Simplifying for Sanity Room 2

Well-I have too many bedrooms with two many closets that all need to be done (again) so I had to choose this week what to do and none of them were going to be as easy as my living room was-so toss a coin and Alyssa's room won because we have lived here 4 years now and she wants to paint it from pink to purple.
So while at Dallas this last week for 2 days (at Six Flags,) we went shopping to get new bedding to match the new wall color.  We were hoping to paint over Spring Break-that didn't happen (so I will have to post pictures of that later) but we did clean really good so that we can now move stuff out to paint and change the bedding (which also did not happen cause we haven't painted yet-oh well!)

So here is my almost teen daughter's closet before! (Boy she is not an organizer in any form or fashion)
And here is the closet and many hours of sorting, throwing and cleaning.
I forgot to take before shots of her actual room because at first we were just going to do her closet that day, but it starting raining and it was cold and we weren't going anywhere so we continued on the room as well so we can paint hopefully this weekend.  So believe me when I say the room looked as bad as the first shot of the closet did. Except 4 inches of West Texas Dust on everything as well!
So here are pictures of the room after we cleaned and dusted-but before the new paint job and bedding-soon to come.
I then got motivated to go to my closet like thing in my master bathroom that holds my hair products and make up and lotions and necklaces and all sorts of things I need in the bathroom but don't know where else to put them. After looking at this photo I decided I must say:
My Name is Jill Jones and I am addicted to hair products and makeup!

The before shot.  
Look at all those bottles of hair product-you would think with all that I would have some great looking hair! lol  Some of it is for my daughter Alyssa too who has really long curly hair and we are always buying and trying new stuff for her hair-lots of time not liking what we bought but I can't bring myself to throw it out so we keep it and use it anyways.

The after shot.
A little better-I did fix all my necklaces and I cleaned out a drawer in my dresser and stuck those up in here hanging like they are supposed to be and I did throw out some of the hair product that we haven't used in a long time and I did throw out some makeup and reorganized my stuff left in the bags and containers and baskets in there.  Somewhat better-inch by inch, life's a sinch-Yard by yard, life is hard.

I started to tackle one of the boys closets and ran out of steam so I will have to post that another day.  The piles I started are still on the floor tonight.

Happy Simplifying!
