This is the first time that I've actually lived in a house that has an extra hall closet. When I lived at home, the only closet in the small hall that we had was our linen and movie closet. Coats and jackets were hung on the hooks by the door. Shoes were lined up along the base board just so that we wouldn't trip over them. So, when we moved into our new house in South Carolina, I just shoved a whole lotta coats and mess in there and closed the door.
However, I feel as if it's time for me to figure this particular area of my house out and do something useful with he space that I have.
Introducing the hall closet...
The view of the top section. Diaper boxes holding who knows what...hats, scarfs, I don't know?
Back to the closet. I took everything out. Piled up the sweatshirts and coats that we don't wear anymore to take to Goodwill. I dumped the boxes out and figured out what was in there. I was right by the way. Lot's of Mike's hat and beanies. I sorted them and put them all in one box. Now he can take his hat off and put it directly back in the closet (and he has been too thanks to our little challenge).
I picked up some of those removable hooks, I think they're Scotch Command hooks? I put two on the door so I would have creating spot to place my purse and my church bag. Thus keeping me from dangling them off of a dining room chair. *smile*
The boxes go like this from left to right:
1- Random Stuff: things that I put away at the end of the day.
2- Grocery bags: self explanatory
3- Hats: Mike's hat, our beanies, scarfs, etc.
The jackets are one's that we are using now because it's fa-reeeeeeezing outside!!!!
1- Blue: I take this one when we go somewhere for a good while. All day trips where I need to pack lunch for the girls and plenty of snacks.
2- Green damask: I use this one every day. It usually hangs out in the car, but in the case it comes inside, it'll sit under the blue one.
The girls have their own little blue box for their shoes. Only because they get lost so easily.
On a different subject, it's 1:30 and my girlie's are still snoozing...woo hoo! No, not really. I have this motherly instinct that tells me a mean little bug is soon to make it's home here. The sleet and rain isn't helping I'm sure. Time to go wake them up, sadly enough. Sweet luvins to all you amazing readers out there! You're the best!
Have a great day!
