this weekend i tackled my closet. somehow it always seems to get out of control. clothes piled up all over each other with minimal organization, belts and scarves intermixed in the clothing, etc. not a pretty sight. this picture is my closet about 2 years ago, but it basically looked along these lines, just with more clothes piled up.
ok, a lot more clothes piled up... it was a bit cuckoo. and i had clothes and shoes spilling out all over the floor in front of my closet. granted, i had been panicking earlier that day about which shoes to wear to my first day at work, so that accounted for at least half of the mess on the floor. anyways, needless to say it was a little out of control, and it made me feel like i had less clothes than i really have (since it was hard to find stuff). so i literally pulled out all my clothes from the shelves and went through everything. i made a separate pile of clothing that i don't wear anymore but could repurpose in some way. everything else was categorized, and then placed in an organized way back up on the shelves. to motivate myself to actually KEEP it this way, i whipped out the label maker.
yes, i label-makered my closet. josh was making fun of me "oh no...here we go with the label maker..." but i just ignored him [or made some certain hand symbols in his direction...]. i felt so much better when i was done with this project. every time i look in my closet now i get all happy, and feel super organized. the thing is i can be very good at organizing, the only problem is i have a bit of hoarder* in me that makes things get out of control.
cheers to organization. and label makers. and now that it's all public, here's to making it last! haha
*we watch hoarders all the time, i'm sort of obsessed with it. and almost every episode josh says "thats like you, jess" about some little aspect or other. thankfully my ocd husband is here to keep me in check. otherwise i might make my reality tv debut on A&E, which can never be that good...right?
