Hello and happy Friday! I hope you all have had a great week and making the most of whatever quarantine situation you’re in! Remember: You’re stronger that you think! There’s so much to be thankful for and it’s so important to focus on what we do have instead of what we don’t!
With everything that’s happening in the world one thing that has always been calming to me is organizing….I know I’m such a nerd! LOL There’s nothing that can get me as giddy as a school girl than organizing, filing, and cleaning! Yeah, fam I’m that girl! I’ve helped friends organize their closets, a space in their house, nothing fancy but when you have a place for everything and everything in its place it just MAKES SENSE!! Okay, I’ll stop because there may be some of you may FLOURISH in ordered chaos…just typing that gives me chills! Ha!
This past week I took to doing what I know; organizing my closet! Not only do I love doing it, I also do it with the season changes! This is one of the best ways to go through what you have, make space for things you need and get rid of anything you don’t! In today’s blog I will share 3 tips to help you organize your closet! Let’s get it!
PLAN: I knew that warmer weather in GA was coming and you just don’t want to be stuck with your Winter/Fall wardrobe in GA heat! No ma’am! I typically try to transition a little after Daylight Savings ends or begins. We also had some warmer weather last week and ya girl was HOT! I knew that when I got started some article(s) of clothing would not make it into the “next season” pile.
ORGANIZE: Like I said, I’m a nerd and so I organized my closet by color (insert palm to face emoji)!! I freak out seeing a good ROY G. BIV situation! LOL then I let myself down because I have spurts of colorful pieces then mostly whites, grays, and blacks! Hey, a girl likes what she likes! Maybe you like to put all your tops together or all of your cardigans together or maybe all of your work clothes together! Whatever works for you!
STORE: Fortunately in GA we get a good bit of all four seasons so you feel that Spring and oh mah gahhh that SUMMER HEAT! Whewww chile!! LOL I placed my warm clothes away because I won’t need them until late October to early November! You can store yours in another closet or close by if you want to pull something back out. My out of season items are stored in the basement so there’s no return until I’m ready!
That’s it! YOU DID IT! The key to not getting overwhelmed is to hold on to those statement pieces like a denim jacket, a black and/or white tee, and cute skirt that can be worn in warm or cooler temps! And if I buy another pair of jeans I’m gonna scream! HAHA! Those pieces will never go out and you can pair them with just about anything!
You can see from the left picture (Winter/Fall) to the right picture (Spring/Summer) how the clutter calms down without the heavier clothes! Did I mention I’m a Cancer?! The birthday is on THE.WAY!! I THRIVE in the warmer months how ’bout you!?
I hope this helps you get your closet game together! Thanks for reading!
