We here at Tidy Fairy want to give a big big thank you to our fabulous friend, Gina, for being the first person to hire us for a tidy last year! While we had both done tidy jobs individually, Gina is the one who made us official!
Gina had a closet full of AMAZING clothes and accessories (mostly vintage!). The only problem was, her closet and drawers had grown so full over time that she couldn't get to all the great stuff she had. So she invited us over to help her to shop her own closet, decide which pieces bring her joy now, and organize everything for an increase in ease of use!
Check out the work the three of us did together after the jump! Just click READ MORE!
First, we took EVERYTHING out of the closet and drawers, and sorted it throughout the house by category. Then we worked through each category, one piece at a time, deciding what still sparked joy for Gina as who she is right now, today.
She did awesome work and let go of so many pieces that had finished their time with her! We were able to entirely get rid of several pieces of storage furniture that were crowding up her closet as she no longer needed them after her discard!
Once her discard was complete, we were able to step in and organize her closet, turning the small walk-in into a personal in home boutique!!
Most rewarding moment for us: Gina proclaiming "This is magic! You really ARE tidy fairies!' upon seeing the inside of her freshly tidied and organized closet!
*Slow down and work item by item. If you find yourself looking at different items while you have something to consider in your hands, take a breath and come back to the item you're holding!
*You have more than you think! You don't have to fear having no clothes left when you're done. On the contrary, you'll have plenty of clothes and they will all be things you love and can see, which will result in you getting more use and enjoyment out of the things that you have!
*Sentimental jewelry that you might not wear as jewelry anymore can make for great touches of personal decor in your closet!
*Tidying is the most fun with friends!
