There's nothing like an up-coming move to remind yourself how little you want to pack, move & schlep with you to your next destination. Lucky for my friend she has me to help her purge and edit those pieces in her closet that shant be making the move with her (and lucky for me I have her to feed me prosecco & spinach dip whilst we work). Plus before you get too carried away with a new life in a new city, my job is also to help you appreciate the space you DO have, in the meantime. Before: (*note frequently worn shoes strewn on the floor at the base of the closet)
The goal of today's closet consultation was to go through clothing, shoes, and accessories and make decisions on what pieces my friend would keep, give away, and what items she still was not sure of. My personal goal was to utilize the stand-alone closet to house all her most worn/loved items for easy access dressing; allowing her to grab her choice pieces easily. Since she had a side closet, we would also purge and reorganize that in a more functional way.
Once the purging began, my friend was able to make quick decisions and sky-high piles of clothing donations. While she tried clothing on, I worked to hang and organize her "keep pile." I focused on accessibility, grouping things that were alike so she could really see what she had, and clearing any clutter that would get in her way or cause stress on busy mornings.
She managed to empty her entire door shoe organizer (whoooo another goal I had for her!), clear off this top shelf, and house all her dresses and jackets together. I utilized her main closet shelving for frequently worn shoes and clutch purses.
All while keeping her floor clear and her main closet grouped by style of top and all her bottom options.
After: (*note visual awesomeness)
And finally, the proud purger and her hard work.
I'm happy to help you achieve this same sense of accomplishment, clean space, and overall grip on your closet and personal style. All it takes is a willingness to let go, have fun, and possibly a glass of bubbly ;)
