Darling Myriah has a dilemma!
Sigh*..... hi She She, I have a little dilemma. I just bought these two new pairs of jeans. No, this does not look like a problem, but it is. I simply don't know where in my closet to put them! Do I hang them? Do I stack them? My only stack-able surfaces are drawers, which means that I can't really tell which jeans are which. But if I hang them, they sure take up a lot of room, and I find myself squishing items that really should not be squished. If you have any advice, I would sure appreciate it. Hearts! ~Myriah
Well Myriah dear, I do have a solution for you! In my very own closet I have recently doubled my storage space -- yes, doubled it -- by creating my own closet organizer-type solution. I am completely hopeless with a hammer and nails, so I opted for totally portable units that would fit in my existing closet without having to make alterations (or hire a carpenter with a tool belt and butt-cleavage. ) I went to my favorite store on earth - Target - and bought a hanging canvas sweater shelf, two hanging canvas shoe organizers, and a set of stackable wooden shelves. Home Depot had the perfect set of wire mesh storage drawers (one shallow drawer, three deep drawers). I then divided my closet into thirds. One third is for hanging long items (dresses, coats, long skirts, etc), one third has the wire mesh storage drawers on the bottom, with additional hanging space above for blouses and tops. The final third has all three hanging canvas organizers for shoes and sweaters. Since they only hang down 48" I was able to put a set of stackable wooden shelves on the floor below for additional shoe/boot storage.
Now for the jeans: you now have several different options for storing your jeans. Personally, I would fold them and put them in the wire mesh drawers. Since they are obviously now your two new favorite pairs of jeans, I would assign them each their own permanent home/drawer; that way they are always exactly where they should be and you don't have to root around through everything to find them. In fact, that should be a rule of thumb for everything in your closet. Assign each item a home location. The old addage "a place for everything and everything in its place" is a rule all She She girls live by when it comes to storing our gorgeous fashions!
Well, dearest Myriah, I hope this helps!
