Name: Holly in Yorkville Location: UES Size: 44 x 45" Pitch: Fibber McGee is alive and living on the Upper East Side! He's in my closet and I would love to kill him. My closet is so bad that I had to add a latch so that the door will close. This 44 x 45", unsquare space with a 9-foot ceiling is stuffed with clothes, coats, shoes, boots, linens, bags, a laundry box, iron, ironing board, quilts (in those pillow cases), sewing machine, vacuum, rug shampooer, beach chair, fabric, Halloween costumes, photos, journals, Playbills, scripts, books and other miscellaneous clutter. [more below...] In short: way too much! But it's the only closet I have. It's been teetering on the edge for some time but went totally off the rails this winter. My plan was to purge and paint this spring/summer, so this contest couldn't be better timed. The door that has to be latched. This could be why. Shelves behind the clothes! This plastic box is actually a good solution for the laundry problem.
