Randi’s Closet Makeover – Part Two

On New Years Eve, Randi and I tackled the Great Closet Organization Project. We took Julie’s advice she gave on my last blog and went through everything to make sure it was really needed. Using Rubbermaid totes, Randi and I sorted and had her sort everything in the closet into 4 piles:

  1. Donate
  2. Mend or Repair
  3. Throw Away and
  4. Keep


The exercise really helped eliminate some un-needed items we could give to local Charlotte charities and also let Randi know what exactly what was going back into the closet so it was easy to find.

Also, we took Julie’s advice on using underbed boxes. We were able to fit 2 under her guest bed – – one for Christmas decorations and a second for backpacks. Because Randi uses that closet as a seasonal / utilitarian closet, some additional holiday items ended up on the floor of the closet.


Stay posted next week for the final result!!

    Great job, Lauren! If you and Randi really want to go the distance, consider doing a little inventory of the holiday stuff being tucked away. You don’t even need to write it down…just take a digital photo of each bin before it’s put away, and store that on the computer with other holiday-related files (shopping lists, recipes, etc.). I bet Randi’s going to love that closet, now!
