shoes?

I thought about adding a full-length mirror to this back wall.

This is what I managed to throw away.

I still have a TON of stuff left to go through, but for now, ALL of our clothes are sorted, folded and put where they belong!

Our Master Closet may become functional yet!
