Thank you all for your wished for Heidi and Genevieve yesterday. They are much appreciated!
I am joining Juliann again this month as I review my word and how I did in March.
In January, I spent my days focusing inward and in February, I focused on me.
March has been a month of questioning so many things. And, my thoughts have been turning around the “can you teach an old Kat new tricks” idiom. Yes, I have been focusing on the things I do (and don’t do) and the whys of them.
Things in my focus this month have been –
keeping my closet clean ✘
better dinner planning ✔
and moving more consistently ✔
One of those things continued to be an epic failure all.month.long. (Hello, closet!! I am looking at you!)
Being organized in the tiniest closet ever is not easy – but part of the problem might be too.many.clothes.
But help is on the way!!
Some Closet Kondo-ing is already underway and maybe some Wardrobe Styling are in order. But hopefully, next month my closet (and wardrobe) will have a new focus and stay that way!
What about you? Do you struggle with closet organization?
I used to have a problem with closet space, but a number of years ago I just got rid of so many things. I do still have to pack away winter sweaters and a few “heavy” things during the summer…and then during the winter shorts and tank tops are put in a trunk or bin. What really helped me was not having to “dress” for work – no more suits/dresses/blazers/etc. I kept a few, but the majority were donated and Voila! Space!! Good luck with curating yours.
I haven’t had an issue with my closet so much as my drawers, but I typically do a big clean-out when it’s time to change over from winter to spring/summer. Between the change in season and my weight loss, I’m really overdue for a wardrobe cull to get rid of things that no longer fit or are no longer my style. I think my bigger issue, though, is that my wardrobe could use some revitalizing. I tend to wear the same things to work over and over, mainly because they’re comfortable and appropriate, but it does get boring!
You got this-my closet sometimes looks like a cyclone went through it. I need to do another clearing out myself.
Our closet is also super small so I feel your pain. I actually did a bit clearing of it on Sunday and it feels great. Now to keep it that way!
When Beverly did her 333 with Courtney Carver I did a huge clean out of my closest. I loved how it felt to whittle down my wardrobe to the basics I loved (and wore). After retirement I did another whittling and what’s left is mostly black t-shirts and blue jeans. It’s heaven to have a space between my clothes and an easy to wear wardrobe. Good luck with your project. It’s the most freeing thing you can do!
I love organizing my closet and go through clothes every season. Now keep in mind my closet is huge so maybe I’m being lenient in my culling.
Now there’s a thought I should run with: organizing my closet. Thanks!
As you know, my closet is embarrassingly large … but I still struggle with keeping it organized. That closet curation book looks intriguing – I need to focus some attention on planning before I dive into making for the spring/summer.
I used to have major closet issues (which was really just Too Many Clothes), but several years ago I both Kon-Marie’d it and took the plunge with Courtney’s Project 333. That took care of my closet issues! (My desk, however, is an entirely different situation. . .) 🙂
This is a great focus and I wish you well on this path. I have culled my closet to the point of not have many choices which is lovely until it gets boring.
I love the Curated Closet!! I’m a little obsessed with the Perfect Capsule Wardrobe (though I don’t have one…unless jeans and T’s count?). Good luck!
