We live in a historical home that was built in 1917. The house holds a lot of history, which I will get into in another blog post, but because of that historical significance I have been really unsure of painting…
We all have too much stuff. I have too much stuff. I was in this situation where it was taking ages to get dressed every morning. It was either that nothing matched or the clothes were not appropriate to my lifestyle anymore. Power-suit shoulders at school drop-off just don’t look quite right. As for accessories? Forget about it. I could never find my stuff! Earring studs had no match, necklaces were in perpetual tangles and some baubles were just too bright. I realized it was time to organize my jewelry and closet space NOW!
My process was simple: I asked myself if I loved the item or not. If the answer was no, then I got rid of it. By the end of my two-week process, I had 6 huge black bags of items which I have now donated to my local clothes charity. Now when I go into my closet to get ready I know the items inside are things that I actually want to wear and are things that look good on me. It feels great getting ready in the morning!
As for jewelry, I have sectioned out just a few key pieces that I will wear this autumn and winter, with the rest tucked away in tarnish free bags ready for my summer ensembles. Since there are only a few pieces of jewelry on display, I am more likely to wear what’s in front of me, instead of rummaging through an accessories avalanche. The result is looking polished and put together in no time at all, which is perfect for a busy mom’s schedule!
It is amazing how renewed I feel after letting go of the items that were no longer useful to me. if you would like further information on how I de-cluttered my stuff, check out my video below! How do you de-clutter your space?
Until Next Time
