making progress…

remember last week when i told you about the organization project i was starting? i made some AWESOME progress on it last night! 🙂 i tackled my closet + dresser, which i think were the two places that definitely had the most to get rid of.

you can see the before photos here.

and my closet after:


right side of closet


left side of closet

i literally took everything out of the closet, and went through it item by item, only putting things back in my closet that i definitely want to keep, still wear, and that currently fits me. i was very strict and i got rid of a LOT of stuff!

then when i put everything pack in the closet i divided it into clothes i wear on a day-to-day basis on the left side. summer clothes and dress clothes went on the right side. doesn’t it look better?


then i tackled the back of my door. i put away all of my sweatshirts, got rid of some bags, folded my scarves, and made the back of my door a place for hats, bags, and my fuzzy robe. 🙂


finally, the dresser. there were two clothing categories that i really knew i had to pare down on: undies + t-shirts. i emptied each drawer one by one.

and dumped it on my bed

and then chose which things to keep!

the finished dresser!


i got rid of SO MUCH STUFF! now i just need to pack it all up and bring it to goodwill…

to be donated


to be tossed


i feel much better now that i’ve tackled that huge project! 🙂

i’m quickly blogging and working at starbucks for a couple hours.

then i’m heading down to st. louis for the weekend again! tomorrow is my birthday and the packers play the bears on sunday, so it’s a big weekend! 🙂

what’s your drink of choice at starbucks?

i always get a skinny latte – today i got vanilla! 🙂

      mmm, i used to order chai tea lattes, but would ask them to use apple cider instead of milk. it was a delicious spicy treat! i haven’t had that in a really long time.

  3. Yum I could totally go for apple cider right now! Coffee will have to do! =)

    It looks GREAT! and will be super easy for you to find things! Hooray!
