Before and after wardrobe photos

Here are the missing pictures from the last post...

This is what our wardrobes looked like when we moved in - not the best use of space.



This is the photo you'll have seen in the previous post of my wardrobe after we fitted and moved shelves about.


And below is the photo of my husband's wardrobe after we re-organised it. Instead of using a rod and hangers for Mr Laundrybasketcase's trousers, I bought some long prongs that are meant to be used on a slatwall in a shop. I got the idea after seeing the IKEA trouser hanger system, but theirs was too big for our wardrobe. It is so much easier to use this system than hangers.


I use to think that our wardrobes would be tidier if only we had more space. But it doesn't work that way. The truth is the more space there is, the more we would find to fill it up. So the best we can do is to keep our wardrobes organised and clutter free by not having more than can fill the space. Easier said than done... I know.

But for now I better get working on my next post! It's a secret one!

The trouser hangers are genius! How much easier and quicker to slide them onto those than man-handle them as well as a hanger (when really you could use 3 hands!). Clever, clever! :)

I badly need to do this in our own closet! Problem is, I'm crackerjack at emptying, but very poor at reconfiguring the space. I've gutted my closet and now need to fill it with shelves and what not. Even after looking at photos in mags and such, I'm at a loss as to how to translate that to my closet!
Your's looks great, by the way!

Very cool! I love your site and have a lot that I can learn from you! I'm always trying to organize, but always fall short in that area

A note on perfection

Many of the posts featured on this blog are about doing household chores the correct, or so to say perfect way. My intention is not to make readers feel that the way they are running their households are wrong. So if making the bed, or ironing shirts in a certain way doesn't fit your lifestyle, do not feel guilty about it. But by learning the correct way of doing things it might just come in handy for those times when special guests are staying, or when you need to iron that shirt perfectly for a job interview. So enjoy the learning, but skip the guilt and LOVE your homes. x
