As I write this, the flush of shame is slowly creeping up my neck and reddening my face with embarrassment. I cannot believe I am confessing to my disastrous closet online, but nevertheless, here I go.
My sweaters are piled far too high on the top shelf above the hanger bar, toppling over on a constant basis. Only sometimes do I bother to pick them up and refold them.
The ancient and cheaply made shoe racks in the bottom of my closet have loose supporting bars, therefore, they don't actually hold the shoes. I don't even try to put them back on the racks.
I actually do a good job of hanging my clothes up. The problem would be that my toddler loves to play in the closet and aside from making a huge mess of the shoes and sweaters on the floor, he knocks some clothes off the hangers too, to add to the horrifying mix.
