Piggybacking onto yesterday’s challenge, head back into the bedroom to go thru your closet. The step to get rid of clothing are pretty straightforward, but this can still be a difficult task. Resist the urge to keep things “just in case”. Once again, refer to the chart found here to evaluate your clothing, and place “she loves me not” items in a bag to go.
If you’re up for some extra fun, place items back into the closet “rainbow style”. Red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet. Neutrals go before or after (black, beige, white). If you have a multicolored item, cha
nces are that if you hold it up, a color will stick out to you. Place this item in that section as that’s where you’re likely to search for it. If you’d like, you could make a couple of rainbows: one for winter clothes and one for summer. Whatever works for you.
When I first heard one of my favorite organizers say she did this in her closet, I thought it was pretty over the top. However, I decided to try it out, thinking that it would never stay that way. I was pleasantly surprised. In fact, everything stays in better order, and it takes so little time to get dressed in the morning!
