Thinner

23 Aug

As a model, I have way too many clothes. My walk-in closet is bursting at the seams, and if my family didn’t like to visit all the time, I’d turn my spare bedroom into a closet. At last count, I own 34 tank tops in every conceivable color, 31 skirts, 17 pairs of jeans, and the beat goes on…

Every once in a while something really does change a person’s life, and when I was at Costco last Saturday (looking for a new pair of jeans) it happened to me when I noticed this box of hangers guaranteed to be the “solution to my closet makeover”.

Makeover? I love makeovers! I promptly purchased 4 boxes of 50 and took them home to my poor unhappy closet. Dubious but hopeful, I replaced my old plastic hangers with these skinny fuzz-covered beauties, and what a difference they made! My closet no longer looks like an episode of Hoarders, and I actually have about 2 feet of unused space on one of the bars.

How have I not heard of this miracle before now? This could save relationships! I remember having to draw a Sharpie line in the center of my college dorm closet to keep my roommate’s clothing from spilling onto my side. We were so hardcore about it that we actually measured it with a tape measure to make sure we each had the same amount. My poor fiance has to keep his wardrobe in the guest closet along with old pet beds, my winter clothes and boxes of Christmas decorations. Maybe I’ll be generous and let him move into my closet now that I have some extra space!

Oh, who am I kidding? I actually had to try to type that last bit without laughing…

Off to the mall! …and to Costco for more hangers.
