We hope that you had a Fun & Relaxing Labor Day Holiday!
I took a little break from social media for the past few weeks, so I hope that you’ve begun to tackle your closet and you are breathing a little easier. My break should have also given you a little more time to complete the two most difficult steps of the process, which were Sorting and Purging. Today we’re going to work on Organizing, the final step of the organizing process and to me, the step which is the most Fun!
We are in the homestretch of this journey and again, I ask that if you have any questions, concerns, ideas or suggestions along the way, simply leave us a comment.
“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 firstname.lastname@example.org. Virtual Sessions available upon request.
It’s time to begin to tackle our closet, using the organizing process. Step 1 is Sorting. Don’t forget to take a picture of your closet BEFORE you begin and I would love for you to send it to me.

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 easierhis 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! 😀
The maintenance process is very simple, in theory. There is a place for everything, and return everything to its place. This must become an unconscious habit (is that possible?). Now this may be a difficult task, especially for children, but try to keep it fun. Create a reward system for the children and the adults (my creative juices are flowing). When the toys are put back in the toy box or the tools are not left in the laundry room, or the high heel shoes are not under the couch in the family room…. you are well on your way to Order out of Chaos.
Again, this is an on-going process, but everyone must participate. Set aside some “organize time” at the end of the day (10-15 min.). Everyone puts away 5-items. When you are done…..
