Getting Organized

So, I know this has been covered, discussed, and rehashed on many a blog, but I was recently inspired to do a little pre-spring cleaning in the worst place imaginable.

My closet.

I’m generally a pretty tidy person ’round the house, but I really needed to weed out some clothes from my monster of a closet, but more than that, I need to be able to see what I do have – which is where the KonMari method comes in.

(The name is from the book The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo, a Japanese organizer. The book has been getting tons of press, as well as her follow-up title, Spark Joy. Yes, some of it is hokey and odd to us Westerners, but she has a lot of really great tips!)

A big proponent of her method is folding clothes (in a very certain way) and storing them to not only maximize space, but to be able to see at a glance what you have.

So far, I’ve done my “home” tee shirts (you know…those shirts you put on immediately upon getting home for work for power lounging purposes) my scarves, and my socks, but oh, it’s so satisfying!

What problem areas are you tackling this spring, friends?
