I don’t know about you but I am not sure where the time went. It seems as if only last week It was memorial day and the unofficial start of summer and now we just had Labor day.   What happened?

One Thing That is For Sure It’s A Good Time to look at your closet.

Out goes the shorts and flip flops and in comes the boots and jeans.

Do you have clothing that you did not wear this summer? Did your size change? What about your kids?

If your kids are like other kids they have probably grown and what fit this summer most likely will not fit next summer.

So what are you going to do?

Let’s take everything out of the closet and make some determinations.
Does it fit? Keep or donate?
Did you wear it? Keep, donate or sell?
Is it stained, or damaged beyond repair? Trash

Make room in your closet.
Make a plan for hangers; when you put your stuff back in your closet make sure you leave room for empty hangers. When you take someone off the hanger to wear, make sure you pull that hanger and place it in a spot so when you do laundry you can easily grab the hangers and take them to the laundry room. (laundry is easier if you hang it up as you take it out of the dryer)

Make a plan for worn but not dirty clothes. Sometimes you might wear something but it is not clean enough to hang up with your clean clothes or and you plan to wear it again. You need to dedicate an area in your closet for these. That way you will not be inclined to drape this over a chair in your bedroom or toss it on the floor.

If everything in your closet is something you will wear and is organized, you will find that getting dressed is less of a chore.  It might also save you some time.  I am sure you can figure out something to do with you extra time.  Right?
