The Messiest Closet? Ben’s Terror
Name: Ben Martin
Hood: W. 106th Street
Dimensions: 22″ deep, 82″ wide, 108″ tall
The problems with this closet: It’s meant for a boring person with no personal effects. In the closet are my hanging clothes, cat carriers, videotapes, art supplies, frames, winter wear, the telephone collection, fan, dehumidifier, video cameras, paper supplies, linens and the all-important what-not.
Not in closet: Fold-able clothing (witness the IKEA quasi-solution to the left of the closet), luggage, tools, shoes (stacked on shelfing under loft bed), the air conditioner (woefully waiting for space at the closet door, pictured), the “guest room” (inflatable mattress and blankets).
Yes, I should take the books out – but I’m trying to be oh-so-zen-like and minimalistic and I removed the clunky bookshelf from the wall (which would make the apt. very soothing – if not for the waiting-line to get in the closet.
I need a better structure within the closet (D’oh!). I have no time and extra $$$ to hire a closet expert (and a purge-meister). I can’t (and
shouldn’t) entertain in my apartment and my social life is flagging…dying…
