In my mind, I have a "dream" closet - with a classy ottoman to sit on and a lovely chandelier hanging from the ceiling, perfectly designed shelves and cubbies for shoes and purses ... all empty! I LOVE empty drawers and cupboards. Do you think this is taking it a bit too far?

But in the meantime, my garage is a little full! I have asked my husband to keep the garage door closed. Can you imagine what the neighbors will think? (Hoarder!)
