Did you know that over 95% of all people
have no idea
what clothing they own
because it's crammed and stuffed
into their closet & drawers.
For months now, I have been telling S that I need
to clean out and organize my closet...
each weekend I say I am going to do it... but,
it just hasn't happened.
Well, now that summer is on it's way the timing is perfect!
I am a firm believer that:
IF YOU DON'T SEE IT, YOU WON'T WEAR IT!
So, I have made up my mind that I am going
to tackle my closet & drawers this weekend
& get myself back in that 5% bracket.
I have put together 5 easy ways to get it done & thought
I would share in case you are one of the 95% who need a nudge!
:) here we go!
1. Sort your clothing in 2 piles
(a) clothing you wear
(b) clothing you have not worn in 12 months.
~ donate (b)
2. Categorize pile (a)
ie: work, going out, working out, summer, winter, sweaters, jeans etc.
3. Iron everything
(ugh, I know... this part is horrible, but, think of how nice
it will all look on the hanger and folded nicely in your drawers.)
*remember, this is a NEW start to a cleaner, more organized you
*and, this will help you sort your dry cleaning items and any items that
you need to get altered & mended
4. Leave space between hanging clothing
& also, keep articles in drawers in rows
* this will help keep things in order long term
*you can even go as far as putting each outfit on
& taking a picture to catalog your wears
5. Organize shoes, accessories & personal items too
everything has it's place & is easy to get to
*Remember to keep this up with each load of laundry / dry cleaning pick up...
The one way to change a bad habit in life is to start and to not look back!
Good luck, put some music on and have fun with it!
I hope you find some great treasures deep down in there
that you have forgotten about!
