Live with Less and feel inspired. Project Recap: During Living with Less, Week 2: Clothes and Coat Closets, I pared-down my clothing from three bedroom closets to just the one in our master bedroom. Success, I declare! Lessons Learned: Living with Less, Week 3
- Assess: Remove everything from the closet and place it on your bed or table. Separate items by category: bath towels; hand towels; washcloths; sheets; blankets. Compare what you have and determine what is unnecessary.
- Paring Back: In contrast to the experience I had with my wardrobe, I realized there wasn't anything to remove from our linen closet; if this is your conclusion as well, it's okay. On the other hand, if you find unnecessary linens and towels, be ruthless! Remember: keep only those items that are essential, valued and beautiful.
- Organizing: Instead of paring back, I simply needed to better organize by neatly grouping similar items and folding my fitted sheets.
- Multi-Purpose Storage: Having a place to store cleaning products on the second floor was very important to me, and after organizing the shelves, I realized it was possible. I carved out a space at the bottom of the closet, making the supplies conveniently accessible.
