Now the saddest part... do you see all the WASTED space?? It just kills me. Let me give you a run down of what all is in this closet....
Bottom "floor" space- Fireproof safe
2nd Shelf- Canning jars, handed down kids books, and a few of my nephews toys, old books, leftover cups from my kitchen decorations
3rd Shelf- Shelves bought at an unbelievable steal at a yard sale for the nursery, Christmas wreath that was taken down too late to make it in the Christmas totes that are in the shop, a Brita water filter, candle that sits on my wood burning stove during the winter, and other odd items that got shoved there.
4th Shelf- :( this is my shelf with almost all things school related. I have calculators TI-84 Plus that I got at a conference
5th Shelf- A baseball glove, a pair of coveralls, and a blanket.
So, I know I said I made progress on the closet. And I did... I threw away a Wal-Mart sack full of stuff. I got all the "school" stuff out to take back to school. I moved things around. And I have one picture to share of what progress I did make.
I realized as I worked on the closet that this time of organizing the closet is more about getting rid of stuff to have room to store baby stuff until I have a place for things in the nursery. Another post will be coming soon about the state of the nursery. Then once baby stuff comes home, I will have to organize it again. But that is ok with me because the second time will be easier.
So there is part one, hope you enjoyed.
Any suggestions on how to get better use of the wasted space if Mr. Magnificent won't add shelves for me??
