Sometimes when I go into Bed Bath & Beyond... I don't realize I need something until I see it! That was the case with this little guy. I went into the store for Keurig coffee and I came out with coffee, a makeup organizer (that's a story for another blog post), and an Owl Scarf Organizer! LOL! Seriously though, when I saw this organizer I was reminded of the back corner of my closet that I haven't visited for months. It holds scarves, belts, and sweater dresses, and (sorry Mom!) it's not exactly organized!
Here's the sad state of affairs... you can see a bunch of scarves draped over a jewelry organizer, belts draped over other hangers (while the actual belt organizer isn't even being used), and it's just kind of chaotic! In my defense, once I open the closet door, this mess is kind of hidden so it's not really "in my face" all the time (excuses, excuses...) But scarf season is right around the corner, so this needs to get fixed!
This organizer was $9.99, and there was also one shaped like a purse that was quite cute as well. This one has a dark bronze finish and as you can see, you can just poke your scarves through the holes and then you've got a nice slim way to keep them in your closet.
Here it is all filled up! I used this for my thinner scarves that I might style with an outfit, not my bulky snow-storm type scarves that I use strictly for warmth purposes!
I have 12 scarves in here, though you could probably squeeze a few more in if you needed to. The ends of the scarves just hang down the back of the organizer and when you need one, you can just pull it out from the front. Also- I got totally excited filling this up. Is anyone else like that? Whenever I get some new organizational tool/container I want to fill it up ASAP!! :)
Now things are much more streamlined in that corner of my closet! I also got my belts hung up & organized (you could use this owl thing for belts, too!), and found a few surprises on the floor! Dangling scarves and belts are a cat's playground. Glad this is all straightened up! :)
What are some nifty organizational tools that you use to make life easier? I'm all ears! Thanks for checking out my post! :)
- That Trashy Taco Soup that I mentioned to in yesterday's blog post? AMAZING. I did make just a few adjustments to it... I didn't add the pinto beans, I used frozen corn, I added a bit of sugar, a bit of cayenne pepper for more heat, and around 1/3 cup of water (it's still a pretty thick stew). Oh and I used ground turkey. I totally recommend serving it with Fritos! They soak up some of the soup without turning to mush. A little light sour cream & cheese is good too. Tyler and I love, love, loved it!
- Got very frustrated at iMovie earlier today (technical difficulties!!), but fortunately got tomorrow's video finished!
- Also tomorrow-- Beauty Broadcast Live at the normal time! 9am CST.
- Oh and here's the coffee I picked up at Bed Bath & Beyond! I had my first cup of Pumpkin Spice this morning and it was heaven. This box also comes with Golden French Toast (one of Tyler's favorites) and Gingerbread!
