Hall Closet Re-Vamp!

It's time for a little more organization around my house! I have had a great time reading about different ideas from other bloggers! You all really do have a great big ole creative side!! I'm also very happy that my last organization post was so well liked by fellow bloggers!

Today's post isn't as grand and snazzy, but it has to do with a small space, and I think that a little organization goes a long way when you need to store multiple items! I did a "before" and "after" of my medicine/body wash/catch-all shelf in my hall closet. It was really a disaster before I got started in there! I threw a lot of things out that were expired which is always a plus and made me feel much better about what I have on hand! 

This is the "before" picture. If you notice, there is an empty spot on the left side of the shelf. This is where I keep small containers filled with little odd -n- end items. I have all my band-aids in one and all of our medical tape, Gauls, wraps, and patches in the other, and then I have one that is empty which works great for holding things I may use up quickly but not need out in the open.

The rest of the items in here are just shoved around and a hot mess! We just "scoot" things our of our way to get to what we need! I knew I needed to clean this space out to hold my new body washes I picked up at Bath and Body Works for my birthday! As it sits in this picture, that wasn't happening!!

This is my shelf now! It's more organized and functional! You should see all the bottles neatly aligned in the back! I placed the medicines we use on a more routine basis in the front and all extras in the back. You can see my containers on the side in the picture. I love how they stack on the shelf so easily! I also have a round caddy in here full of nail clippers, beauty items and other things that can be easily transported from room to room if needed. It really is a great time saver!

I was real happy with my project once it was completed! I had been putting off doing this for a while. It's always a great feeling to get rid of things that aren't needed anymore and re-vamp your storage area! I think we all can agree on that!

Be sure to leave me a comment and let me know what you have organized in your house this week! I would love some more inspiration for my own house!!!

From my front porch to yours,
