After I pinched myself and came back to reality, I knew that I didn't have the funds to go out and purchase shelving, baskets, floor storage, or matchy matchy hangers. I did on the other hand, have items in my house that were FREE (I love that word!) and not being utilized. So with pajamas and cape on, Super Mommy committed to OPERATION CLEAN CLOSETS! And may I say, how tickled I am with the end results!
Here is a before picture of Penelope's closet.
And here are the after photos:
I felt an amazing sense of accomplishment after looking at this, and so guess what this little Martha Steward did? I went to the toy closet. That's right. I felt so productive and I wasn't going to stop at just Penelope's closet. Here is a before picture of the toy closet.

Last but not least, is the kitchen pantry. It's a work in progress and I continue to work on it, and I am pleased with it as of today. I would love to get wooden crates, but every time I find them, they seem to be more than I'm willing to pay. Maybe this year at Antique Alley I'll get lucky!
Do you see the dangling label hanging from the bottom left basket? That's my failed attempt at putting labels on my baskets. When you have successfully organized a closet, you should stop there. I got too ahead of myself, and this is what I get, a dangling label!
Scarlett's closet is my next conquest. However, I'll be in my pajamas all day for that showdown!
