I spent part of the Labor Day weekend attempting to bring order to my under-sized closet. For awhile now, my shoe storage has consisted of me lining them up in rows in front of my dresser, thus causing me to (a) trip over them when trying to access the dresser, (b) inadvertently push them underneath the dresser, (c) wipe off a layer of dog hair before wearing. And on more than one occasion, I’ve found a few of the dog’s tennis balls lying in my wedges.
After measuring my closet, I settled on this 12-pair shelving organizer from The Container Store. I would have loved the stackable cedar shoe racks, but alas, not enough room. I think I’ve somehow ended up with the smallest closet in America. Though slightly disappointed with the quality (particleboard after all), and realizing that I don’t have much room to grow, I’m pretty happy with the finished product. The good news is I do have one other closet in my bedroom. The bad news — what happens when my husband can no longer store his stuff in the guest bedroom closet?
