I can't begin to tell you how wonderful it is to have a clean, organized closet. Izzy and I worked our butts off this weekend fixing it up. Although I still have some clothes to hang/organize that are in other areas of the house, I would say things are 90% done. Pete's clothes are hanging on the right side on a rack near my clothes, and his dress shoes are underneath the rack. His work clothes are on shelves elsewhere in the bedroom, and his boots are in the closet downstairs.
I'm so happy, I almost skip to pick my clothes and shoes out now. Shoe racks would be nice, but I'm holding off on that until we figure out what house we'll end up in during the next year (we plan on moving at some point). But this is a thousand times better than how it was before, with mounds of clothes on the floors and shoes everywhere. It's so great to be organized...ahhhhhh...
