After sitting on my ass all summer I decided, 1 week before I started work again, to organize my purses, closets and drawers.
This is an endless feat not to be taken lightly. Once you start 1 mess another creeps up on you. I started with my infinite collection of handbags.
The problem I have is that I don’t know what I have. They’re in my closet, under the bed in boxes and in the attic in Rubbermaid tubs and I still can’t get my hands on everything.
Even after purging my closets I still have a lot of shit – good shit (because I do throw the old and tattered out). Now I’m in the process of putting it all back – and you know how that goes… there are always a few parts leftover!
Next I tackled, or tried to tackle the sock/stocking drawers. Since thigh high socks are in this season I separated them from the massive ball of nylon and spandex and I folded them neatly into a drawer that was not using
space wisely. I’ll deal with the rest of them another day.
Then I moved on to the lingerie consisting of panties, bras, corsets, garter belts and Spanx. No easy task. Only time will tell how well I did.
My dress/gown closet was a toughie. I still haven’t managed to fit all the pieces back! My shirt closet multiplied into shirt closets and I still need more space!
Finally I straightened out my scarves, gloves (naughty and nice ones), hats, various shoe cushions paraphernalia. This was an easy one – but why are all “the good ones” Dry Clean Only?
I still have a long way to go but I’m confident that I can make it work.
Now only if I can get into my sizes 6 & 4 again…. I’m overwhelmed storing sizes 4-10!
