My (very) Dirty little Secret

I am an organized gal. I love filing systems, binders and a place for everything. Unfortunately where we live there is very little room for storage. VERY LITTLE. the one "decent" sized closet is briggy's and thats FULL! I gave up the closet for briggy--so Tom has a very small one in our room, and I have a dresser. I have SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO MUCH clothes---unfortunately about 3 things FIT, so everything I have in my drawers and in BINS everywhere isnt even being worn. Downstairs we have a hall closet that is very small and an even smaller crawl space that is in the back of that closet. The crawl space is FILLED TO THE BRIM with holiday decorations, ornaments, bedding, camping gear, tent, suitcases, more too-tight clothing....For a while the hall closet was fairly organized, but the past few months its really gone downhill. Im starting to buy a lot of stuff to alter for christmas gifts, craft bins, and food storage along with a bin of shoes....ahhhhhhh. normally, i just buy a bunch of bins and stack--but im getting SO SICK OF BINS. I have moved so much the past 7 years of my life and lived out of bins for that long....I hate it! I know I'm selfishly complaining, because there are plenty of people that dont have THINGS to even PUT in bins....i just have been part lazy/part confused. Is there any other way to organize this stuff? we rent, so I cant build shelving....and we can't afford to rent a storage unit. I CANT WAIT TO MOVE INTO A HOUSE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I would appreciate any advice....otherwise, im going to have to break down and

I think I just need to....



I absolutely love this post! not that I like the fact that it's so hard for you to get organized. but the fact that I'm living with the very same issues! plus some! We are too much alike! if you get any good advise let me know!
