Closet Reorganization – Cull, Consign, Discard, Donate, Done!
Still have your Madonna gloves? Four steps to organize your closet:
1. Cull — too much stuff and you can’t find anything to wear: Consign – Donate – Discard
2. Quick fix — Switch to skinny hangers to maximize closet rod space (Joy Mangano makes great ones). If you have items you rarely wear, but must keep, put them in the far corners of the closet. (Santa outfit, High School Cheerleader outfit you simply cannot part with yet!). This closet does have its challenges or being shaped live a V.
3. Quick fix — Add portable horizontal shelving and/or shelf dividers (I like the ones from Target – Espresso shown here).
4. Fun reward — Create a boutique experience in your own closet. Add some bling with your couture items. You might even want to reserve a shelf for bracelets and special jewelry.
Tips: Take your items out of the house immediately (or have your professional organizer do it for you). Don’t tempt yourself to go through the bags and retrieve anything. Make some money at the consignment shop. The next woman will love those things that gathered dust in your closet!
Take your designer items to a nearby Consignment Shop. Check, please $$$! My Sister’s Closet in Encinitas is awesome.
