I’m not the world’s most organized person. I’m not. (Mom, if you’re reading this, stop rolling your eyes at the understatement.) It’s not that I’m messy (ok, maybe I’m a little of that) it’s just that I seemed to have too much stuff and not enough space!
Thankfully, I met Lindsay, who’s organization skills and patience were a perfect match for me and my room.
She spent the better part of last weekend in my room, helping me dig through piles of clothes, mountains of shoes, and boxes of junk, until I found myself knee deep in stuff I didn’t even know I had. It wasn’t that I didn’t want to be organized… I just wasn’t sure how. It was overwhelming (and yes, there were a few moments I just had to take a deep breath.)
After we tossed out 4 bags of trash and tied up 4 more bags for Goodwill, I felt… relieved. I had purged the excess of my life. And now, I actually had space to organize what was left.
I have an awkward shaped closet, and we weren’t working with a lot of space, so Lindsay had her work cut out for her. Thankfully, she’s quite creative, and knew how to handle the space.
But it wasn’t just my closet. She also found places and spaces for all of the things that were previously littering my dresser, table, and any surface I could find.
Look at what she did with my jewelry!
I’m pretty sure I was wearing the same things over and over again, because I they were the things at the top fo the random pile. Now I can actually see everything I own!
And my bathroom! Oh my bathroom. I am a “throw everything into a basket and call it a day” kind of person. Which is actually probably the most inefficient way to organize. Lindsay helped me create different baskets for everyday things, hair things, extra make up, lotions (uh, I may or may not have found 6 different bottles of tanning lotion) and travel size items. My morning routine is so much simpler, and I’m no longer digging around in search of bobby pins!
If you’re looking to organize your closet, room, or life, you should totally check out Lindsay’s blog, because her services are for hire, and I highly recommend them!! You can read her whole post on organizing my room here!
It’s nice to have a place for everything!
