The Closet

Do you find that you are constantly trying to clean your clutter in the closet or else where?

It gets moved from one part of the house to the next. I am always saying that "We need to have a garage sale!" or "Let’s just throw it all away!" But yet I am still running out to see what new treasures I can find at the garage sales the next week!

Okay so that problem is not going to be solved anytime soon.

The good news is there are other areas in your house that you can simplify without giving up your Saturday outings.

After shopping with us you will have the confidence to say good bye to other items that have never been a favorite.

We offer a lovely selection of clothing for women, young ladies, and little girls. We have patterns that work. The fabric and colors will change, but the basic idea will stay the same.

Our skirt is something you can wear daily with many different colors and blouses. You will be so happy with the fit, it will be easy to let go of some of the other skirts you have been just hanging onto.

I found a few articles on-line giving simple instructions on how to CLEAN OUT YOUR CLOSET! It’s time to make room for the clothes you really like.

  • Do you spend more than just a few minutes in the morning choosing what you are going to wear that day?
  • Do you feel like you always have too much stuff in your closet, but just can’t get rid of anything?
  • Is your laundry situation out of control? Do you keep buying more and more clothing because you couldn’t even find what you already had at home in all the laundry overload?

If so then here are some helpful articles are for you.

Out of the closet: A decluttering guide

The cold, hard truth is that you would have more space in your closet if you had less stuff.

According to statistics from ClosetMaid, maker of home storage and organization products, you only wear 20 percent of your clothes 80 percent of time.

Empty your closet and try on all your clothes, says Maureen Gainer, a professional organizer based in Chicago. Only those that look good and fit well should go back into the closet.

  • Or try a ranking system, says Sunny Schlenger from Fair Lawn, author of "Organizing for the Spirit" (Jossey-Bass). First are clothes you wear all the time and can't live without; second are ones you like and want to start wearing more; third are ones you're not sure about. Then just keep the first and second, she says.
  • If you haven't worn it in a year or more, let it go, says Stephanie Winston, author of "Stephanie Winston's Best Organizing Tips" (Simon & Schuster/Fireside). Exceptions can be made for formalwear and things of sentimental value.
  • Make a resolution for the future - e.g., every time you buy something new, get rid of something old, ClosetMaid advises. (Of course, amendments to this rule are allowed.)
