I am lucky enough to have grown up with a mom who is a professional organizer. All my life, I watched her working with clients to help organize their homes and make it a better place to live. This helped me to learn how to be organized in all aspects of my life, not just cleaning my house. I was always organized with my school work, as well as putting away my toys in my bedroom. And as an adult, I feel that those skills she passed on to me are super valuable, even with my career as a writer. Here at Home Addict, we’re going to go over some of the top tips I learned from my mom about keeping your life organized.
Clean Your Closet Every Single Season
This might sound excessive, but you should clean out your closet every season, or roughly every 3 months. When a new season has begun, bring your clothes out again and examine what you have available for what’s coming next. You can make three piles of “keep, donate, and thrash”. Put your clothes into these three categories. When you’re done, put everything back. You’ll be happy with the new space you’ve just created.
When you clean out your closet this often, it helps you recognize all of the items that you’re holding onto, but will never wear again. On top of that, it helps you make room in your closet for any new clothes that you may want to buy that season. My mom always looks stylish and current with her fashion, since she was always cleaning her closet. Before she donated anything, she always gave her friends the opportunity to shop her closet first. It was always a lot of fun. (via CNet)
