Simple Closet Organization
I am sure you have gathered that my motto is simplify. If you've noticed it seems half my posts are simple this or simple that but it is what this blog is about. I am a simple gal. Now, I love to see other people's closets and pantries and stockpiles just like any other gal, so I thought I would share my closet, such as it is. In an effort to de-clutter and again simplify my life, last year I decided to get rid of 70% of my clothing. I, like a lot of people, had things that were years old and I never wore, but just seemed to hang onto. I also stopped working so I no longer needed a wardrobe for the office.
Our 50s ranch has very little closet space so we had a wall of built ins put in our room several years ago. My hubby uses two of the closet spaces and I use the other. I am a jeans and t-shirt gal with a few cute tops thrown in for necessary occasions.
I know, not very neat nor organized but I can see what I've got. I am just not that into clothes and would rather spend $100 at the nursery than the mall. Just me! Scary huh? Also, I am very careful about what I buy now. I am striving to be very purposeful in my spending and only replace what I need to, and make sure I try on and love everything that comes home with me. No more buying because I thought it was a good deal or looked cute on the hanger, only to go to Goodwill. I would rather have the money now than the old clothes I gave away, hardly worn or never used.
I do have this high boy for storing my foldables but that is pretty much it. Our coat closet holds a few jackets and sweaters, but you don't need many of those in Southern California. Are you shocked?
