High Heels and Training Wheels: Easy (Obvious) Closet Storage
Easy (Obvious) Closet Storage
You ever have one of those "duh" moments? You know, where a thought occurs to you that is so simple and so obvious you think "Duh! Why the hell didn't I think of that before??" Nothing like one of these moments to make you feel like an idiot. This particular epic moment was brought to you by my daughter. Sometimes you just need a 5-year-old to point out your stupidity.
This obvious idea involved my closet and although it is indeed obvious, these oversights happen to the best of us and I thought I'd share so I can make you feel like an idiot too! You're welcome.
Scarves! These were the bane of my organizing existence. They were all draped on this poor hanger and it looked a hot mess....not that the rest of my overloaded closet looks much better, but these were worse! Not to mention how difficult it was to get to each one. Of course, the one I need is always on the bottom!
Then my little Iz was playing with a scarf and a shower curtain hook (it takes little to please her) and bam. My epic "duh" moment. We have these pretty schnazzy hooks from Target that have just been sitting around collecting dust because....well, I don't know why. But now they have a purpose!
So then it got me thinking about what other things I could hang because I was on a hanging roll and I found these 'S' hooks chillin in the garage.
Bam! Now they're jewelry hangers. Better the giant tangled ball all my necklaces used to be in! Fo sho! I would like to get more of each so I can hang more scarves and divide my necklaces more, but at least now the thought has occurred to me!
Now if only I had better storage for my shoes...
Any suggestions? Other than getting rid of them! I know what you were thinking smarty pants! My poor husband has already been kicked out to the hallway closet. He's a good sport but pretty soon I'm going to be invading his second-hand space if I don't find a more efficient solution. I already have all of my winter things hanging on an exposed water pipe in the laundry room. Probably not good for the sewage movement (ew).
Well, I don't have everything figured out but at least my scarves have a new home! Until next time...
