Project Simplify: Hot Spot #1

Hello everyone! I'm participating in Simple Mom's Project: Simplify (organizing 5 hot spots in 5 weeks). I'm really excited to do it this way because I think a week is a reasonable amount of time to tackle a room/area. This week we organized the wardrobe/closet. Part of the instructions were to try on each piece of clothing and give a true evaluation. This was a little frustrating since I've put on about 5-8 pounds between the miscarriage, the travel/move, and the subsequent sicknesses. Argh! It was quite humbling; I'll just say that. was motivating to get those stubborn pounds off so I can get back into the clothes I have instead of having to buy new ones. I even rediscovered some I forgot I had. (When we unpacked I literally just put clothes wherever there was space, knowing I'd come back to it when time allowed....). It's definitely a God-thing that this was one of the "hot spots".

I had some of my clothes in the wardrobe in the guestroom, some in the one in our bedroom, some in our (hall) closet (yes, we are fortunate to have found a place in England that actually does have a good sized closet!), and the majority in my dresser. When all was done, I was able to get all my clothes out of the guestroom. Fall/winter clothes are in the bedroom wardrobe and dresser, and summer clothes in the closet.

I can't wait to see what I'll be tackling next week. It's not too late to join us....

Here are the results.
This is the before picture to the closet (Eric and my clothes intermingled...with no rhyme or reason):
This is the after. Eric's clothes on the left, mine on the right. (And yes, I am one of the anal ones who puts clothes in color order):
The before of the shoes:
The after. Not too much is different except that I got rid of a couple pairs and put all mine together on the top half, Eric's on the bottom:
