Closet & Craft Organization: A Before & After (or, In Progress & More Progressively In Progress)

Remember the baskets I made this week?

They were part of my greater goal of organizing my closet. I figured that there is no excuse for it not to be neat and organized. My husband doesn't live in there, my littles don't play in there, my cats don't wrestle in there, so all of the little excuses that I use for my house being messy and disorganized absolutely does not apply to my closet.

I have been weeding out, and slowly simplifying it for some time now. So my "before" photo is more of an in progress...(eek, just imagine an actual before photo).

After adding some command hooks to the door, weeding out clothing that I haven't worn in months and swapping, eBaying, and Good-willing them, and sewing the buckets to store my yarn, and stacking up my Scrapbooks so that they are accessible, here is what it looks like today:

I am still hoping to replace the hangers with wooden ones. Any other ideas for my closet? I'm no Benita Larsson, but the difference makes me a little bit giddy.

I have also switched up the shelving over my desk. The boxes just weren't working for some of craft supplies, and this crate has been perfect:

Here is what it looked like before...almost too clean, huh?

And so that has been what I've been up to lately on my long journey to an organized life. What do you think?
