When a collection becomes and obession.

I spent my lazy Sunday afternoon organizing my closet, getting rid of things, storing summer clothes, and grouping things by like color and style. Being the organizational dork that I am, it was quite the relaxing experience. What’s nice about a clean, organized closet is that you get to take inventory of what you have and often start to notice trends, like for example, I own enough little black dresses to get me through weeks of work without ever having to repeat.

Another trend I noticed? I’m not allowed to buy any more animal print… anything.  If three is a collection, what qualifies as an obsession? I think I’m there; this doesn’t even include my animal print purses or sweaters.

    Ah I love it! So funny that you don’t realize all that you have until you start organizing and start to see a pattern.

    Share your organization secrets with us! I moved into a place with a smaller closet than I’m used to and it’s bursting at the seams. I’m pretty organized and I purge regularly but i know I could make it work if I utilized the space better.

    Honestly, my secret to organization is grouping. I group things in a way that I can easily see what’s available, like patterns go together, like shapes go together. It makes everything look clean, and is much easier to find!

    Plus I rotate my clothes that I’m not wearing and store out of season clothes separately, it’s good to cut down on the amount that’s in your closet, and it’s like shopping when you open up the box and find something you haven’t worn in awhile!

    Oh my goodness! That is quite the collection. I don’t own anything animal print.

    I don’t think I ever have.

    We might be from different planets.
