Every week I preach to individuals about the importance of having an organized working closet, so can someone please tell me how in the world did I let my closet get to this point!?!?! It is in a total disarray, I am almost embarrassed to show you all what my closet looks like currently. I can barely walk into the small closet to pick out an outfit; I am stepping on belts, shoes, and shoeboxes which has become quite frustrating. So I have taken the vow to clean and organize my closet so bare with me, this is going to be an adventure. Let me put the disclaimer out there that this is going to be a work in progress.
The first step in creating an organized closet is to go through everything and purge items that you don’t wear and will probably never wear again. That also includes items damaged beyond repair and items you absolutely have no idea how they got in there. I believe there is no need to hold on to items that you will never wear again, which are taking up unnecessary space in your closet. Once you go through your closet always donate any unworn items to a worthy cause such as the Salvation Army and/or a family member or friend in need. I always say one person’s trash is another person’s treasure. Someone may think your purged items are a great find. Kendie Everyday has a great series on organizing your closet. Check out her suggestions on Purging Your Closet. I know you ladies will find some useful tips on her blog.
So stay tuned for the after photos of the purge and the next step in the process which is assessing what you currently have and what you need to purchase…..
