Closet Organization Tips via Lucky Magazine

First things first: we have a winner for the MilesOfLight giveaway: JULIE of Julip Made! Thanks to everyone who entered the giveaway! 

I read this article a few weeks ago, and for the last two weeks I've meant to write a post on it. Clearly, I'm suffering from mashed-potato-brains with everything that's going on right now!! 

I've written about closet organization before, and if we weren't leaving this home in a few months I'd be working on turning our third spare bedroom into a BIG closet right now. Sigh.. I did tear out this article and put it in my "inspiration binder" -right next to my "I'm-the-biggest-geek-in-the-world" folder. *I don't really have a folder with that label; the binder though: true story. Even though I won't be applying any of these tips immediately, some of you might be able to, and besides, who doesn't love to look at a beautifully organized closet?!

If you're anything like I am, then you're in equal awe of the rug (from ABC Carpet) as you are the closet. How fun is the step ladder by the way? 

An "outfit inspiration" board seems impractical for a closet, which is precisely why I love it. I think the editors/stylists should have added a vase with flowers to make it over-the-top impractical. Then I'd really be excited... :) *Stop rolling your eyes, Dad. 

Drawer divider. Now this is actually practical. I'm not sure why I haven't done this yet.

They used bookends to divide the handbags and LED lights. Great ideas!!! 

Have you undergone any closet organizing lately? I'd like to say that it's about time to move my winter clothes to the back of the closet and the warmer things to the front. Yes, I'd really love to, but with 34 degree temperatures outside, that seems more impractical than having a vase full of flowers in my closet!!! 


  1. These closets are dreamy!! I love that your dad reads your blog. ;-)

  2. Thanks Kelly for offering such an awesome give away! Also loving this post because I am moving in a week and organizing my closet will be at the top of the priority list. Sadly it won't be a beautiful walk in like the first picture.

  3. I've done a bit of closet organizing, but in order to get really serious, I need a bigger closet! I have some spare space in my office and have been thinking about getting some IKEA Expedit cubbies to store/display shoes in.

  4. Love! I'm contemplating turning a room into a closet so this helps a lot! Thanks for sharing:)

  5. Beautiful closet! Love how there's a place for everything and everything's in its place. =]

  6. I recently donated FIVE bags to goodwill!! It felt sooo good until I looked in my closet and realized I barely have anything left. It's very nice and organized now though :) The closet above is great - lots of great organizing techniques.
