Here's the before...
Ugh. That's all I've got for that.
BUT, I have made a little bit of progress. I read on this outstanding blog by a local girl who is a friend of several of my friends and who I've really, really thought about hiring her to save me from losing my mind over the dang closets (but the time people??? when would I have the time???)...anywho, I'm leading you on a wild goose chase for my small nugget of progress... I read on her blog that an easy thing to do is (gasp!) get matching hangers.
I'll admit, I was hesitant. Because, I mean really...
1. we have hangers coming out of our ears and wazoos
2. one of my younger brothers who shall not be named (randall) has matching hangers. The fancy, wooden matching hangers. To hang his fancy polo and j.crew clothes on. And I tease him about this. Fancy hangers, scoff.
But, I did it. Not the wooden ones...omg have you see how much they cost???...but your basic run of the mill black plastic hangers.
And I spent A LOT of time cleaning out my clothes. A LOT. And making a ginormous pile for Goodwill.
So, here is the current state of my side of the closet...
I think I need some baskets (from scarves and belts) and I think I need to spend some time organizing, ahem, my 18 trillion boxes of pictures. But otherwise, I kind of feel like I am on the right track.
