Closet makeover!

Since I'm now engaged, I've had to think about what it will be like to have a permanent roommate.  
I've lived alone for years now!  I can be pretty bossy, especially when it comes to my home, so it'll be an adjustment for both of us.  Hey, at least I know my faults!

When I get married, I plan on having Tae move into my place.  Right now though, there is no space for him!  I am a secret pack rat!  

I consider myself to be very clean, but I never claimed to be hyper-organized.

Soooo basically I will show you what my 2 closets look like now, and some of my organization products I plan to use in my closet makeover. 

Oh, and my bedroom closet contains maybe 50% of my clothes.  I have a dresser with 6 huge drawers for the rest, and it's jam packed!  Poor Tae doesn't know what he's getting himself into!!

I'm having my wire shelves taken down and will have double-hanging with wood shelves.  I am so excited it is going to be GREAT.  This is all going down on Tuesday, so stay tuned!

Here is what my bedroom closet looks like right now (you can enlarge all of these photos):


Andddd this is my entry closet/coat closet: 

Products to help with organization:
Acrylic shoe boxes from the Container Store.  I didn't order enough..
5 of them are larger for BIG heels.  I plan on keeping just my nice shoes in these boxes.
Closer view, love these!  

I bought 200 new hangers.  My mom recommended these, they are thinner than ordinary hangers and save space.  Also, they are a velvety material and clothes stay put... I don't know if anyone else has the issue of clothes sliding off plastic hangers??

New, thinner velvet hanger on right!  Compared to ordinary plastic hanger.
Please excuse my fingernails, they all just broke off due to the cold/dry weather!

If you're interested in these hangers, you can get them from Target or here on Amazon
Can't wait to see it finished!

Meijers grocery bag!!!!!!! How I've missed that giant grocery store.

I don't remember your entry way closet to be so huge, but then again..I didn't really invite myself into the closet when I last visited. lol

Minh and I have 300 of those "huggable hangers" in black velvet from COSTCO! They have 50 for a little under $20. When we got them it was $15 for I hoarded! haha we still have 2 boxes unopened. I figured I'd buy all the hangers I'll ever need so they'd at least match!

I really like your shoe box drawers. Some women on youtube use those as their "clear cube" to store makeup. They buy the plastic inserts. Anyhow..this is the longest comment EVERRRRRRRRRRRRR

Will chat with you on AIM dawg!

I love reorganizing spaces! My closet is so jam packed right now it's impossible to even take anything out or put something in. I only have a few months left until my lease is up, so hopefully I will move into a place with a much bigger closet haha

I must warn you: if you do buy the MAC brush cleanser, there's a high chance that you will get addicted to cleaning your brushes like me (if you aren't already). xD

OMG your default picture... the ring... so beautiful! Every time I see that picture, it makes me smile so much!! ^o^
