Scared by a closet & can't get started
Please send moral support!
I don't have a real closet of my own in this house, but use bits and pieces of everyone else's closets plus an old 3-foot wide vinyl closet for out of season clothes. Since there is no rhyme or reason to where clothes are stuffed, laying out clothes the night before is a challenge (skirt in one closet, blazer in another, blouse hanging in the laundry room, etc.). The "stuffed" description is not an exaggeration, which pretty much guarantees that I have to iron my blouses or leave them hanging in the laundry room so they don't wrinkle.
I bought (finally) a 4-foot wide portable closet. It looks HUGE!! It's in the dining room now, but is going to be carried down to one end of the laundry/furnace room today (DS was adamant that it not go anywhere NEAR his weight bench, LOL). Yesterday afternoon I cleaned the laundry room (including a totally ignored corner that held carpet remnants DH wanted to save--which I hope to have out on the curb tonight). All is ready.
My goal today is to arrange entire OUTFITS in the new closet. I'm excited, but it sure seems daunting. With the changing fall/winter weather I can incorporate two seasons (I've already started wearing wool blend pants to work on football game days, since I go straight from work to the games) and probably put together 2 weeks worth of outfits? More? I actually have no clue.
Where to start?? HELP! This is something I have wanted to do for years but have never had the space. Imagine... entire outfits planned in advance left to right, with laundered outfits added to the end of the row, sort of like a perpetual calendar in a closet!
Why is this so scary sounding? LOL And I'm only a little bit ashamed to admit I'm paralyzed by fear....
