The start of a new year is one of my favorite times of year.  Not so much for the wintry weather (I’m a summer-lovin’ gal), but the chance to get organized during the dreary days of winter brings a sense of order and renewal.  It’s nice to get things together in preparation for busier months when our schedules pull us in all directions.

Organized Closet Reveal!

Coat Closet - Organized

The other day I posted about the problem with our front hall closet.  It was a mess.  Always.  I reorganized it a zillion times, yet it was a constant struggle to keep it neat and clean.

I have organized and re-organized our front hall coat closet more times than I can count!  It seemed to be stuck in an everlasting state of disorder.  “Clean the front hall coat closet” is a regular on the kids’ chore list.  No matter how many times I have “solved” the problem, it was never really solved.

A great place to put your bin is on an easily accessible shelf near where you keep your purse or keys. I picked up a bin at Target and keep it in my front hall coat closet.  There is a shelf at eye level where I can easily see the bin […]
