31 Days: Zoe’s Closet
When we moved in last fall, we let Zoe choose her room. She decided on the room with the smallest closet. I tried to talk her out of it and persuade her into taking the office, but she wasn’t having any of it. I think the rooms are the same in terms of size, but the office has a much larger closet.
I foresee her regretting that decision in a few years when she’s a teenager with all the shoes and all the bags and all the clothes.
To maximize her closet space, I decided to pick up a pack of slimline hangers. I scored these bad boys at HomeGoods for $12.99.
Zoe’s closet currently gives me hives every time I need to hang her clothes up, those godforsaken plastic hangers are too big and bulky. The shelf is hung quite low (or the bar is hung too high) and I can barely maneuver the hanger off the bar. It seems like I break one hanger every other day and it makes me angry. I already hate laundry enough, I don’t need hangers affecting my blood pressure in such a negative manner.
Once I started pulling her clothes out, I noticed some things no longer fit her and I put them aside. I then decided that her tshirts should be folded and put into her dresser and that’s where I noticed more too small clothes.
Forty-five minutes later, I had Zoe’s closet and dresser organized and a large pile of clothes (and one sleeping bag) to bag up and donate.
I’m even donating the hangers, I can’t even with these jokers.
Verdict: Slimline hangers were worth every penny, I’m going back and getting another pack. Not only do they maximize Zoe’s closet space, I don’t say a cuss word when I take one out of the closet, they slide right out.
And it better stay like this. So help me.
