I have two dressers, one tall and one smaller one. They are the ones that match our furniture set and all my fold-able clothes are in those. Darling Husband has one tall dresser that is in our closet. We have a walk-in closet (not very big), so his dresser is on one wall, and then he has shelves above that for some t-shirts. All his work shirts go along one wall, hanging, and I have one wall for my nice clothes. I have some shelves on the floor that I store my shoes on + sweatshirts & purses. Everything fits for the most part.

Get rid of a lot of stuff that neither one of you don’t wear.

We got a TARDIS.

No, honestly, we both got rid of a bunch of stuff when we moved in together. Our rule was if we couldn’t remember the last time we’d worn it or it hadn’t been worn in a few months then it went out. We got rid of so many clothes that way and we now have enough room. 

I also bought hanging organizers. Shoes and purses are my biggest problems, so I bought a shoe organizer that goes on the door and one that hangs or my purses. Also, space saver bags and totes.  we bought three clear plastic totes and some space saver bags for bulky stuff like coats and extra blankets. We stuck them in the bags, sucked them down and then stored them away. Now we don’t have extra blankets and big stuff taking up closet space. We have a long, narrow walk in closet by the way, so it’s not like we didn’t have room, but before FH moved in it was filled was my stuff with no organization at all.

Charity shops! We’re in a 700 sq ft flat as well, and there just isn’t room to keep stuff we haven’t worn at all in the past year. We go through our stuff and purge every summer, so everything fits into one wardrobe, chest of drawers, and a suitcase (for out of season clothes) under the bed.

We installed Rubbermaid Configurations closet systems into our 2 master closets. But we’re going to have custom organizers made soon. We also have a tall boy chest, so overall we have tons of space. It also helped that before we moved, we donated any clothing that we didn’t wear or need, so that freed up some space too.

pinterest and ikea… and lots of minimizing our closet… It was really great for us to go through what we have a donate what we don’t use.  We live in the north where houses are old, and closet space is minimal.  It took a lot of work, but we finally got a system worked out 🙂  Good luck!

He gets half the long dresser, the top shelf in the closet and ten hangers. I get the tall and the other half of the long dresser and the rest of the closet. And the storage unit and the bottom of the closet and a hamper for shoes. And a dresser at my mom’s house. And my back seat and trunk. Yeah, I have a lot of stuff lol.
