Teen Closet Organization.
During the summer and before school begins for the new year is a great time to clean, purge, and re-organize closets. In June, I actually hired The Amandas (www.theamandas.com) to come in and install a new closet for my daughter.
As some of you may already know, I have a very busy thirteen year-old who is in cheer, dance, dance competition team, piano, volleyball, and cross country. With all that going on she needed a system to help her to be as organized and efficient as possible. And let me tell you the difference is amazing.

And here is the After picture:
The Amandas installed a closet system from Organized Living that is fully adjustable and customizable. If you have the opportunity to work with them I highly recommend them.
Work in process:
My favorite part of the new system is the labeled storage bins. The Bins were also purchased from and customized by the Amandas. The bins really are crucial in staying on top of everything and knowing exactly where she needs to put things. We have the following bins:
The system also includes 2 drawers and a roll-in and out hamper.
My daughter really does a good job of not keeping old clothes and such, so the purging process only took about an hour or two. Everything now, however, is sorted, and color-coded. Matching hangers from Bed Bath & Beyond top it all off.
