Heather and I were stoked to tidy for a good friend and woman about town, Liz. She has two kids, so in addition to her own things, many family items had been delegated to her personal space. Since we were only doing her closet for the day, we needed to work within the limits of keeping those items stored in her closet, with the goal of preventing them from having such an impact.
Liz's stated goal was to stop feeling that her closet was "falling down around" her.
Liz had already cleared the space directly above her head bc she couldn't stand having things stored there.
Liz had her clothes pretty well decluttered, but it turns out jewelry was the category that got the best of her!
Every little thing counts! Our concentrated way of decluttering left us with empty bins! Hurrah! The goal in a full-house declutter would be to save the bins and use them in other areas of the house.
We were able to reorganize everything so that the storage is much more pleasing to the eye, all using bins that Liz already had. There was even space to create a gallery wall with her children's art!
We also pared down her jewelry enough that everything she owns, she would at some point like to wear! I took a leap of faith and broke apart one jewelry tray, fitting it into her antique dresser top, which was designed for this purpose!
Now Liz has a closet that feels more like a dream than a nightmare ;) Do you have a closet that is giving you the creeps? We'd love to hear about it!
