I've been hit by the organizing bug.
With baseball behind us, I feel the need to purge...like giving my closet an enema kinda purging. Free it of all unused items, and make it user friendly. Why after baseball you ask? When baseball season lingers on all summer long, the house goes to pot. Blogging gets tossed to the wayside...you see the pattern;-) By the time it's over, I feel the need to wipe the slate clean, organize something and slap some paint on. This years project...our closet. I would show you the before, but it's too scary, so when it's finished, I'll post the after. The before....just picture a walk-in closet with the classic rod down each side, with 2x4 shelving. Not poking fun at the craftsmanship, it was the thing back 17 years ago. And has worked very well, I might add. You may ask...if it ain't broke, why fix it?
Two words.... closet maid!
I'm still an old-school kinda girl so when I saw this........
I had to order one. I found this one at amazon.com....on $12 bucks! It will be perfect to hang handbags, ties, belts, scarves, etc. That way we will still have a touch of old school with the new.
I just had a funny thought. Hubby and I have had some senior moments here lately;-) So, we've been coming up with, "you know you are old when....." statements. For example, we went rafting over the weekend and was so sore the next day, we could barley walk. We were sitting at the table drinking coffee, me a watered, sweetened version of coffee, and hubby looks over at me and says, "you know you are old when you are sore from rafting and having to put fiber in your coffee." I add today, "you know you are old when you get all excited over a expandable coat rack and closet maid."
