About a month ago, I decided that it was high time for me to face the black hole called “My Closet”. I had my work cut out for me, and so I broke it into 3 phases.
In Phase 1, I tackled my purses, shoes and a huge pile of “stuff” that took up an entire shelf in my walk-in closet. I separated the pile into items to keep, donate and throw away (because many of the items were old t-shirts, etc. that I felt had lived a good life).
In Phase 2, I created an expensive scarf organizer from an idea that I had seen on Pinterest.
The Finale was my hanging clothes. I had gotten to the point where it was taking me so long to get ready for work, simply because I couldn’t find anything in the chaos. This final phase proved to be a lot more work than I expected.
Once again, I separated each item by keep, give away or throw away. Then I started organizing – dresses, suits, skirts, blouses, company logo wear on one side; pants, work sweaters, turtlenecks and nice t-shirts, cardigans, sweaters and jeans. Whew!
I even went one step further, and arranged outfits for my entire work week at the front of one rack.
I love my new closet! I hope I have inspired you to do something to make your life a little easier!
