I live in a pretty small house, and am having some issues with my closet. I do not have the knowledge to redo the closet or the cash to pay someone else, so I'm hoping you guys can help me out. I have a dresser and a chest of drawers, so clothes storage isn't an issue, but I have a really long and not-deep-at-all closet (with two doors, but one is blocked by my godkids' bed for when they visit), and I'd like to figure out how to best use the space. I don't have a lot of clothes that hang up (I have some that HAVE to hang up, but most are foldable), and I want to figure out how to get the best use out of the closet, with my hanging organizer (I keep sweaters in it because I've no room in the drawers for them), and my stackable purse and shoe containers. I know I cannot put the shoe containers in the unreachable portion of the closet because, well, SHOES. I may decide to put the purse containers back there, but I'd rather have them at my disposal, because, well, PURSES. I also would prefer to not have anything hanging over the door because my only full-length mirror is on the inside of the non-blocked closet door. I have some shelves, but I have my sheets and blankets on those (as well as blankets in a trunk in the back of the closet too-I live in a house without central heating and air!). Does anyone know of a good closet organizational plan? I'm getting really frustrated with my current jumble of mess in there.
I also have a small issue with my hall closet (AKA, my craft closet). I have shelves in it, but the space is really unusable because the closet is very narrow, and very deep. I was thinking of getting some of those fabric boxes or some baskets, and setting them on the shelf to store crafty stuffs in, but I worry about my ability to get to them if need be.
*Side note: I cannot interchange the things in these two closets because the hall closet is NOWHERE NEAR my bedroom, and I really need to have my clothes in my bedroom.
Also, and this is more of a holiday decor question, my family has always decorated for EVERY. SINGLE. HOLIDAY. Mom bought me a cute flag for my door for Memorial Day and the Fourth of July, and I love it-It's adorable...but it gets caught in the wind and bangs against the door...I've already "answered" the door four times today. I think if I attached something heavy to the bottom, it would stop this, but I have no idea what would work...It's not a full sized flag, probably only about 2.5 feet X 1.5 feet. Any suggestions?
Thanks in advance! <3
