Do you know what’s in your closet? Most people think they do but are often surprised by what they find.
Look at the clothes in your closet or dresser. What do you see? Most likely you’ll see a mixture of items: some you wear all the time, and others you haven’t worn for years. Some clothes you want to wear more often, and a few you’ll never wear again but are keeping for sentimental reasons.
And I’m sure if you go to your hall closet, you’ll find a mishmash of gloves, scarves and hats that you’re holding on to – and the same for your jackets and coats.
But don’t worry, Patricia Diesel, certified professional organizer and lifestyle coach is going to help you figure things out and make cleaning out your closets simple and easy.
You can see her video presentation on reorganizing your closet on the Livingston Public Library’s Youtube channel.
Here are couple of ebook suggestions to help you along in the project of decluttering your closets:
The Capsule Wardrobe: 1,000 Outfits from 30 Pieces by Wendy Mak
Declutter your closet, maximize your fashion choices, and reinvent your own personal style. Cluttered closets create cluttered lives. Too often we are left rummaging around an overflowing wardrobe, ironically at a loss for what to wear. However, owning a capsule wardrobe, which consists of a limited amount of clothing, will-believe it or not-set you free! The Capsule Wardrobe introduces thirty wardrobe essentials-tops, bottoms, footwear, and accessories-that will create the ultimate mix-and-match wardrobe for the working woman.
A new approach to living simply—starting with your wardrobe. Project 333 promises that not only can you survive with just 33 items in your closet for 3 months, but you’ll thrive just like the thousands of women who have taken on the challenge and never looked back. Let the decluttering begin!
