In Desperate Need of Organization

I try and keep my house clean and tidy, and considering that I have a two year old running around, I think I do a pretty good job of it. However, there are definitely a couple of areas in my house that could definitely benefit from some attention.

The Hall Closet
Full of coats and winter gear, this closet still has summer items mingling with the winter ones. I never seem to get around to putting the out of season items away and now there's just one big mess in the closet. It's all topped off with a bunch of the hubby's damn ball caps. What is it with men and ball caps anyway?

Bedroom Closets
Yes, all of them. The spare bedroom closet is full of scrap booking supplies, a box that I still haven't unpacked, a box of clothes that's too small for the little guy and just about anything else I need to shove out of sight.

The little guy's closet has clothes, of course, either too big, just right and too small. I really need to get that sorted through again. And, it also holds lots of stuffed animals - too many stuffed animals.

The master bedroom closet is the absolute worst. I cringe at the thought of trying to do something with it....but it has to be done. Clothes that just has to go, personal papers in disarray, books, cosmetics, shoes....Yes, my closet is in complete chaos.

The Junk Cupboard
Most kitchens have a junk drawer, well I have a whole cupboard dedicated to the junk I absently collect. It's not that I have so much cabinet space that the junk can have a whole cubbie all to its own, I'm just lazy and don't really want to deal with it.

So that's it, I've put my housekeeping horror out there and I'm hoping that this is the motivation I need to get my ass in gear and straighten it out.

Funny that your only messy areas are closets that nobody can see :)
I have the infamous junk drawer.

For the kidlets clothes, I always have a bin/box in storage with easy soon as she grows out of something, I put it in the bin. She has so much clothes and grows so quickly I found this the easiest solution. Otherwise, if you find any way to organize your closets, please pass it along. I need help in that area too!
