Couple things that were driving me crazy about this closet:
1) It’s the only place that I have to store extra home decor which always makes it look like a cluttered mess. I don’t handle clutter well.
2) THE HANGERS! I began hating my big brown hangers two weeks after I bought them. They took up SO much room and they were total dust collectors. I don’t handle dust well either. I was running out of room and couldn’t squeeze one more shirt in this closet. Kenny’s solution was to buy less clothes. Silly man. My solution (the right and only solution) was to buy new hangers.
After researching a variety of hangers I finally decided to get these Huggable Hangers because my main goal was to save space. I bought these at The Container Store, but you can also find them at Target. My Target didn’t have the grey ones and I wanted grey. I also wanted an excuse to go to The Container Store. :) They aren’t too expensive ($1 a hanger so $10 for a pack of ten) but when you are buying over 200 hangers it gets a bit costly! I justified this little purchase to my husband by swearing that these hangers are coming with us to the new house and I won’t buy new hangers again for a long time. And let me tell you – I really meant it! I LOVE these hangers! LOVE LOVE LOVE them. Nothing slips off of them, they are so thin and lightweight, and they seriously doubled my closet space!!
Up high and away from little hands!
Some of my shoes are located in our little make-shift mudroom in the garage, but most of them stay in the closet. Lined up nice and neat until a certain someone gets her hands on them…
Kenny’s clothes got a makeover too. :) I organized all of his slacks, dress shirts, collared shirts, and long sleeved shirts together.
