Ladies when you open up your closets what words best describe what you see?BEAUTIFUL?
for me only one word fit....
January for me is "Junk OUT January" and so I started at the scariest place I can think of, my wardrobe! Most people who know me would assume that I have everything organized and that everything has "it's" place but the
( But I swear (your honor and hubby) I am a changed woman!)
Ok for starters ladies can you imagine using this size closet? No this is not my coat closet this is my closet!
When this house was first built a 101 years ago it was a luxury and now it is
Now remember when this home was built most women had 3-5 outfits total. So the woman who had this closet was very lucky!(don't laugh... it's true!)
This was the closet when I first opened the door. Scary no?
No wonder I have been tempted to stay in my PJ's! Who wants to tackle this mess just to get dressed for the dogs and chickens???(and the hubby and kids too I guess)
More pictures of my shame!
This is how many hangers I had crammed into that space! Unbelievable.
Honestly I am not sure how I accomplished that!
Any time you face such a task you have to have a friend to guide you!
(I love you Stephanie)
She was my little Jiminy Cricket
More shirts and skirts and pants and jeans...it just keeps coming!!!
Ignore the woman who hides her head in shame (still in her PJ's) Everything from the closet and drawers came out. The inventory list shocked me (actually it still does!)
Ok so now the rules. We figured for my closet space I could have 8-10 everyday outfits and 8 church outfits. That gives me church outfits all put together for 2 months. No guessing.. No frustration.... Just grab a hanger and go. For my everyday outfits I have things I can wear with jeans or spice it up a little for going out with the hubby!
My closet with it's new make over. The jewelry is hanging with the outfits so all I now have to do is get dressed!
Look you can see the FLOOR!
To accomplish this task took about 4 hours. (DON'T take this on if you don't have time to finish it) Have a trusty and true friend there to help you "LET IT GO"! (I swear I lost 10 lbs of stress just letting it go!) And donate what you don't need. I did 2 bags worth of great clothes that just DON'T work for me! Just because it is cute on a hanger doesn't mean it's cute on me... My new mantra!!! (And this one from Steph) Is it FACEBOOK worthy? (IF you don't want to post it on facebook as your profile then why BOTHER! Isn't she just amazing! She speaks my speak!
No longer does my head hang down in shame when someone shows up at my door UNEXPECTED and I smile as I try to hide that I am still in PJ's because getting dressed was just way to SCARY!!! Hope you enjoyed my journey of shame to celebration :)
