Purging & Organizing

We have been on a roll cleaning out & purging closets, drawers & cabinets trying to get ready for our garage sale. This closet that is right outside of our main bathroom has been organize before, but always ends up looking like this after a while...

You can see all the little baskets from when I organized last time. Somehow things just don't make it back in to them.

This ended up being a 2 part process. My daughter & I started cleaning out one evening & ended up finishing the organizing the following morning.

We still have a lot of stuff, but it looks much better :)

In my baskets I have things organized by catergory. Sun block & sunburn spray in one, nail polish in one, tummy medicine in one, etc. I think this makes it easier to find what we are looking for.

I LOVE lazy susans. I think they are a great way to keep things tidy & save space.
I also LOVE that I did not buy a single thing to complete this organizing project :)

I always feel so good when I am done with a project. What projects have you tackled lately??

I am linking up at Organize & Decorate Everything. Head over and grab some motivation!!

  1. That is so great to include your daughter in helping you! Really, it's a great way to teach her to organize plus she'll be more motivated to keep it that way! Everything looks great - saw you from the link party!
