What’s Your Closet Personality?

What’s Your Closet Personality?  From Fine Living ~CLICK ~

Closet - bpende                                                             bpende – Flickr.com

Just think how an organized closet would help simplify ones life.  You walk in – see exactly what you need – get it – done.  Or… You walk in – don’t see what you need – waste precious time looking for it – saying a few “fudge” words while feeling your blood pressure rise – you finally find it, Yeah!  But now your in a grouchy mood for the entire morning.  To me, being organized is – Priceless!
