|This is completely embarrassing!|
|It get's better, the only reason I am posting these pictures.|
This project required me to totally shift my thinking about my closet. As I revealed in this post, the clutter and disorganization of my closet was spilling over into my dresser and my bedroom floor. I guess, I finally came to the end of my rope. And after the umpteenth... (or umphundreth) time my husband ask were is my..... I finally got the clue. This is NOT working. So I cleaned everything out.
|Hint: most of this stuff did not belong in the closet|
After taking everything out, I purged out things that don't belong in a bedroom closet. Like the sleeping bags that should be with the camping supplies. The box that I thought had videos in it, it did not, it had sewing supplies, garden flags and misc. crafting stuff, most of which I am donated to our church mission yard sale, some did get tossed. Two bags of just my clothes were donated. Woo Hoo! Feeling better already.
Here is the part of my "re-thinking" how to use my closet. When I was younger, I lost more sweaters, blouses, shirts to those old wire hangers. They would poke holes or I would get those "shoulder bumps" were the fabric was stretched out. UGH! So my solution was to put everything in my dresser and I only hung up dresses or dresser clothes. Problem, my dresser ran out of space.
The solution and my light bulb moment: GET BETTER HANGERS... duh.
So I did. Oh, I also got a sweater organizer similar to this one:
Here is the AFTER:
Well, there it is! It's not perfect but it sure is a ALOT better and I am enjoying my new system.
