Our last home was a 3 story century farm house built in 1915 that had been renovated from top to bottom. Wrap around veranda, 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, two stair cases, original pine floors and a kitchen you could get lost in. It was our dream house and we sold it. We sold it to move to the Island to be together after 3 years of living as a weekend family while Mister was working in Ottawa.
Our bedroom was a “master suite”, taking up the entire 3rd floor, that included a full 4 piece bath and a walk-in closet that could hold all of my business clothes and shoes. I have a lot of shoes. If you ask Mister he would say “too many shoes” but is there really such a thing as too many shoes?
Answer: No, no there is not.
I have never once regretted selling that house to move to the Island however I do miss the closet and all that it could hold without looking like an Aldo outlet had exploded. Add to the mix of business clothes, heels with delicious pointy toes, boots, bags and my obsessive compulsion to purchase running gear the closet in our new bedroom just can’t can’t keep it contained.
Tuesday I pulled everything out and dumped it on the bed. I purged, I moved all of my business attire to the spare bedroom closet leaving jeans, running gear and hoodies in our bedroom. The closet looks empty and you can kinda sorta see the floor underneath the shoes.
I feel the need to fill it up again, this time with Under Armour pants, shorts, tech shirts, Mizuno’s and compression socks. The Mister thinks I need therapy or a 12 step program.
I think I need retail therapy.
What are your weaknesses when it comes to buying clothes? Do you have “too many” shoes?
The house is rented and I don’t want to spend a ridiculous amount of money on closet organizers. Suggestions on how to keep it under control and clutter free are very much welcome!
