Well, I was beginning to become overly embarassed by my previous picture of my closet, so I kicked it into gear this morning. I think some of you were deceived that this closet is just mine. Oh no, it's his too. However, he doesn't really take up much space. I truly believe that if one woman can't get her clothes into a closet this size, she has one of two problems: 1. She doesn't get rid of her old clothes often enough. 2. She buys way too many clothes.
One of my favorite purchases ever is the wooden hangers. Right now my husband has all of them so his clothes don't droop. I bought these at Ikea. They were @ $3.00 for 10 of them. You just can't go wrong at that price. The only problem is that I live 2 hours away from Ikea. Hmm...I just counted that I need about 90 more. I just typed 5 simple sentences in a row. My writing skills are lacking. (Make that 7 simple sentences.) Looks like a trip to Ikea may be in my future, but I have to make it through this darn spending freeze first!
I don't know what to do about shoe storage, but this seems to work best for me. All my "out-of-season" shoes are kept here, and my "in-season" shoes are in my mudroom closet. I plan on taking pictures of the shoes inside and attaching it to the container. What do you do with your shoes?
I tagged the bins and put miscellaneous stuff that just doesn't sit well in a closet. For instance, swimsuits that just don't stay in place and baseball caps that are an eyesore!
So there it is. I'm purging clothes, washing clothes, folding clothes--I'm sick of clothes! This will be my biggest summer project, and I can't wait for it to be done! Thanks for your patience in the reveal. I'll have some more fun stuff coming up.
