My Closet said “iQuit!”

So you remember a while back how I’m shopping crazy, and it’s getting worse by the minute. Yeah I was serious, and it was a cry for help. This is how bad this problem has gotten. A month ago, my closet literally quit me. I have so many clothes that the metal thing that holds on to my closet rod came off the wall in a big crash. I was just like “what the heck?”. Ol’ punk *ss metal. It ain’t my fault that all 400 hangers I have are occupied (really not an exaggeration).

closet broke

I had to empty out my closet so it could all come get fixed. Clothes were EVERYWHERE! On the living room couch, on my bed, in the kitchen… Ok not the kitchen but they were inching there. It got fixed AND was reinforced so it could be stronger (or so I thought).

I got home the other night, open my closet, and here is what I saw:

The rod actually broke in 1/3 (not half because there’s 2/3rds left)

What in the hot hades?? How does that even happen? I thought I distributed the weight evenly across the thing. I don’t even know. My poor clothes are now homeless. It’s like my closet just staged a coup on me. It has quit me and my apparels.

Sidenote: I’ll be damned if someone doesn’t tell me shopping is a sport. Went shopping with my girl VEG and we were trying on leggings. Well while I was trying mine on, and they were extra tight so I had to really stretch to get into them. All of a sudden, I got a very painful Charley Horse in my calves. I was hopping around the dressing room screaming “Ow ow ow! Crap, this hurts!” as VEG laughed at me and told me how ridiculous I was. PSHT that ish was painful. What also didn’t help was that I looked like I was gonna go long distance sprinting in them leggings. Anyway, 5 minutes later, my calves stopped looking like I was standing on my tippy toes. They hurt for 2 weeks afterwards. Oh, and yes I bought the leggings. I just haven’t worn them yet. I’m afraid of getting another muscle pull.

Anyway, yeah… sooo I really need to stop buying anything. I purge my closet every 3 months, and give away trash bags (2-3 each time) worth of clothes yet I still have too much. What is I gon’ do? *wall slides*
