Here are some resolutions for the future:
- everything in my closet must a) fit, and b) look great on me -- ideally, I should c) love it too.
- seasonal change -- fall/winter and spring/summer -- what's not in season goes in storage
- keep everything the way it looked when we were selling our house -- i.e., the racks shouldn't be more than three-quarters full, so that clothes can be easily accessed; nothing should look crowded
- if a new piece of clothing comes in, something in the closet must go -- this should help my budget too!
Now, if I could just find a way to keep slippery strappy dresses from sliding off wood hangers -- those little loopy things at the armpit don't work nearly as well as I'd like. Advice? I'm tempted to glue velcro down, but there must be a better solution out there.
Also, I would like to add a resolution that Kevin should always put his clothes away, rather than drop them on the floor, but sadly, that is not up to me. Maybe we should have gone for his/her closets in this renovation, instead of a shared walk-in. Sigh.
What shape is your closet in?
Update: Okay, two minutes of googling found many non-slip hanger strips; I was not the first person to encounter this problem. Anyone have any experience using these from Organize-It? They look pretty good, and I'd buy a few packs if I were sure they would work well. (Side note: I didn't know there was a store called Organize-It. Danger, danger, Will Robinson. Hello, I'm Mary Anne. I'm an organization junkie. Hello, Mary Anne!)
