Organizing and Donating

This past weekend I went home to spend some time with my parents and grandmother. It was a really great time and one of things I did was help my mom clean out her closet.

My parents are getting new built-ins for their master closet and my mom needed to move everything out of her closet. The woman has SO MANY clothes. We literally made a pile of no’s that consisted of 30 cardigans. 30! She is crazy. But she is also where I get my love of fashion.

In the spirit of getting rid of things, when I got home, I did the exact same thing!

Look at everything I donated:


That’s a bunch of shoes, dresses, skirts, t-shirts, shorts and tops. I also donated our old dishes because we got new ones when we got married and we only had 4 settings.

I dropped everything off at Goodwill and I must say, what they stand for is truly amazing.


This location was really clean, nice and had the perfect donation center where I could just pull up in my car, pop my trunk and load everything into the location. The man working there was so nice and you could feel his enthusiasm. He must have told me to 4 times, “Thank you so much for thinking of us and for your donation.” So sweet.

When I got home, I reorganized everything! Here’s my t-shirt/yoga pant/pajama drawer.


This used to be OVERFLOWING. Like, it was embarrassing and I couldn’t even bring myself to take a before picture to share. I used to tell Hubby that we needed to get another dresser because I had too many t-shirts. Well, it turns out, I just needed to get rid of some old t-shirts. He was right….don’t tell him I said that! 🙂

And here’s the closet.


It’s still overflowing because this closet is small, but it’s much better! I organized by sleeve length and then by color. OCD much?

So far, I love it and I’m keeping everything organized. And now I have more space to fill with new clothes!

How often do you clean out your closet?
