I wish I had take more before pictures. The closet was a disaster. Clothes were jammed in. Most of the upper shelf was taken up with shoes. The side shelves were just covered in junk that had been thrown in there over the past couple years (at least ever couple years I do a big cleaning and purging). The worst and most stressful part though was what was hiding under my bed...
After about a week of sitting on my floor untangling and winding yarn in to center pull balls, I finally had it all separated and untangled. The next problem was what to do with it. I wanted to find a way of storing it so I could see what I have and organized it by color. My mom ended up finding these stacking kitchen shelf things, and they seem to be working really well.
By shifting and organizing my shoes and yarn, I was able to clear up a bunch of closet space. this allowed me to get all my winter clothes that were spilling out of my dresser drawers and piled in bags in the other closet, all nicely folded on shelves. I just don't need them all that often, and I hated having them take up drawer space. Moving them out of the drawers allowed me to get all my t-shirts and shorts off hangers and put neatly into drawers. That really helped my closet look neater.
I'm really happy with my room right now. Everything is neat and orderly, and that makes me happy. I still need to tackle that under the stairs closet as it could use some organizing too, but I'm going to put that off a bit long. My bathroom is in pretty serious need of a makeover as well. My dad is supposedly going to make me some shelving for it, so when that's all done, I'll probably post pictures.
