While on my break I did get a few things crossed off my to do list.
Take a look at one of my accomplishments this past week.
Shoes all over the closet.
AFTER (may not stay this way for long, but I'll try)
My shoes neatly lined up and in one place. It looks like I have a lot of shoes, and I do. However, many of these are as old as the sweaters I threw out. I couldn't get rid of clothes and shoes in one day.
More on vacuum sealing. I went to Target in search of finding some organizational tool. In honor of my dad, I was looking for some good containers. I found some, along with the vacuum bags.
I filled the bags with big winter sweaters and sweat shirts.
I filled one large bag with at least 17 sweaters. Why do I have so many sweaters?
Then I zipped up the bag and put the vacuum hose to the hole in the middle of the bag. I vacuumed until no more air could escape.
I turned this pile....
into this pile.
Amazing space saver! Now the sweaters can fit at the top of my closet instead of taking up 2 shelves.
See my new containers at the top of my closet in the picture below. They have dramatically helped my closet make over. These containers also come in pink and green.
I tried on everything in my closet. Some things twice. It took 2 days to get this all complete, but it was worth it. However, I have not moved all spring/summer clothes into my closet. I was really just trying to clean up my winter things. The summer clothes will be another day.
