This week Nick was gone for two nights on a business trip, so I decided to surprise him with a little closet/dresser reorganization. Here's what his closet looked like when he left on Monday night:
Yikes, right?!You can see he has a small space, with little room for hanging clothing. In order to maximize space, I took down all the dry cleaner's wire hangers that weren't in use and made a pile for returning them to the dry cleaner on our next trip.
And then................ I tackled the dresser. Here's the pile of unmatched socks lurking in the drawers:
I organized the drawers, devoting each drawer to a specific type of clothing (rather than the mismatched clothes in every drawer). I also started a bag of donation items (including shirts and pants from high school, and things I didn't really like...).
