Fall in Love with Organizing Your Closet

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

As the temps get cooler, you’re going to need to start finding and wearing the clothes that will keep you warm and cozy, but just because the the leaves are dropping doesn’t mean our clothes and bags need to be falling too. 

Here’s where I’m going with this…

Recently I looked into my closet and said to myself, enough is enough!

My bags, not just the ones under my eyes, were floppy and dingy and the clothes on my shelves looked like the back of my elbows. Wrinkled and in rough shape.

I figured out that the solution was to inject fillers, but not the ones you get at a spa or doctor’s office.

Step one: Injecting myself with determination and energy to get the job done. 

No more saying one day, when I have time, or have nothing else to do, because we all know how one day often turns into no day, no way, no how. 

We need to decide that one day is today and that is just what I did in just a few hours to make my closet look young and fresh again.

You can too, when you follow these easy to do tips.

Inject Fillers Into Your Floppy Handbags

Step two: Dumped out all my handbags onto my bed, and yes I do have quite a few of them, so I can see which needed more plumping up.

Most of them are loosely structured, and need stuffing to stop flopping around on my closet’s shelves.

The solution is to inject fillers into the bags by stuffing them with bubble wrap, paper, or even the t-shirts you’re no longer wearing. 

Just like your hair, they need some body to look good. 

Once filled and stuffed, the bags will stand up straight and keep their original shape. 

Gee, I wish it was that easy for our shapes.

Tip: I put them back by color, and used a clear magazine holder for the little pouches, extra straps, etc. 

Think of it has Spanx for all holding in all your loose pieces.

Then I tackled the clothes and shawls/ponchos I have folded on my shelves, or you may have them in drawers.

I folded each one neatly, so that not only can I clearly see what each piece is, but also to make it easier to decide which one to wear or pack when traveling.

To me they look so much prettier now too, and yes I’ll keep them this way.

I do have lots of leggings and jeans which I actually wear, so I organized them by color and made one pile for those in a larger size, because let’s face it…we all have those days, or weeks, or months…you get what I mean.

Not sure you noticed, but nothing from above was about which clothes I had to keep or toss.

Why you asked?

Well that’s because I stopped having an unhealthy relationship with my clothes, many, many years ago. Knowing when and how to say bye bye to the clothes that are doing you wrong are life-changing and you’ll have less mess in your closet too.
