Getting Organized

I recently made a quick stop at the Container Store to find a solution for my scarfs, bags, and shoes that seem to have taken over my bedroom.
I ended up making two purchases. The first was a scarf hanger ($5.99):
My scarfs were currently hanging on a bar in my closet and a few were on my wardrobe rack.
This is the before shot:
Here is the after:
Now they hang in my closet and take up a fraction of the space...LOVE that!
 
My second purchase was a box of 20 clear shoe boxes($33.00).
Here is what my shoe storage currently looks like:
 Shoes and bags all over the place and not very organized.
 I DID already have the under the bed storage so I kept those shoes in there and just focused on getting the rest in order. I found that most of my 5 and 6 inch heels did NOT fit in the boxes, but they DID fit one shoe in each box. Works for me!
Here are my after shots:
Every shoe has a place and I can see them more clearly now. The bags are in better order too as they now have 2 shelves on my old shoe rack.
My walkway is also clearer so now I don't have to worry about tripping or my kids tripping in the middle of the night trying to get to my side of the bed. ;)
What do you think? Do you ever shop at the Container Store. I could spend thousands of dollars in that place!
