I have been here in Southwest Florida now for almost 6 months. What have I learned in such a short time?
1. Retirement is just a long vacation from your job.
2. There is no reason to live in the Midwest unless you have a career there.
3. Being “theclosetconsult” means nothing to retirees. Thrift stores and Wal marts are about the only games in town.
So…………..that said, I decided to do my little closet here on Mel O De Lane. Walk in closets don’t exist here, so I get an 8’x4′ space, some dresser drawers and that is it.
Also, everything here feels “DAMP” because the humidity is a bit high. But with that you get, naturally curly hair (whether you like it or not) and, your nails and skin look better than ever. No dry, cracked hands. In fact, I have not used hand lotion in months. Just sunscreen after I shower with a bit of my new favorite fragrance,
“Flower Bomb lotion”……………..love this lotion as my signature fragrance! Perfect!
Anyhoo…………I was bored this week, and my sister is coming to stay, and I wanted to have some dresser drawers for her, so I decided that I would hire “theclosetconsult.” She was FABULOUS!!!! (if I do say so myself).
After she purged everything she ever owned in Chicago, (thanks ebay!) she had a pile of clothes and a very organized and clean closet.
My husband says it is all about the maintenance, but I like the idea of change……..so I just change every so often.
Here is my new organized closet. It might not be fancy, but this is Florida, and it suits me just fine. I am going to get very used to this lifestyle.
See you next week!
