Spring Organization

Spring Organization

With the nice weather… slowly.. approaching, I figured I should begin the Spring organization process. I started with my big dresser since that’s where the majority of my clothes are and I find myself searching for something in there about 5 times a day.

I decided to be a huge dork and color code my shirts… (at least the ones that fit in the dresser)… clearly I have too many. I love this idea because it gives me an instant inventory of what I have too much of, too little of… and when I need to stop shopping altogether (never) 😉 It also makes getting dressed in the morning a heck of a lot easier knowing exactly what drawer to look in.

(reds, pinks, greens, yellows)

(blues, purples, grays)

(grays, blacks, browns)

(this equals organized for my accessories… meaning all in one location and not scattered around my apartment)

Living in the other drawers of my dresser are other clothing items that can only be so organized… pants, “unmentionables”, socks etc. (p.s.- I need a method of how to not lose socks if anyone has any ideas… please and thanks!)

Next up I decided to organize my shoe rack since I wasn’t utilizing it well at all. I’m thinking of taking the entire thing down soon and buying a desk for this area anyway… but for now…

I got rid of a TON of stuff for Salvation Army…

(all packed up for Salvation Army… and now I’m trying to figure out how all of that stuff fit in my room…)

This weekend I’ll make every attempt to continue tackling the closet, then my art supplies, then the kitchen pantry. Hellooooo Spring 🙂

    Shoe organization… argg.

    I think I need to double up my shoe rack with some new shoes I am going to get soon and don’t want to push away any of my other shoes to a dark area that won’t get any love.

    Oooh, I REALLY need to do this. The hard part is deciding what to toss. I mean surely I’ll need that top SOME day.

    I love de-junking, and donating clothes and stuff to Goodwill. It just feels so cathartic!

    Please…if you find a way of preventing your socks from leaving home/getting lost in the washing machine/falling down backs of couches or wherever it is they go to…let me know. On my recent wardrobe purge, I had about 30 random socks.
