dealing with too many clothes 2Are you closets bursting at the seams, drawers stuffed full and clothes hanging out on chairs, floors, in laundry baskets and other surfaces?

Imagine being able to open your closet with ease and getting dressed in the morning in peace! It can be done with a little work and some general guidance.

Imagine walking into your laundry room and seeing the floor!

So let’s get started:

Step #1 Establish a base camp – this is where you are going to gather ALL your clothes.

Step #2 Gather ALL YOUR CLOTHES – go find all your clothes and bring them into base camp. Start Step #3 at this time too!

Step #3 Do your laundry – Start your laundry and as it is done bring the clothing into base camp. (this can be happening while you are doing the other steps so you don’t lose momentum)

Step #4 Sort It Out – Put your clothing into categories that make sense to you.   Like with Like based on how you use them, when you use them and what function they serve in your life. This is a key step to getting organized, do not skip this step!!!!

Step #5 PURGE – Time to let go of all those things that you do not wear, need or love NOW. This is a tough step but make the decision based on what is serving you in your life now…does that clothing make you feel fabulous NOW, is it comfortable NOW, does it get used NOW. Let go of the past and live in the NOW!

Step #6 Get HELP if you are struggling – sometimes you just have to have someone else to be there to help you move through the process and help you make the decisions. Ask a compassionate friend, family member of hire a professional organizer to get you through the process with grace and ease. Contact me if you want my help, we can do this in person or virtually!

The myth most people fall back on is ‘I don’t have enough closet space’. From my over a decade of experience this is normally not true…most people use 20% of what they own, if you only kept what you needed and used you most likely have enough room….AND its is so much easier to maintain.
