OK, PStoller, where do you store all this stuff???
Good question. I have decent built-in closet space in my apartment. In the bedroom, I had the original large closet customized by Closet World so it's double-hung for shirts with shelves over that for cotton sweaters, and cedar-lined shelves up both sides for wool sweaters. Then, I had a long closet built by CW along one wall, with two double-hung units"”one for yet more shirts, one for short casual jackets and vests"”and a third unit split between a long, single-hung compartment and a set of drawers and shelves. Drawers hold jeans and underthings, and there's a jewelry drawer, too, for cufflinks and watches and whatnot. Shelves are for tees and pullovers. The long compartment is for robes, belts and ties; the belts are on a belt rack, and the ties are hung on multi-tiered pant hangers, so I can get about 50 ties to a hanger. My second bedroom, which I use as an office, has two built-in closets. I use one for jackets, one for pants. I also added one single-width and four double-width Ikea armoires, which my wife uses for her clothes. Two of those are double-hung, two single hung with drawers and shelves on the bottom half, and the one single-width unit is for full-length storage. There's also a hallway coat closet for, well, coats, and we have some stuff in a storage space in the basement. Even so, it's not enough, since my wife is as bad a clothes-horse as I am, if not worse. She's been here almost a year, and we still have a livingroom filled with boxes she shipped from NYC. I think our big solution is going to be massive eBay sales in the new year.
