Knitting so many sweaters a year, I need to have a practical way of storing them and having them at my fingertips when I'm in a hurry and want to find a certain one quickly. In years past I piled them in a teetering mess in this armoire and was never able to find a thing. Five years ago I brought a dozen clear plastic boxes and stacked them in the armoire. That kept everything neat, but was clumsy. Taking out boxes and searching for the sweater took more time than I wanted to spend. Yesterday I found these inexpensive shelf dividers at the Container Store and bought 5 sets, more than enough to handle all my winter sweaters. I couldn't wait to get home and straighten everything up. While I was organizing I finished my two weeks long epic sweater migration by washing my summer sweaters and storing them away for winter, then refilling the armoire with my winter sweaters. I think this, finally, is the answer to my sweater organization! I love organizing, so satisfying. I think I will purchase a few more sets and use them for my boots.
And yes, all those sweaters are hand knit by me, and is really just a fraction of them! The exception is the black and red Dale of Norway fair isle. Shopping links are at the bottom of this post.
|Neat and tidy and everything in sight and at my fingertips.|
|These are the taller dividers. They clamp onto the shelf and are very sturdy.|
|At $9 for a set of two I think they are a bargain.|
