With the second month聽of 2018聽underway, our New Year鈥檚 resolutions are still going strong here at Brit + Co. And for our homes, that鈥檚 meant purging, organizing, organizing, organizing, and more organizing! In this edition of聽Make It Over, we鈥檒l show you how our Brand Partnership Planner, Kristina Elkus,聽transformed her tiny, throw-it-all-in-there closet into a more functional space. Check out how she turned the closet into a v. organized cleaning command center that will keep those clean and organized vibes going all year long.

The Before

After moving in together, Elkus and her boyfriend realized they had a surplus of cleaning supplies. 鈥淲e were able to聽pare down most duplicates 鈥 although I鈥檓 fine having three vacuums, he wasn鈥檛 into it 鈥 but were still struggling with how we could best organize everything,鈥 she says.

鈥淲e were using bins, but it made it hard to know where everything was without being able to see it,鈥 Elkus says.聽That鈥檚 where our closet organization hack came in.

The After

By utilizing hanging shoe storage organizers from Target (one over the door and one hanging), Elkus was able to get rid of all those space-hogging bins and make cleaning supplies easily accessible. All she needed to make it happen were some nails to mount聽the over-the-door organizer聽on the wall and a tension rod for the hanging organizer.

Elkus took advantage of the walls by hanging Command wall hooks and a broom holder to keep her dusters off the floor. She loves that she was able to maximize the wall space and make sure that everything is visible and聽in its聽own designated place.

On how this makeover has affected her day-to-day, Elkus says, 鈥淚t鈥檚 been a total lifesaver. Having one central place for all the cleaning supplies makes it so much easier to get chores done quickly.鈥
