Optimizing closet space has become a necessity in our little rental condo. My old walk in closet was a luxury I’m not privy to in our temporary digs. Nor do I want to drop any major dollars on anything permanent. What’s a girl going to do? Snoop around Pinterest of course. You’ll find all kinds of great organizational ideas on Petals Pinterest Board
By the way, did you know people used to buy spoons when they travelled? Then they’d hang them up on plagues in their kitchen and polish them once a year. I’m I really dating myself?

What I like to bring back when I travel is a scarf. There’s one from Paris, London, Venice…they’re fun to wear because they remind me of our wonderful trips. There’s also the Swirly Scarves I learned to knit this summer, remember those?
My dilemma was, all these many scarves seemed to be ALL OVER the house. I’m always running up the stairs or down the stairs looking for the right one. I guess that is cheaper than a gym pass. I settled on an expandable tension rod (used for shower curtains), shower hooks and a weird little contraption from Ikea for my scarves.
In total I spent under $20.00 and it’s all something I can use in a second bathroom in a new home when we move.
I hung the rod in what would otherwise be wasted space. The shower hooks are great for holding all my little black purses and hats too.
It’s not fancy but it was economical, quick and it’s portable. Now you know some of my hang-ups. 😉
What’s that Blossum? You want mommy to organize you too?
Maybe later, time for a little break!
