Are your closets organized? Ours are not. We spent half an hour this morning looking for a shoe that my wife could not find. This was not a fun experience for me. I have decided to spend a few bucks to get a good closet organizer something like this sooner rather than later.
Look, I get the frustration in not being able to find what you are looking for when you are in a hurry. Really. I’ve been there and there was actually a day when I could not find shoe number two of a pair I hadn’t worn in a while. The problem is, as a husband, it seems to be my job to get hollered at even when things aren’t my fault. SO…I have decided to dip into the family funds, devote a day or so, and start getting our closets organized. OK… It might be more than a one day deal, but it will be worth it to not go through the stress of trying to find lost articles of clothing like we did this morning.
Now this brings us to another consideration. Where the heck are these shoes? My wife lost one and so did I. Did they elope? I mean really. Where the heck do lost articles of clothing go. At the risk of sounding like a Seinfeld routine from the 90s, what’s up with that? Are they happily dancing through fields filled with mismatched socks that went sneaking out of the dryer under the cover of night?
The bright side is, I know that we’ll be better off in the long run if I actually DO take the time to get organized. Of course I’ve been saying the same thing about the garage as well for a few years, but the bedroom closet is much more “in your face” on a daily basis.
Do these organizers work?
Heck yeah they do. My sister has one of these puppies in every closet of her house (or something like it). The challenge for me will be actually using the closet organizer properly. You see, I can be a bit of a stacker. I’ve been known to stack clothing several feet high at times to avoid the trouble of opening a drawer and actually inserting the clothes. I don’t know why. It is a known issue though. They say that recognizing you have a problem is the first step. I definitely have organizational issues. I realize that I could use some tools to help myself. I’ll report back, but for now, at least I’m buying myself some closet organizers that appear to have a lot of potential.
If you have the talent, motivation, and space, you could do something a little over the top like this…
