Day 1: Your Wardrobe
I'm very lucky in that my apartment has fairly large built-in cupboards (yay!), so plenty of shelving and hanging space (although, more hanging space will always be nice!).
Shelved half - the shelves are awesomely deep, so I can comfortably fit a double row of folded clothes. You can't really see on the top shelf of clothing, but there's a slightly better angle on the bottom shelf... Plus, built-in drawers! Oh, and the topmost shelf is a double row of various things: mostly out-of-season clothes (back row), but also hats, handbags, gym clothes, etc (nicely organised and colour coded). In an attempt to have a nice minimalistic room, I've also set aside one of the shelves in my wardrobe for things I would normally put out on a dresser or top of chest of drawers: jewelry, fragrance, sunglasses and so on.
Hanging side... Mostly jeans, dresses and jackets/coats, plus the shoes I have in Stellenbosch (I still have some in my room at my parent's house, so I think I might have to get a box for under my bed for the overflow). Plus more organisation at the top: everything has a box! (I'm very proud of my organisation. It's a New Year's Resolution that I actually carried through!)
We're not allowed to stick/hang anything on the walls of our apartment, but the inside of the wardrobe doors is fair game! (Yes, I was a true blonde at first!)
A quick glance reveals my colour scheme! Grey and purple FTW :)
My shelf-of-everything! Jewelry doll for delicate necklaces/chains, a beaded wire basket for headbands and Alice bands, nail polishes / fragrances, my tiara (!), a red clutch with all my hair elastics and bobby pins, a re-purposed tea box for organised bracelets and earrings, sunglasses all lined up, and a mini chest-of-drawers for necklaces organised by colour.
A closer look at the tea box (again, purple is in the majority, here...).
I'll save a photo of my underwear drawer, but the lower drawer has socks, gloves, scarves, belts and so on (and an alarming large number of pairs of black tights, most of which I think have ladders... a job for the next organizing spree...). Again with the "a place for everything and everything in it's place" philosophy, I got these handy interlocking polypropylene drawer dividers for quite cheap, but they are brilliant at keeping everything easily accessible (so no more digging around in a big drawer for that one pair of purple gloves...).
