This is how our clothes are arranged at the moment. I hate how I don't have enough space for my tops, so I have to put some of them under the hung clothes. This usually means that there are two stacks of tops hidden at the back of the closet and the stacks in front are always in danger of toppling over.
There are still 10 million things to be done in our condo, but first and foremost on my list is a tall, white dresser, similar to this.
The top drawer should be my chest level and the bottom drawer will be for our laundry because G wants to put a chair inside the room for him to lounge in while watching TV, so that chair will go where our hamper is now.
The dresser will house the clothes currently stored in the wire cubes, as well as the shirts under the hung clothes. I'm hoping that all of my clothes, including the dresses stored in a plastic bin under our bed, will fit in the dresser and our current open closet. I weeded out my closet a few weeks ago and yielded a small bin's worth of clothes, but I guess I have to go at it again and be absolutely ruthless this time around, if my clothes are to fit in the closet and dresser.
It's a good thing that there are so many furniture makers here in the Dirty South and that our design is pretty basic and straightforward. We're getting our mid-year bonus next week so that takes care of funding for the dresser. I can't wait to have a more organized clothing storage system!
