“Time to Organize”

“Tackling Our Closet”, our How-to course, was first introduced on YouTube back in January.  We have sorted & purged the clothes in our closets and NOW it’s Time to Organize…the Very BEST PART! We are going to put our clothes in ORDER!!

Remember, we want this course to be interactive, so don’t forget to take a picture of your closet BEFORE you begin each step and I would love for you to send it to us. Just in case you get stuck along the way, I may be able to provide virtual support.

It’s a journey…. taking one step and a time!

NOTE:   For Class Assignments, pictures & videos should be EMAILED (not uploaded) to cspeight8@gmail.com. Virtual Sessions available upon request.

Time to Purge!

If you are still having a hard time deciding on what To Keep or Not to Keep, then this video might help.  But don’t forget the first step of the organizing process, which is Sorting!  It makes the purging process a LOT easier….

A Journey to Order: A Man’s Closet!

Another Journey into being MORE Organized… A Man’s Closet! Recently, I had the opportunity to organize a client’s husband’s closet!  Just for the record, the organizing process is the same, no matter the space….

In my experience, if a man takes pride in his clothes, then I find that their closets are very organized. On the other hand, there are men that would prefer that their closets not be organized, generally speaking…

I welcome your thoughts and comments! 😃

The Challenge: The Husband’s Closet!

Have you struggled to organize your husband’s closet? Then Watch & Be AMAZED!!

OK! … Allow me to explain :-/ !  As I stated, I’ve been married for a long time and during the early years of our marriage, I was very diligent in organizing my husband’s closet.  I would hang up all his clothes and make sure that all the shirts & jackets were facing in the same direction.  I would separate the dress pants from the jeans and make sure that all his shoes were lined up properly.

THEN…..  Within a week, the closet would be in complete disarray and out of order!!!  But guess what!?!?, the organizer in me, YES! would organize it again!  I thought that my husband didn’t truly understand how important an organized closet was and after he tried it for a little while, he would realize how much easier his life would be?!?!?!

WELL …. after years of frustration, trying to make it work, I admitted defeat!

SO… This video was meant to help many of you, who are still trying to make it work and organize the husband’s closet.  Take the advice of an expert, you do have some choices:

  • Continue to nag and insist that one day, he will realize that he should really organize his closet; get rid of all the old clothes that he will never fit in again and toss those items that are tattered and torn… Trust me, I know!
  • Continue to organize it yourself and be frustrated to no end, because “he just doesn’t get it!”
  • OR…. resign yourself to the idea that he doesn’t really want his closet organized, save yourself all the frustration and close the door!!

I hope that this video/post has helped someone out there.  At times, you just have to pick your battles and this may be one that’s not worth fighting!!!!!!

If you still need to talk about it, just give me a call! 😀

Let’s Tackle the Closet!

If you have been paying attention, you know that to be “organized” means to be able to find what you need when you need it!  So let’s talk about tackling the closet.  It can be any closet, but I’d like to focus on the clothes closet.  It is the clothes closet that you have to face EVERY morning….

“Let’s Organize Your Closet”

Step 1 – We must know EVERY item that is in our closet.  Most of us believe that we know every item in our closet.  Do you?  I would venture to guess that you may not know every item in your closet. Some of us may have things in our clothes closet that we forgot were even there.  Is that you?

Step 2 – We must know EVERY item in our closet… which means we MUST touch every item in our closet.  Would someone please move the needle on the record?  LOL!!  But seriously, things get sucked into the black hole of our clothes closets because they get pushed further and further back where we can’t see them, thus we forget that they are there.

Step 3 – Make a decision on EVERY item in our closet… Keep, Donate, Throw Away and make the decision QUICKLY.  If you think about it too long, it is very likely that you will decide to keep it.  To the woman that has the size ___ (fill in the blank) that you are going to fit in again– it’s been 5 years — it is time to let it go.  To the man who has that favorite sweater that is two (2) sizes too small, it is time to give it away!

Step 4 – Once we have completely PURGED the entire closet, it is time for us to organize.

Step 5 – So what’s left?  There are tops, bottoms, dresses, jackets, sweaters, pants, shirts, suits, shoes, boots, etc.  Let me suggest that we put “like” items together.  Once we have grouped “like” items, it is up to you to what degree of organization that you want to go — the same color, the same sleeve length, light jackets, heavy jackets, BUT to whatever degree you go, you have to be able to MAINTAIN IT!
