Okay Moms, do your kids' closets look like this?

I have 2 boys sharing this closet.  They both change their clothes about 10 times a day!  I got sick of cleaning it up and have it look like this again 10 minutes later.  Then to have my neat-freak husband come home from work and freak out!   
So a couple of weekends ago I went for the closet organizer.  I had my kids come with me to the big box store, climb up on the display and kick the tires for me.  Oh...they loved that!  We found the Rubbermaid closet organizer would probably hold up the best and it looked easy enough for me to install myself. 
After one sleepless night and rearranging every drawer and every shelf about 10 times, this is what I came up with.  And this is what it looks like 2 weeks later! 

Ahhh, sweet success.
The first couple of days I just wanted to sit in their room and look at it.  It took 3 trips to the store for hangers since we didn't have any, but every lick of clothing they own is in there.  I even had room at the bottom for 3 of the bins to hold some toys.
It's amazing!  They only get out the shirt they're looking for.  No more tearing the drawers apart looking for the shirt that looks like Vinnie's from "The Sandlot". 

Now..for the rest of the house.
I WILL conquer the closet at a time.
