Only a select few have seen my closet. I can count on one hand the people that have witnessed the real life nightmare of walking into complete chaos. It's a disgrace and I have taken full responsibility and matters into my own hands. No, I haven't hired The Container Store to come in do an elfa redesign, even though it would be a life long dream come true. I did however, do some major purging on New Year's Day. I was a machine.

For three hours straight I made donation and resale store piles, then listed more than two dozen items on Poshmark. Hallelujah! I can now walk into my closet and actually stand and move around without tripping over a shoe, bag, hanger or piece of clothing that I thought I had lost months ago.
The funny part of the story comes now. I warned Ross that he needed to make a palette on the living room floor and fall asleep watching football. There was no reason he needed to be subjected to what was going down in the closet, bathroom and bedroom. It was that horrific. But as we all know, men sometimes do not listen to us women. So, being the curious man he is, came into my workspace. The pile of shoes immediately caught his eye. He started counting pairs of shoes and I tried to explain that half of them were finding new homes soon. During his mathematical adventure, he counted not two, not four, not six, but nine pairs of leopard shoes. No way. Yes, way.
In my defense to him, I explained how leopard is the new neutral and that I was about to only have seven pairs, not nine. One went to Goodwill and the other is on Poshmark. To plead my case further, they all have different shades, patterns, heels heights and the ones I am wearing today are boots...my one and only pair of leopard booties. Thank you very much.
