Closet Organization - Update 2

I am very happy to say that I am FINISHED my closet organization challenge.  I still have a few things I need to tweak, but for the most part I love my closet. 

My next challenge after organizing my shoes was going through all of my boxes above my closet (I was really scared about what I would find).  Overall I threw away and donated a ton! I am sure the local donation bin is thankful.

Here is another dreaded before picture (looking at it now I cant believe I let it get this bad).
 The one thing that really helped was buying 9 of the same storage containers.  I placed these above my closet to store things that I don't use everyday.  I also made labels using The 3AM Teacher's free labels.   I just love these labels.  I made sure they were really big so that I don't have to squint when I am looking for things.  I also used sweetie pie font from Kevin and Amanda. 




 Lastly, I found this quote wall talk at a boutique in Fernie.  I thought it was perfect for my closet.  It is a great reminder that I need to keep my life simple (and organized). 

If you havent checked out my giveaway, go now!!! It ends on Saturday, so you have a few days left!
