Bye Bye Plastic Bins

When we lived in a tiny apartment in New York City, I kept my clothes in our living room closet and used plastic bins/drawers as my dresser in the closet. We also used wire cubes as another dresser. Since our apartment was under 500 square feet we didn't want to put anymore furniture in there than necessary and we certainly did not want the burden of moving it later since we knew our stay in New York was not permanent. Our move to DC was also only originally guaranteed for a year, so our mock dressers stayed and remained an eye sore to our daily lives. This ends today! We got our nightstands last week and today will welcome our new dressers. Actual dressers! Real drawers! No looking at piles of clothes shoved in wire shelves and clear plastic drawers!

Organizing and arranging our stuff? Well, that's another matter. . .
