This year I thought I'd try something new for my resolution. My resolution is this: I am going to get my house organized, one room at a time. First I am starting with my master bedroom closet. I have a decent size walk in closet. Right now it is pretty much busting at the seams with clothes, shoes and purses... Many of which I have not worn or used in several years. For my first step, today I have been going through the items and creating piles... A donate pile, a trash pile and a pile of items to keep. If I don't use an item and it is still in good shape I will donate it, otherwise it's going into the trash. I'm trying to part with everything that I don't wear, don't use or that doesn't fit well. The rule is supposed to be, if you haven't worn it in a year, get rid of it. Well, I am deviating a little, but I am using a two year rule. Also, if I don't love it, I should probably just get rid of it. Items in our closets that we don't love, pretty much just sit there and take up valuable space. So finally I am letting them go. Hopefully someone else can use them! One thing I have chosen to keep, which obviously I don't wear, is my wedding dress. I figure it's okay to keep one or two sentimental items in my closet :)
I can't afford fancy built in organizers, but I did get nice wood hangars to hang everything on. I also got a little shelf shoe rack that goes on the floor and a hanging organizer for all of my P.J.'s. Clearing out all the junk and making these few improvements should make a much more enjoyable closet space for me .
I'd love to hear from you!
