Hall Closet Clean Up

My back hall closet was getting a bit out of control...

The hats, scarves and gloves 
were overwhelming the little baskets on the shelf.
I also wasn't properly utilizing the hanging shoe rack on the right.

 The coats were looking sloppy....
and this picture was taken after I already got rid of a few!

And the floor had become a dumping ground for anything and everything!

But after only a few simple updates, 
I was able to make the closet a little more organized!
 I bought some bins from Walmart
 to hold the loose scarves, hats and gloves.

Since I needed more floor space...
 I bought a bamboo shoe rack to help organize the shoes and boots.
(Most of our everyday shoes are kept on the shelf in the laundry room.)

Cheap and easy to assemble!

 I cleared out the coats we were no longer using, re-hung some that were hanging on hooks in my laundry room and made sure I used all wood hangers for a cohesive look.  I decided to use the hanging shoe rack on the right to hold additional gloves and cold weather gear, since we have so much of that!

 So with a few quick changes, the closet was a whole lot neater!

I was so motivated, 
that I decided to buy a shelf for the garage.  
(And put it together myself, I might add!)
It looks like some of the closet overflow will make its way out here!

I guess the change of seasons
makes me want to get things in order around my house!

Have you been doing any organizing in your home lately?
