I also picked up a dresser at IKEA. I still need to put the dresser together, but my other major source of mess in my room is my clothes. I have a closet, but I've never really liked using it for clothes. It's got these shelves that are a bit above my head, or at least are at around eye level. Then it's got these kinda crappy poles that are pretty tight to the walls. I'd had the idea for a while that a dresser might work to keep my clothes tidy, and that was the larger reason why I stopped by IKEA in the first place.
There's still other stuff to do to make my apartment more presentable, but I'm feeling pretty good about these being a couple big issues that will be resolved once I've gotten them set up.
