I used to live by myself.  For seven glorious (if not very expensive) months I had an entire two-bedroom apartment to myself.

My clean, organized, particular self.

And then I realized that I was very poor.  And then I was given the opportunity to take in a roommate and I was blinded by the possibility to cut my rent in half and took that opportunity.

And then I realized that I had to allow my new roommate some closet space.  In her room.

I guess that's fair...?

And then my room was overflowing with stuff.

My first course of action was to purge purge purge.  I donated 4 (or was it 5? 6?) stuffed bags of clothing, shoes, coats, and purses (to my friends reading this: I promise there was nothing you wanted in there).

Now I need to come up with creative and affordable and stylish storage solutions.  Enter IKEA.

I've got a hack planned and it involves this baby:

IKEA ODDA 3 drawer chest

Check back here for the results in a week or two.  Maybe longer.  I tend to over-commit my weekends, okay?
