My Closets Taunt Me

May 24, 2012 § 5 Comments

I have more on my agenda for today than you can imagine, yet it’s the thought of putting away my clothing tonight that haunts me most. I’m not sure I can face another round of push/pull/tug make room for my dress in that crush. Oh minimalistic ideal- why hath thou forsaken me?

Time to ramp up the purge process again. Who’s with me?

    One section of my closet is in that state. I’m with you! I commit to spending 30 minutes purging that part of my closet today. How about you? We’re going to be feel much better when you purge the excess clothing, Rachel!

    • Well when you put it like that….You’re on! But I have four closets to tackle and 90% of the contents of each are basic NYC black. Sigh.

        If you feel overwhelmed, then I recommend just setting your timer for 30 minutes and start with the low-hanging fruit. Be sure to actually remove the clothes that you decide to purge (i.e. get them to the charity or consignment shop and out of your apartment). I think you’ll be amazed at how much you can get done in a half hour! I’m going to try to remember to take a before picture (something I usually forget). That can be motivating.

    Rachel, I set my timer for 30 minutes and went through that section of the closet. I was able to edit enough items that it’s much easier to put clothes in and take them out. And here’s the best part: it only took me 10 minutes! (But it was only a 3′ rod.)

    Of course, I forgot to take before pictures.

    Have you made any progress in your closet?
