Special Guest Blogger: Closet Organization


So glad to feature Jennifer Burnham of Pure and Simple Organizing today.  



 
I found her online, after being introduced to her on twitter and funny enough we actually have a mutual friend.  Such a small world, and an even smaller Charlotte.  Welcome Jennifer!

Closets seem to be the long lost forgotten land.  No matter how old or new your home is, my guess is, it could use some updating.  I urge you not to jump ahead five spaces and start buying the latest organizing gadget for purses, scarves, and shoes.  Start at the beginning. 

       Take everything out of the closet. 
       Start a donation pile.
       Add anything that fits the following category:
       Broken (holes, zippers, spots)
       Seen its better day
       Does not fit
       Fits but makes you feel awful
       Has not been worn in 6 months
       This goes for shoes, purses, and jewelry
       Separate clothes by season
       Off season clothes should be stored elsewhere
       Under bed storage containers
       Containers that go in another room
       Containers in the garage (labeled of course!)
       Now that you are working with current season clothes that you actually want to wear:
       Sort by style
       Tank top
       Sleeveless top
       Short sleeve
       3/4 sleeve
       Long sleeve
       Jeans
       Slacks
       Dress pants
       Dresses
       Skirts
       Take an inventory of each pile
       Now to the fun part -- organizing and putting it back!

I highly recommend customizing your closet’s design to meet your needs.  However, that might be too much to take in today.  Maybe another post -- if you all like me enough! ;)

Remember that going up the wall is the best way to utilize your space.  If you don’t have enough room in the closet, then go out.  Organize your shoes and purses outside of the closet. 

If you can find it, then you will wear it.  If it is displayed in a visually appealing way, then you are more likely to switch things up.
