I am sick to death of the way my walk-in closet looks these days. It has become this cluttered, disorganized mess that is no longer functional. It’s basically just another place to store and throw things because of lack of space. So instead of being able to walk in and quickly pick out my outfit for the day, I’m wasting time just trying to find what I need or re-stacking things because what I want is underneath a pile of something else. It’s really becoming a headache.
It’s not like I can blame all the clutter on my hubby either. I wish I could LOL. But the reality is my stuff takes up about 75% of our closet, if not more. My hubby has a little tiny piece of real estate and I feel like I’m squashing him out. Not that he really needs much more space for what he has, which is basically a pair of pants LOL! But really, trying to see our closet through the eyes of my man makes me hope he doesn’t curse me under his breath.
I’m gonna share some pics of my space so you can see what I’m dealing with and please don’t embarrass me more by leaving comments about the mess or …stuff like “that poor, poor man”. Just pretend like you don’t see my side 😀 “Nothing to see here…move along people” I know it’s ridiculous, that’s why I’m fixing it.
So here’s the culprit
As you can see it’s quite full. I have plastic totes full of clothes, plastic modular drawers full of purses, a metal shelving unit holding half of my jewelry, keepsakes and more baskets full of stuff. Underneath that is shoes. Next, I have another plastic zippered bag full of heels. Then, I have my shelves stacked with shoe boxes (all full), baskets for my headscarves and tank tops. Oh and as you will see, hubby actually has spaces in between his hangers, on his side LOL!!! He is seriously firm on NOT relinquishing an inch of his real estate over there. That Bum!
Oh There’s More
That mountain of boxes is all his. Well ours….it’s our music equipment boxes, but he insists on keeping them. As you can see here, the hubster has 2 shirts and 1 pair of pants so he should be more than happy to lend his wife half of his space. I mean any hubby that REALLY loves his wife wouldn’t mind sacrificing some space to make her happy right? (in case he’s reading this)
And Just When You Thought I Was Done…More
Even my wall space is occupied (at least on my side it is). I don’t have anything behind my door, but I do have a clothes rack and a plus size mannequin taking up the middle, you know, the walk in part of the walk in closet LOL!! (In case you’re wondering why, I used to own a resale shop hence the mannequin).
Ladies, I hope I don’t get so pissed off during this process, that I give up. I mean just the thought of having to take everything out of there to re-organize has already caused me agita.
I think my next move is going to be taking a trip the The Container Store to see what I can get to help me out of this disorganized chaos of a closet. But until then, I’ll be pinning my dream closets & some DIY closet organizing tips, in case somebody else out there is going through the same thing. Plus I can use all the inspiration I can get! I’ll keep you posted on my progress and let you in on any solutions I find.
Are You Doing Any Cleaning/Reorganizing For Fall?
