So, I nipped over to the housewares department at Walmart and for something like $7.98, I got an over-the-door shoe pocket organizer...and it transformed the coat closet almost instantaneously. First, the "before" pictures:
|Running stuff, which was all muddled together in a bag or |
tossed on the kitchen table
|Crap on the top shelf (box of more stuff fit in that gap on the right, |
and is shown below)
|A bunch of cold-weather gear was shoved in a box, and Spencer's|
scarves were bundled together. Have you noticed that at least one
in every set of my household pictures must include at least one cat?
A total of maybe 10 minutes of sorting, rolling, and tucking produced the lovely "after" pictures:
My running bag now has only my essentials in it; that blue plastic box is all emptied and tucked away in storage; Spencer and my's scarves are readily available. I love opening that closet now! What a difference that simple organizer made.
