I have been so busy.   And today, I finally finished organizing my fall and winter wardrobe.  I have purged, I have pared down, and I have made it perfect (except for restocking my turtlenecks and tees).

Just as I finished, and settled down to take a break and catch up on email, the shelving failed with gusto.

Just - - (*&(*&*%&*$&.

    • Oh, way!  LOL!  I don’t know if I should laugh, get a drink, or both.  Of course, what I would have worn to obtain said drink is buried in the rubble!

    • I think you might be right!  Looks like I get to learn how to install a shelving system tomorrow.  Yikes!

    • There is the matter of a pair of black slouch boots...those would be a nice consolation prize along with the celebratory sweaters!

    • I just purged my closet yesterday!  Got rid of those shirts with the cup size DD for shoulder pads.  What was I thinking keeping some of them?  Flashback 80’s....maybe a halloween costume?  Anyway, made a trip to the goodwill, consignment shop and the dumpster.  I can actually walk in to my walkin closet, without tripping!  It feels good to actually know what I have in the closet.  The problem is I have an assortment of about 4 different sizes for my yoyo weight issues.  Fortunately, my shelving is still intact.

    • Both!  Sweaters AND boots.  There are irreplaceable vintage bags somewhere in that wreckage that I cannot find.  

      And thank you for the DAMNs, empower!  They helped!

    • Kitten,Ladies,

      My brother had the same thing happen to him a few months ago. Only it happened in the middle of the night while he was sleeping. He awoke at 2 a.m. to the most horrible sounds coming from his closet. Thinking maybe a raccoon or some other animal had gotten in to his house, he bolted for the front door in his undies! He ran outside, luckily his car door was unlocked, so he sat inside and prepared himself for what was to come. After sitting out there in the cold for an hour, he ventured back in to his house and into his room. And of course he found that his closet had come undone and his clothes were everywhere! LOLLL!
      And he said that some of his neighbors were outside when he bolted out in his undies, but he did not care. He thought his life was in jeopardy!! :)

    • I was actually thinking how glad I am that the shelving didn’t collapse in the middle of the night.  That would have gotten *ugly*.

    • But I can’t have too many clothes!  I’ve just gotten rid of more than half of them.  LOL!

      And vigirl - you should have seen the dog’s face.  She grumbled at the closet for about ten minutes.

    • OMG...I definitely feel your pain.  The same thing happened to me a few years back.  I was sitting in the living room just shooting the breeze, my husband and I, when he heard this loud commotion. We ran to the back, only to find out that my closet had collapse.  I had a walk-in at that time and had just gotten through straighten it up, so I could walk in.  

      I laugh when I look back on it, but at that time, I was horrified.  It wasn’t the thought of fixing the closet, but having to pull them out and then put them back in.  Of course, like most husband, mine got on to me, saying I have too much.  What does he know, a girl never have too much clothes.  Well, he fixed it, bolted, nailed, cemented, I am not sure, but it was steadfast.

      Recently,I moved and I had him take those shelves down and bring with us.

      So sorry, but LOL
