Some Serious Closet Organization – and a $325 Home Goods and Lallitara Tote Giveaway

Hello everyone!  I hope you had a great weekend.  Mine was amazing… well if you consider cleaning out your closet amazing.  I must admit it is a job I put off but once I finally got going on it on Saturday I managed to shed a quick 50 pounds of clothing in only a few hours.  My purge resulted in a wardrobe reduction of about 50% – I went from two full dressers and two closet rows full of clothing down to one dresser and one closet row!  What a satisfying few hours.  I wish there was a diet plan out there that could provide the same speedy results.

 Now that the clothing has been purged it is time to come up with some new organizing solutions… so I thought I would share some inspiring closet organizing ideas with you today.
