Ever since I was a kid, my room could never stay clean for long.
When I was younger... I just didn't care. Now that I'm older... I desperately desire a room that looks like a West Elm or Restoration Hardware catalog, but that is something that I can never seem to achieve...
One of the reasons that my quests for a clean room fail me is the amount of STUFF I have ( I will refrain from using the other "S" word that my friends use to describe my STUFF).
I love my STUFF. I love jewelery, I love makeup, I love books/magazines, I love accessories.
But perhaps the biggest contribution to my cluttered room is my love of CLOTHES: T-Shirts, Tank Tops, Hoodies, Jeans, Black Pants, Coats, Jackets, Sexy Dresses, Fancy Dresses, Casual Dresses!!!
I LOVE FASHION!
- My ability to find really awesome clothes at really awesome prices (Thanks Consignment Stores and T.J. Maxx) has led to the massive overhaul that is my closet: I have so many clothes that I keep half my clothes at my apartment... and half my clothes at my father's house =T
I never quite realized how much clothing I had.. until I looked into my friends' closets and said, "You don't have a lot of clothes...".
When I found myself repeating this to all my friends... I started to realize that maybe it's not that they lack in clothing... but I have an extreme excess~ O_O
I've been using the Slimline Hangers from Bed, Bath, and Beyond for years now.
I'm like Joan Crawford in Mommie Dearest~ "NO WIRE HANGERS~!"
I hate looking into closets that have all mismatched hangers...
(Yes, I too see the irony that my room is a disaster area but I like to have all matching hangers ...It's the Virgo in me)
The hangers were very useful in creating a semblance of order (even if it was only in my closet) and giving me more space for clothes... but the time had come when these babies weren't cutting it.
It had gotten to the point where I literally had to shove clothes aside in order to fit anything in my closet~ It truly looked like a bomb exploded and there was a massive destruction of clothes everywhere.
I needed help.... What could I do?
I needed something better... so I went to the land of bedding, bathing, and so much more....
Lo and Behold, my eyes came upon a large box of REAL SIMPLE Slimline Hangers with Built-In Hooks.
Now I'd been using Slimline Hangers for years... but these have Hooks and an Accessory Bar!!!
It is the hooks that make the hanger. Now I can hang Clothes on top of each other so that there creates double the space!
I was able to re-organize my closet so that my Black Dresses were together, My colored dresses were together, My Dressy Tops were together, and my Pants were all hanging together in a cascade of Fabulous Fashion Finds!
I showed my friend my wonderful closet and she was impressed enough to say that she wanted the hangers for herself!
So if you too are in need of a Closet Makeover, Get yourself some of these great hangers~ They'll give you much more space, a clean and orderly look, and perhaps a little bit of peace of mind. ;)
AND they don't leave those ugly hanger bumps on the shoulders!
They also carry Slimline Pants Hangers that I love.
Buy them in the bulk box of 50... I know you'd probably never think to spend so much money on hangers.. but Honey, they're worth it!
