Welcome to Day 3 of the RMS 3-Day organizing series. If you haven't read Day 2 of the organizing series stop and read it now. Before we begin, make sure you print out my Organizing Series Checklist which itemizes the items that you may have in your space, let's you know the number of items you have and will help you through this journey.
Let’s get right into it.
Go back into your closet and take out all of your tops and shoes. As mentioned before, this will make the de-cluttering process so much easier.
Group your like items with like items and the odd ones together just as before.
Just like on Day 2, go through each item and ask yourself these questions:
- When's the last time I wore this?
- Does it fit my current style?
- Do I need it?
- Do I truly love it?
- Does it help boost my confidence?
Make sure you hold each item and feel it. Hold it up so it's in your face and feel the energy it's letting off. For your shoes, put them on and walk with them. Walk around your home and sink into them. If after one minute you realize the luster for them start to diminish take them off and look at them if you still don’t love them, then let them go!
Trust me, years ago this was probably the hardest thing for me to do because the more things I had the better I felt. The more I had equated to abundance which today is not the case at all for me. You realize the less stuff you have the more you have internally and to me, that’s the most important.
If you don't feel love for the item then it's time to find it another home.
For the items you are donating, which are stuff that brings no value to your life today, put them in a bag and put them in your car trunk. Once you’re done, you can take your donation bags either to your local charity. The great thing about this is your donation can be added to your next year taxes. So when you drop it off make sure you take the donations receipt from your charity of choice and store it safely.
Now it’s time to put your items back into the closet.
As in Step #1, let's decide the different categories where your tops will be placed. I am using the same dividers just so you can see where I place them. Because our tops come in a variety of variations, let's take a few minutes to differentiate.
Beginning from the left I hang my most dainty or spaghetti strap tops first. As mentioned before, I don't follow a color wheel. I just place colors next to other colors that are similar or in contrast.
After spaghetti straps, I place no sleeve tops next. After that, I place short sleeves and end with long sleeves. After the long sleeve tops, I place my blazers then coats at the end.
I fold my sweaters to prevent them from stretching and place them in bins.
That's it. You did it again. You've just completed the 3-Day series. Congratulations to everyone who was able to finish the entire series. It wasn’t an easy thing to do, but you stuck in there and did it! That shows a lot about the person you are.
Now that you've accomplished this goal treat yourself to something you love.
