EASY Master Closet Makeover...I'm talking NO tools needed!



As most of you know a couple weeks ago I got so sick and tired of my crazy disaster of a master closet I decided to take on organizing it....however not just cleaning it out.  I needed to come up with a better closet system for my husband and I.  

Originally I thought "Hey, I'll take down all these rods and buy a closet system that drills into the wall...and it will be so fun and easy!"

HAHAHAHAHA.  Yeaaaaaa right! Those bad boys are expensive and who is kidding who here I can barely use a drill.  SO then I decided to look for simple closet systems that would solve the issues we had in our closet.  Which were:

1. Shoes
2. Purses
3. Hats

These three issues were what really dragged it down and made it look like a hurricane swept through.  You can take a look at the "BEFORE" pics below as long as you promise not to judge!  I originally told you all I wasn't going to share my "befores" but a lot of you got a little angry at me..and you were totally right.  Sometimes we just have to share the ugly truth to appreciate the after.  Even as simple as it may be.  

BEFORE:

The view in from our bathroom...less than desirable. LOL

Not sure what is even happening here.  That small shelf is just sort of where I "toss" stuff.

Our incredibly organized hats....and each morning I scramble through them all knocking them down and throwing them back up there.  Very ideal-----> (Insert Sarcasm)

Oh yes, the pile of shoes.  My organized chaos.



To solve our three main issues I first began looking and comparing prices online for Closetmaid Systems.

I found this awesome and affordable shelf system that attaches right to your existing rod for around $60!!! Plus it shipped FAST and FREE!

I figured this system would fix my shelving issue for my purses and I wouldn't lose any of my hanging rod space.  Best part is this goes together in 10 minutes with no tools!










In the picture above you can see how I solved another issue we had...shoes.  I got two expandable shoe racks from Walmart for ....wait for it....$13!!  Each rack can hold up to twenty pairs of shoes!

Below is my rack which is on the opposite side of the wall.


Now I will say this..these are not the sturdiest racks.  They also have wood options that I am sure are better quality.  For our shoe issue though I really just needed somewhere to put the shoes we don't use much.  All the shoes we use daily (like sneakers and flip flops) are in our front foyer closet.  These racks probably wouldn't last long if I was taking shoes on and off them multiple times a day.  


Having a designated place for purses and hats opened up my two smaller upper shelves and I was able to fold some of our "less used" clothes instead of using them as a tossing ground for anything and everything.




This whole project cost me under $80 you guys! It may not seem like it was a huge transformation but it was exactly what we needed!  I used zero tools and caused zero damage! LOL :)

Neutrals by BEHR Paint

I've been working on a project for the past two weeks and what always seems to be the most challenging part is choosing paint colors.  I have been wanting to find a nice neutral that isn't too "Gray" and isn't too "Beige" but not too white either. I personally like the look of white walls in pictures but in reality I'm not a huge fan.  Also, I like to see a contrast between painted walls and white trim.  Each time I look over on Pinterest for inspiration I find lots of suggestions for other paint brands..but I'm a BEHR girl :)  We spend so much time at Home Depot it just makes more sense for us.  That being said I decided to share with all of you my suggestions for finding the perfect "light Greige" by BEHR Paints!  


To start off with here are three options that are lighter/cooler but will still show a nice contrast next to white.

1. Drizzle


2. Sterling

3. Halation

These three options are also a "light greige" but a tad smidge more …

My first attempt at "Meal Planning".....

Okay friends ...well the vote was basically unanimous..97% of you voted "YES" to an easy low carb based meal prepping plan for the week.  So here we are! I say "low carb based" because there are a few carbs as well as some berries.  However the intake is still very low and definitely in an approved amount for any low carb diet.  
A few things to mention... I did not have the containers and like I mentioned in my stories Monday morning I did not have time to head to Target, Walmart or wait for Amazon delivery so I purchased mine at Publix the same day I shopped.  They were very inexpensive anyways so it worked out fine.  I got two sizes of containers (entree and soup/salad) and I also ended up using some of my existing tupperware. 
The four entrees that I made for the week (I can rotate them for lunches and dinners) do not contain any chicken.  This is because I personally don't like the taste of reheated chicken.  If you do then definitely substitute out some of t…
