DID YOU KNOW
There are 18 species of penguins. The largest of these is the Emperor penguin. Their bodies are kept warm by a thick layer of fat but to increase body heat they comb their feathers to trap air in them. All species of penguins live south of the Equator, but only six live in Antarctica. There are no penguins in the North Pole.
TIP OF THE DAY
How to Organize a Closet
By Erinn Valencich, Expert in Interior Design
Opening up a closet door can be a nightmare for some. Many times, clothes, shoes, purses and other miscellaneous items get shoved together and pose a problem when you want to find something. Here are a few tips to get your closet organized and save time in the future when going through it. Not only will a well-organized closet help you find things, but it will make it a much more pleasant view when you leave the door open!
Things You’ll Need:
Hangers, Shoe rack, Metal, Wood or Plastic shelves, Rod, Hooks, Low Dresser , Decorative boxes
First things first. Designate areas for specific items or categories. As far as clothes go, I like to organize them by color. This gives the most artistic look to a closet, and helps you put things away quickly. I organize each color category from short to long sleeve, then dresses and sweaters. I prefer to keep all skirts and pants separate. Jackets have their own area too. This way when you need one, they are all together. Again grouped by color, short to long. By doing this, you can take advantage of the height you create underneath your short-hanging clothes. Skirts and shorter shirts are great for adding a shoe rack underneath. It lets you see your shoes without having to pull any lower-hanging clothes out of the way.
The top of your closet is a great spot to put purses. You can utilize the vertical space that most older homes provide by hanging metal or plastic shelves. If you prefer, take a trip to the home improvement store and add new wood shelving by easily nailing small supports to the wall underneath and then one 3/4 inch-thick board on top. If you have an older home with one clothes rod, removing that rod, hanging it up higher and putting another rod underneath is a quick afternoon project that will literally double the amount of hanging space!
If you have closet doors that swing out, over-the-door racks are a great place to store items like belts, scarves and hats. If you don't have doors that swing out, you can make room for these items by simply adding a few hooks on the inside of your closet to the sides. By taking the few extra steps to create these little areas, your closet will become much more functional!
If you don't have a lot of room in your bedroom, you could always take a low dresser and put it in your closet for storage. This also gives you the opportunity to add more storage on top of it while being able to close your closet for a clean and uncluttered look.
Sick of all the plastic storage containers? Decorative boxes are a great way to add storage, with a stylish twist! Organize.com (see Resources below) has a lot of great storage solutions for your closet!
