Do you switch your Summer & Winter clothes out of your closet? Until now, I never did. This was the first time I have had extra closet space to be able to do that. While living in apts in college and our first few years of marriage, I had to stuff it ALL into one closet. Now that we don't have any kids, I can use the extra closet space to put the clothes we aren't wearing away. Less CRAMMED CLOSET = more space and an easier time finding things to wear which also = less clothes I am tempted to buy! I really struggle feeling like I have nothing to wear when its all crammed into a tiny space.
My closet does NOT look like this...so I have to be creative.
And it definitely doesn't look like this!
I do wish I had this many pair of jeans though. Don't need them, but it would be fun :)
Honestly, when I look at these celebrity closets I would love the clothes, but that's what what I am coveting after. I really covet the organization. It's a struggle for me, but that's the cold, hard truth.
Ok, though, really. Now back to the point of my post today. I think switching your winter and summer clothes out of your closet can be a GREAT way to feel like you have new clothes. Most weather changes, I feel the need to buy a few new pieces. I was very surprised this spring that I haven't felt that need! Bringing all my spring/summer clothes back downstairs really made a huge difference. I felt like I had all new clothes!! They weren't hanging in my closet for months in front of my face. I know girls, its all in my head. But, seriously, whatever it takes to save some money!!
Now this is actually what my closet looks like.
MR.P and I were so blessed by the previous owners of our house. They left their organized closet stuff for us! We have really enjoyed having specific places for our shoes :)
Ok, now I am just plain bragging. I was over at my sweet, sweet friend Savannah's house and I asked her if Tori Burch shoes ever went on sale. I had wanted a pair of gold ones, but these are just not in our budget...and probably won't ever be!! So she said she actually had a pair that didn't fit her right. Well, to my surprise she had the exact pair I had wanted!! So she practically gave them to me! I was soo excited! They have barely left my feet ;)
Savannah is always cleaning out her closet and having sales. If you are interested let me know. I can definitely help you out!
