Quick Tip Thursday

“I need to {{fill in the blank}} my closet!”

You might fill in the blank with one of the following words:
* declutter
* organize
* clean out

. Regardless of the verb you use the frustration behind it is the same.  You are tired of having too many things you don’t love in a space that doesn’t work.  But you put off doing a full closet reorganization because it will take too much time/money/effort.

Get closer to the closet you want by following this very simple step:

The next time you pull something out to put it on and go to hang it back up because it doesn’t fit or you don’t love it or it’s out of style please for the love of all that is good do not hang it back up!

Take 10 seconds and do one of three things with it:
1. Toss it in the “donation” box (that you are going to put in your car tonight!) if it’s still in good repair
2. Toss in the trash if it’s stained or otherwise un-donatable
3. Put it in your craft stash.  NOTE: this option is ONLY for those of you who are actual crafters.  Not those of you who are only crafters in the dark recesses of your mind.  Yes, old sweaters can be used to make throw pillows & draft dodgers.  But if you don’t own a sewing machine or if the one you do own hasn’t been used in 6 months or more, DO NOT save these things.  Refer back to option 1 or 2.
