The reality is that I don't have walk in closets, but just strict moth/silver fish control. Over the years I have purchased plastic garment bags from Kmart and Target and gradually transported a lot of clothing into them.
I want to note that the closet experts always suggest cloth garment bags, but I added the plastic bags because it was convenient to grab and go whenever I remembered how destructive moths and silver fish can be. I also have crushed dried lavender from my garden in my closet as well since I have heard that lavender is a moth repellent.

On Friday I bribed my daughter with a Jamba Juice so she would agree to go to one of the local pharmacies and get flu shots. We had to wait a little too long for the pharmacy tech to come out and then I had a bout of panic when I saw that he was not unwrapping new needles. I of course questioned this, which bugged him, but he then showed me how a retractable needle works. Still, I was left uncomfortable because he acted like a rude jerk.
The lady was sweet about it and only seemed mildly distracted as she tried to continue business with the employee. I overheard her mention that her husband had died a week ago and I then felt a little bad about us oohing and aahing over her dog. My concern turned to relief when she mentioned that it was probably good for him to get all of this extra attention.

During my Maxi dress/skirt kick this year, one of my pet peeves has been all of the halter style dresses that I wish were a skirt instead. There have been so many cute colors and prints, but halter dresses have never been my style.
About a month ago, I noticed one of the moms at my daughter's school in a darling printed skirt. When I inquired where she bought it, she informed me that it was a Kmart dress that she just cut the top off. Instant skirt!
While cutting the dress, I carefully came close to the elastic waist part because I wanted to get as much length out as I could. It is still long on me, so I roll it about two times at my waist and wear a longer tee to cover up the waist.
