10 Easy Steps to Organize Your Clothes Closet

Written by Theresa Frasch

The clothes closet is one ofrepparttar fastest places in our households to get cluttered. Itís so easy to stick something that you donít know what to do with inrepparttar 131465 closet. After all itís out ofrepparttar 131466 way and keeping some other part of your house from becoming cluttered.

The clothes closet also becomes a storage area for clothing and accessories that are outdated, ripped, or stained. It is a holding place for clothes that might come back into style, accessories that were bargain but we donít really like, and things that cost us a fortune but that weíll never wear again because we donít like them, donít fit into them, or donít lead that kind of life anymore.

Cleaning out a clothes closet can hurt. Itís hard to throw away stuff that is still good, stuff that cost us a lot of money. But it has to be done. So think ahead to how good it will feel to have a closet filled with all ofrepparttar 131467 things you like. Think ahead to how good it will feel to see everything in your closet. Think how nice it will feel to look in your closet and not feel guilty about all those things you have but canít wear anymore. Be ruthless, have fun and organize your closet!

1.Begin by gettingrepparttar 131468 proper supplies: plenty of hangers, an expandable shoe rack, belt hook, tie rack, a closet doubler (another hanging clothes rod that hangs from your current one) or pants and skirts hangers (the kind that hold multiple pairs). I preferrepparttar 131469 closet doubler; I find it more convenient to see and get torepparttar 131470 clothes I want.

2.Remove everything (yes, everything!) from your closet. As you remove items place them in one of five piles: KEEP, REPAIR, GIVE AWAY, THROW AWAY, MOVE.

3.The KEEP pile should be things that belong in your closet that meet these criterions: they fit you now, you likerepparttar 131471 way you look in them now and they are in style now. This includes all clothes, shoes, hats, belts, ties, etc. If you are not sure it fits, try it on now. Your KEEP pile should includerepparttar 131472 clothes you love to wear andrepparttar 131473 clothes that make you feel good when you wear them. It should include your special occasion wardrobe, too, as long as it meetsrepparttar 131474 above criterion.

4.The REPAIR pile is for those items you want to keep but need a repair. If you are sure you will wear them once they are repaired, take them to your local dry cleaner or alterations shop and have them repaired. If you can (and want) to dorepparttar 131475 work yourself, gatherrepparttar 131476 repair items, put them in your repair center and give yourself two weeks to repair them. If you havenít gotten around to them by then, gather uprepparttar 131477 clothing and donate it.

What Are You Going to Make Life Mean For You?

We have choices in life. We can look forrepparttar lesson and beauty in every single thing that happens to us. Or we can go through life kicking and screaming about everything that has, is, could, or will happen to us. Life is meant to be a journey, something we learn from and grow from. It is meant to be a journey of self discovery and joy, but you have to choose.

Two sisters growing up inrepparttar 131464 same house. Their mother is an excellent seamstress and sews for many people inrepparttar 131465 town. She also make all ofrepparttar 131466 clothes her two daughters wear which gives her great pride in dressing them inrepparttar 131467 latest fashions at a fraction ofrepparttar 131468 cost. The mother loves seeing her daughters in her creations. Sewing for her daughters is an act of love forrepparttar 131469 mother.

One sister lovesrepparttar 131470 fact that her mother sews her such beautiful clothes. She calls then her ďdesignerĒ clothes. She feelsrepparttar 131471 love and care that goes into each new garment. She feels so special putting onrepparttar 131472 new dresses and showing her friends.

The other sister hatesrepparttar 131473 fact that her mother sews her clothes. She feels others will think they canít afford store bought clothes. She hates being even slightly different than her friends even though it means she has nicer clothes. She is embarrassed and feels that if her mother really cared she would buy her clothes fromrepparttar 131474 store.

Two sisters living underrepparttar 131475 same roof, experiencingrepparttar 131476 exact same circumstances in different ways. One has chosen to make one meaning out of it andrepparttar 131477 other, a totally different meaning.

We have choices too. How will we see things in our lives, our businesses, relationships, our abundance or lack of it. What are we willing to do to seerepparttar 131478 positive side ofrepparttar 131479 coin. More torepparttar 131480 point, what are we willing to do to change how we see things?

Scientist have been studying vibrational frequencies of negative and positive emotions. There are instruments that can measure these frequencies. When we hold a negative though for more than 17 seconds our energy vibration goes down, and when we hold a positive thought for more than 17 secondsrepparttar 131481 vibration is at a higher frequency. Ever been around someone who was depressed and seeingrepparttar 131482 negative? We all have. They can literally drain our energy if we hang out with them. Onrepparttar 131483 other hand, a positive person, can lift our spirits just being inrepparttar 131484 room with them. Is it any wonder that positive people attract good things and people into their lives? Andrepparttar 131485 negative people seem to attract every negative thing to them. Every time you talk to them they have another poor me story. Itís their choice and yours too. What will you choose to make out of your life.

ďIt is never to late to becomerepparttar 131486 person you were meant to beĒ
