Ok, ok…. who has a goal of organizing this year? Is it a BIG or a SMALL goal? Either way, here is one way that you can begin. Tackling your sweaters in your closet. Its one step in getting better organized this year. Are you missing the gene for organization? Don’t feel trapped… there is an easy escape. The new year is a perfect time to get your sweaters in order! If your sweaters are in a lumpy pile, a large stack or even still with tags on them… Read on.
My Sweet Sweater plan:
1. Go through your stuff – you might have forgotten what you have! (Been there…)
2. Purge (don’t throw out – donate what you don’t want…)
3. Organize what’s left!
Here’s my GlamKaren tip: Easiest way to organize (and KEEP organized) is to place all of your sweaters into large plastic containers. Go to Target (this gives you an excuse to go…again) and pick up several large, clear boxes. I bet they might even be on sale now that the holidays are over! Once you have your sweaters ready to place into the bins take a picture of them (something simple with your iPhone … not talking about getting photo flood lights out.) Each photo should be an image of all of the sweaters that are going to be housed in each bin.
Once you have your photos, simply print out the picture and tape that on the outside of the bin. Store the bins. Now your sweaters have a happy home and you can locate them quickly and easily.
Think you’ll give this sweet sweater organization a try? You can do the photo trick on bins for anything! Think shoes, jewelry, handbags… and then you can even move this organizational trick into other rooms of your house!
