I wanted to post pictures of my closet, in case some of you were getting the idea that I’ve got some sort of glamorous set up going on.
That is not the case. This is real life. This is my closet.
It is small (I share half of it with my husband) and cramped.
My ginormous shoe collection is shoved into one shoe rack and a box. I also have a box that slides under my bed for boots, as well as the ones I wear most frequently at the top of my closet. My purses or rather large “mom bags” are precariously stacked on one another in a sideways milk carton.
I organize by skirts, shirts and dresses, but other than that it’s just stuck in where there’s space (see how the bar is bending…it was that way before we bought the house, but I’m sure I didn’t help it any). I also have my belts hanging on a nail on both sides of the closet.
My accessories are organized into chunky necklaces, delicate necklaces (kept in baggies to preserve them), rings, bracelets and earrings.
My foldable items are stuffed into two drawers (shirts and pants). If you could see the bottom of the shirt drawer, you’d see that it’s busted out from holding all of that weight.
And that’s what I work with every day. I try to go through it often to get rid of things I don’t use to make more space.
I have seen Sex & the City the movie and I would take the closet Mr. Big gave Carrie over a diamond ring any day because that closet was a thing of beauty. Someday I will have more space, but for now I am thankful for the space I do have.
What’s in your closet?
Happy Friday! 🙂
