Closet Redux

I'm super excited to partner with Starbucks again this summer to share some great closet upgrade tips and also my love for their Bottled Starbucks® Iced Coffee. You guys know that I have a little Starbucks obsession, right? No joke, I hit gold status by February 1st of this year. #coffeeaddict

A few months ago I had a serious itch for change. Do you ever feel that way? It happens to me about once a year and I'm certain it has to do with the fact that from ages 4-21ish we were trained to expect a change every year: a new grade with a new teacher, different friend groups, etc. Once college is over and real life happens, goodbye yearly newness and hello grown-up world. #thestruggleisreal

Anywho, initially I thought deep spring cleaning and some re-organizing might do the trick, but that wasn't enough and I decided to move. With this new place I'm determined to be super organized (it's not really my forte) and enlisted the help of my friend Jen. Jen is one of those people who likes loves organizing; she can walk into any room and point out 5 ways to better utilize the space. The first thing Jen suggested was investing in matching huggable hangers that will provide some unison to my closet + save tons of space.
On Sunday, I attempted an entire hanger overhaul with a little boost from my go-to iced coffee. Ugh speaking of change, my new place is nowhere near a Sbux. Say what? The only good thing is that I fell in love with Bottled Starbucks® Iced Coffee last summer and have stocked my fridge since the move. It tastes almost identical to my typical in-store order: tall in grande iced coffee with milk & sweetener (in case you were wondering)!
All in all it took a little more than an hour and almost 2 Bottled Starbucks® Iced Coffees (don't judge) to do every hanging piece of clothing but the results were so worth it. Everything looks nice and organized, plus there is so much more room for new goodies!

One thing I will say is that it's a bit of an expensive undertaking if you have a lot of clothes. I had to take multiple trips to Tarjay to pick up more hangers because I underestimated how many hanging pieces I actually had. They're also cheaper online than in-store SO if you have patience (unlike me) definitely order online.

Building a new shoe closet soon. Stay tuned! 

Psst... Bottled Starbucks Iced Coffee beverages are the perfect blend of premium Starbucks coffee and 2 percent milk. Available in four delicious offerings: Coffee + Milk, Low Calorie Coffee + Milk, Vanilla, and Caramel, Starbucks Iced Coffee ready-to-drink beverages are the perfect on-the-go refreshment to get you through the daily commute, big projects such as spring cleaning, or an exciting road trip with friends. Look for it at major grocery and convenience stores, available nationwide.

  1. Please! I need to know where you found that hippo! I'm obsessed with hippos and need that one for my collection! :)

  2. Ash, your new place looks amazing! Great job organizing.


  3. where is that fabulous rug from??? and I'm obsessed with the huggable hangers. I re-did my closet 2 years ago and am now moving on to SweetPea's space because they come in so many fun colors! FYI- Costco has the big pack for $10.

    1. I would love to hear where this rug is from as well! So great.

  4. Looks great! SO put together!

  5. Costco has huggable hangers for $15-$20 for a set of 55!!!

    PS: Even though this is a sponsored post, I absolutely love it! Great useful info! And amazing pics of your closet!

  6. I recently swapped all of my plastic hangers out for the felt hangers. I loooove them and they provide much more room in my closet but it takes for-ever to hang stuff! lol or maybe it's just me?!
    I've made like 8 trips to Walmart for the hangers [they have packs of 30 for $13 --best deal I found!]. I didn't like the thought of spending $100+ on hangers so the process was easier as I bought one pack at a time ;D BUT, I still need more...

    Can't wait to see how you organize all of your shoes!
