Decisions ~ Decisions

Organizing is something everyone needs and uses every day to some degree. Some of you have better control over your clutter than other. Some of you feel overwhelmed at the thought of finding your shoes.

That’s OK. I am here to help you find a method that works for you. Not for your mom, or sister or even the neighbor next door. Something that works for you and your family may in fact not work for everyone.chaos-485493_960_720

Have you heard of the Kondo method?

The Kondo principle is dead simple: Touch every single item. Feel it. Think about it. Ask yourself does it bring me joy? If it does, keep it. If not, ditch it.

Try it. Open your closet and start with your winter clothes. Pull ever thing out one at a time. Touch it. Feel it. Does it bring you joy? Does it fit? Did you wear it this season? Does it need mending? Will you mend it?

If you answered no to any of these questions the answer is simple, let it go.

So, how much did you let go of? Don’t you feel better? I knew you could do it.

Now lets sort what is left.

Once you have it all organized you may just discover new outfits and combinations you did to realize you had. Getting dressed should be easier.

Maybe you need your clothes in coordinated outfits. If so do it.   Put your outfits together. Pick out a top and a bottom. Keep it up and choose all your outfits for the week. No early morning thinking required.small baby's room organized

This particular method works great for children who want to pick out their outfits but still need a little help.

Your closet is done now ~ on to the next one. You can do this.  What will you do next?

 

Thanks Pamela

  1. I actually cleared out my side of the one and only closet a couple of months ago. You were the catalyst for it and I thank you. My husband finally decided to start clearing out his stuff with that method and to my complete astonishment let go of articles he had kept since his early days in the Army (40+ years ago). So, once again, since it was a post YOU made that started this whole clearing…THANK YOU!
