But, before we get started, remember this mess?!
My closet was terrible! There was absolutely no joy coming from this space and I dreaded the thought of getting dressed each day. Thanks to the book, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing, I had the courage to tackle this mess! Let me be completely honest. This was NOT easy! It took me 4 times, yes FOUR times to finally get it right! Yes, I completely emptied this closet four times but I can tell you it was absolutely worth it!!!
*TRUTH STATEMENT - I have WAY too much stuff. I know this and have known this but working through this method has exposed this on a grand scale. I don't share this with you to show how much I have but merely to show you how much stuff accumulates if you don't deal with it. I'm sharing in hopes that someone will be encouraged and begin taking back their life from their stuff. We all deserve to be surrounded by only things that we love and bring us joy!
Here's the before/after pics you have to see to believe!
