I may not be a prolific poster, but, I've continued on with my mission of decluttering my life and home. I discovered a nifty trick for my clothing closet. I had tried organizing by type of item, color, etc., but, nothing seemed to stick. Then, on a whim, I decided to put together several outfits and hang them together. I quickly found why some things never seemed to get worn - the usual of poor fit, nothing to go with, out of style, or just didn't really like it after all. Those items went in a couple of big ole bags and out to bless someone else's closet. Then I put together ten nice outfits for work on one side of the closet and my jeans and sweats on a shelf on the opposite wall. Something interesting happened - I like it! I hang the outfit for the next day on a hook inside my closet, before I climb into bed. No fuss, no muss. When I get home, off goes the nice work outfit, and on goes the comfy clothes.
I haven't worked through my whole closet yet, but, it doesn't seem as overwhelming as it did. It's a habit I hope to keep.
