I confess: I am an organizing junkie.
So much so that I am often referred to as a
closet organizer, which I am NOT.
My client’s closets are always more organized after working with me, because the contents are only the clothes that look good on them, plus I arrange her clothes using my organizing systems.
After hearing lots of buzz about the Japanese professional organizer Marie Kondo, I wanted, well I had to read her book, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing.
Turns out her decluttering or in her words tidying, suggestions for clothes are what I have been using with my clients for almost 10 years. If only I had written them down in a book form, I would already have been on the New York Time’s best seller list. My Closet Organizing System is a mini version of her book in regard to what clothes to keep, and how to hang them plus I show how to store shoes, which she doesn’t.
Sadly Marie Kondo’s book has no photos, and it is hard to duplicate organizing systems without some visuals.
You can get my system in my online course Dress Without Stress.
The best tip from her book and one I used immediately was her method of folding clothes that are stored in drawers. I was in such a hurry to use her file folding technique, that I forgot to take before pictures.
I used this system for my son’s T-Shirts and my drawer that has special scarves/wraps along with my nightgowns. I did not fold all very carefully, but these 2 drawers took me less than 10 minutes to refold. Now there is more room in each drawer and it is so much easier to see the contents. Imagine how great these items would look if I folded them carefully.
