So….once again my closet has taken on a life of its own. I really try to keep a handle on it, but between the boxes; the clothes I wear and those for donation; the shoes strewn on the floor; and the general limited space… I think I’m screwed. I clear it up every few months or so, but right now it looks like this… pretty damn bad.
|Shoes, bags, clothes, oh my:(|
I need a more permanent solution, but so far my action has been limited to watching YouTube videos for inspiration, and drooling over $1000 closet systems at Home Depot, but not actually doing anything. I’m hoping that posting this mess will shame me into cleaning it up for a “look-how-far-I’ve-come” video.

I know I should start with the simple step of buying matching slim hangers at Costco… but I tend to have a Costco problem. I go in there for one item, and I come out having spent $100:(

Basically my closet is wide, very wide, about 9feet wide, but it’s only about 3feet deep. It is considered a “walk-in closet”, but the walking inside of it includes stepping in, and then shuffling sideways. And then it’s tall, so there’s lots of wasted spaced up top. Does that make sense. I hope it does… because I need help!! People, what should I do about this?? Motivate me!

P.S. since writing this I have separated the dresses, removed heavy coats and kind of reorganized the purses. I’ve also tried to convince my husband to move the shelving up another 10inches or so, but he hasn’t actually processed the idea. Progress? Still no hangers though.
