Closet Organization – Phase 1

When it comes to organizing and decluttering my closet it’s something I have a love-hate relationship with.

Seems like my mom always comes to the rescue. Haha!  She’s amazing when it comes to this sort of stuff. I am too, but with someone else’s items/stuff.  I’ve always thought it was because I didn’t have enough room to properly place everything. As I’m getting older…ahem, I mean wiser, I’ve come to realize that it’s not about quantity it’s about quality and timeless pieces vs a variety of trendy pieces. So for the next several Saturday mornings I am making it a priority to declutter and organize.

First things first, declutter.  I starting this morning going through my closet and from here on out I will once every two months and really inventory what I wear. So I am getting rid of the blouse that bunches up uncomfortably or that sweater that has snags. My thought process is, if I wait to declutter in 6 months or a year, I will forget all of that and these items will just continue to take up space and be items I never reach for. Sometimes donating and decluttering can make us feel guilty because it seems as if we are throwing away money.

But when I donate my clothing or give to someone who needs it for work I feel much better about how my clothes were used. For me personally, I feel it helps me honor God. I never want to feel like I’m just gathering up material items I can’t take with me. So this gives me a healthy perspective that stuff is just stuff and I think He is fine that we enjoy it, but I can’t get attached to it! So if it doesn’t fit or isn’t a favorite let’s give it to someone who will love it!

There’s just something about simplicity and prettiness that this corner gives and it makes me so happy. They are sold out of my free standing piping wardrobe; however, I like thisthis and this one. My idea for this area, is to have my outfits organized for the upcoming week.

Maybe you’re already mastering your inner “Martha Stewart,” if so, I’d love to hear your tips.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
