Rising temperatures, blossoming blooms, and sunny skies are sure signs that Spring has sprung. With the arrival of warmer weather comes the anticipated debut of shorter hemlines, frilly tanks and sexy sandals and for many of us that means a complete closet overhaul.
I am a minimalist at heart, my downtown Boston studio apartment thanks me daily for that. Any chance I have to sort through and organize my belongings is a tiny dream come true.I find myself repeating the phrase "out with the old, in with the new" far too often. Spring is my perfect excuse to clean out my closets and dressers and donate any unnecessary items that I have accumulated over the winter months. I challenge you to do the same.
With the right mindset and storage solutions you will be on your way to a less cluttered, frustration free lifestyle. Give yourself a full day to sort, launder, trash, and donate the contents of every nook and cranny of your closet and dresser drawers. No belt is looked over, and no broken heeled shoe left behind. I stick with the "Season" rule; If I am on the fence for instance about a sweater and realize I didn't wear it once through the fall and winter months it's headed straight for the donation box. This simple rule will amaze you and give you a clear understanding of just how many items you are holding onto for absolutely no reason.
After you have sifted through each piece it is time to hop in your car for a well deserved shopping trip. The assistance of four key items will have your closet looking like a page out of Home & Garden magazine.
WIth your shopping trip complete, you can guarantee to feel re-energized and ready to go. Take the remainder of the night off, a fresh start will do both you and your closet good. Begin the next day by unwrapping your newly purchased organizational products and let the put back process begin. You will begin to se results immediately, and the finished product will take your breath away.
Is this something you will be doing this spring?
