31 Days of Spontaneous Organizing - Day #6: Closet Shelves

Today is Day #6 of 31 days of spontaneous organizing! Your mini-challenge for today is a shelf {or two} in your closet! You can do one shelf that is just bugging you or, if you have time, you can do more. It's about doing a little bit at a time.

So, like the days before, I'm going to give you some tips and tricks to help you organize a shelf in your closet. First off, you need to go quickly through everything. If you have a sweater or purse you really don't use, donate it. If it's ripped or stained, toss it. You could put in a pile to fix, but if it's been that way awhile be realistic and get rid of it. The point of this is to get you to get rid of items that you don't need in a short amount of time. 

Organizing Made Fun

If you have purses, here is a great idea that I use. I have inexpensive cardboard boxes {from Ikea} that I cut down to fit in the shelves. I have all my purses stored inside. Go HERE to see more. You can also simply just line them up, like below, or set up on a shelf. 


Or, if you have sweaters that you fold and keep on your shelves, try putting them in some sort of color order or by sleeve length. Do what makes sense to YOU! It's your closet!


If you have something to divide them in or dividers, that will help them from falling over, but if you are doing something quickly and want to achieve neatness, this will work will. Think about a future purchase of a shelf divider like this.

Last, if you keep miscellaneous things on your shelves, here is the last idea - use boxes that will hold miscellaneous things, set things up neatly or make a pretty area to get ready.
