New Year’s Organization

I have a lot of things to keep in a single room. This means I have to keep my things well-organized so I can find anything. It’s a good thing I have a minor addiction to Ikea, both the food and the furniture. Well, probably not good that I am addicted to their food…

Anyway, thanks to Ikea I can fit all of my clothes into my closet, and I have a separate space for most of my shoes. You see, my closet doesn’t have drawers, only shelves. I managed to turn those shelves into drawers using the Skubb boxes of different sizes:

Don’t mind the multi-colored labels hanging awkwardly off the boxes. Those are just temporary until I remember to get my actual label maker. As you can see, I’ve also got my boots stacked on the bottom shelf and a shelf in the middle for makeup, hair stuff, and my bathroom caddy. Plus a little mirror, because I get ready in my closet in the morning. Trust me, much easier than sharing the bathroom mirror with a four-year-old who takes twenty minutes to brush his teeth because he spends nineteen of them making faces into the mirror.

I also have some drawer organizers holding my socks and underwear. They stack really well, and all i have to do is reach in from the side to grab anything. Which is good because they are on a shelf above my head.

I also have the buckets meant to go on the Grundtal bars hanging on the…whatever that thing is. I think it’s a tie rack? But it might have also been for shoes. Feel free to enlighten me in the comments, because I just don’t have a clue. All I know is my buckets hang perfectly to keep things out of reach of little hands. At least when I have the door closed. If I leave it open, I can’t find my keys because they get thrown somewhere into the closet.

Last but not least we have my newest addition, the Ikea PS Wardrobe that was on sale last week when I bought it.

I have most of my shoes grouped together into the shoe boxes, along with socks, slippers, and flip-flops in the short shelves at the bottom of the Skubb organizer. I had intended on hanging it in the closet, but that didn’t work out. Good thing it didn’t, though. Now I can just pull out a pair of shoes and sit on my bed to put them on my feet. I also had a bit of space to stick my keyboard and its stand next to the shoes. Multipurpose wardrobe!
