Hello! I can’t believe it’s already Wednesday…and the second Wednesday of the month at that!
So far this year, we’ve looked at:
- How you organize for the new year in January.
- What you eat in a week in February.
- Your faves from high school/college in March. (I didn’t have a post that month.)
- How you plan/do date nights in April.
- Your hometown in May.
- Go-to summer lunches in June.
- How you keep healthy in July.
- How you do ‘every day’ cleaning in August. (I didn’t have a post last month)
This month’s topic is: organize your closet
I almost didn’t write a post because I did such a lengthy one back in July , but I also thought this post would be a good way to hold myself accountable…
Three months later, and my closet is still pretty neat and tidy:
You can’t see it in the photos, but the entire floor space is empty too. I still use that space for new purchases or Amazon packages until I try things on or return, but I can actually step into my closet to put away clothes, choose an outfit, or grab a different purse.
Also, outside of my closet I have a small antique chair that my grandma passed down to me, and it used to always be the holding spot for outfits or sweatshirts. Now, I’ve even made sure to fold or hang up clothes to keep it an uncluttered space as well.
When I did my closet reorganization, I purchased these acrylic dividers, and they were definitely the best purchase.
I told myself to go through my closet and drawers at the end of each season. Well, here we are transitioning from summer to fall, and I need to do that. I just haven’t had the time. That being said, with such a big purge in June, I shouldn’t have too much that I need to donate. I am trying to follow “one in, one out” rule as much as possible.
First world problems, but I dream of having a bigger closet at some point in my life. While I know that would be more to maintain, it would be nice to feel like I have a little extra space and to be able to easily see my clothes, shoes, purses, and more.
Speaking of clothes…tomorrow, I’m going to share a few new wardrobe purchases for fall from Target and Walmart. Come back tomorrow!
