DUN DUN DUN DDDDDUUUUNNNNN…………..
It’s closet time!!!! Nooo!! you say….it’s ok. It will be worth it!
I just went through my closet. I will show you mine if you will show me yours.
So you know how this goes, right? You take it all out. We have already measured – haven’t we? Have you done inventory for your closet? It is tough and takes time but well worth it. What do we really need? I wear and wash the same group of clothes in a season. I am moving down the road of simplicity. It is easier to find clothes when you can fit in everything you have and you love everything in your closet. Be strict on your love-it rule.
Another rule I like is the one touch rule. You may only touch an item once. Pick it up, make a decision, do not pick it back up. Make four piles. Keep, Donate, Trash, Mend. I have two colors of trash bags and two boxes for this process. Boxes for keep and mend. Trash bags for donate and trash. Label them if you need help remembering.
I use clear plastic boxes for my shoes. I have a hanger for all of my flip flops and I use a crate to hold “outside” shoes. I get my shoe boxes from Walmart or Ace Hardware store for under a dollar. Organization does not have to be expensive. I also use a hanging purse organizer for my smaller purses and a scarve organizer. Here are some examples for you:
I also group my shirts together, pants together, skirts together, and so on. Just general groupings to help me find things.
If you are following along, let me know! I want to know how it is going.
