As my 30 Day challenge this month, I decided it was time to comb through my room and tidy everything. That means throwing out stuff I don’t need which is in poor condition and giving away stuff I no longer use which is in good condition. I took a few bags of clothing and various other items to goodwill last weekend. It was so easy and yet I had been putting it off for months and months. It’s also pretty refreshing to see space suddenly appear on my floor, bookcase and in my closet. I’m not there yet, but I am working towards it.
This is also helping me work towards my capsule collection, which is part of my 18 in 2018. Since I’m going through my closet it’s pretty easy for me to see what I wear on a regular basis and what I tend to let sit in my closet for months and months (Hint: It’s all the things I have which don’t fit quite right and I feel pretty meh about.) I’m still working through things, but I feel like I’ve made good progress so far. Still to do:
- Figure out where to store my art supplies, which I don’t use much, but would like to keep.
- Continue purging my closet, figure out what staple pieces I’m missing, and replace with good quality pieces.
- Get items tailored which I like, but don’t fit very well.
- Hang pictures
- Figure out what to do with the miscellany which I move from corner to corner.
A lot to do, but writing out all the steps I need to take to get things in order is really helpful! Now I have a clear path for what I need to do.
71 Days to go.
