I Have My Own Problems

OK so...I’ve been in the same fantastic one bedroom apartment for 5 years.  And, I’m getting itchy.  Itchy like, I’ve made the space work but now I’m tired of it, kinda 5 years itchy.  I only have one closet for clothes and one chest of drawers.  Buying the “Real Simple” hangers have saved my life with a closet the size of Danny Devito.  Now, pay attention. These hangers will save your life with a small closet.  I can keep twice the amount of clothing in half the space!  You can hang hanger on other hanger to keep (my motto) like with like. Also, the streamline shape keeps everything slimly hung.  Not to mention the velour fabric keeps the clothes on the hanger!

SO. My current issue is housing my shoes in my Danny Devito closet.  Now, knowing that I have approximately 33 pairs of shoes.  (Ladies this does not count the boots.  I store them somewhere else.) Hanging the clothes on multiple hangers creates extra length/lateral space.  So the shoes stored aren’t as visible as I’d like them to be because the clothes hang over the shoes!  So the current conundrum isn’t, “Joey you’re a terrible organizer why can’t you figure it out?”  It’s “Joey you’re an amazing organizer!  What do you do?!”

Unfortunately I’m limited by space.  That closet isn’t getting any bigger.  and no matter if I decide there’s no price on a solution I’d still need a contractor in here to break down walls and extend my closet.  So my big brain has to come up with a cost efficient solution...Part 2 to follow.  And I heartily welcome comments and advice ; )
