My closet was a huge mess with clothes and non-wardrobe items (Christmas tree ornaments, Halloween costumes, old scrubs, maternity clothes, bins of old T-shirts, ceramic handprints, table linens etc. etc.) all crammed in together. I've been doing a lot of ruthless closet purging and got rid of a lot of my old clothes and shoes. A lot of them still fit, but were really old and I never wore them. And I just finished getting all the non-wardrobe stuff out of there too (OK, so I just piled it on top of other messy areas elsewhere, but you gotta start somewhere...). I even organized the clothes by type and color and the shoes by type. Now I have a nice, clean, organized closet for all my pretty new clothes to go in! And there's even room for future purchases! Now I'm happy when I walk into my closet!

5. Jewelry, scarves, belts, dresses, long coats, bathrobes, purses.
7. I forgot to take a good before picture, but this is one from a few years ago. Actually, it was way worse than this recently...I could barely walk into the closet.
8. Here's a glimpse of how messy it was recently.
