The Gift of Organization


ith New Year’s Eve on the horizon, it’s never too early to start thinking about some resolutions. When pressed for what changes I plan to make, my go-to response is usually something lame like “getting organized.” A vague resolution is great if you have no intention of actually doing it, but if you really want to make a change, make your resolution as specific as possible, and enlist some help!

What’s something specific to organize? Your closet. I’m the queen of the messy closet. My room can be Mary Poppins spotless, but slide open those closet doors and you’re in an episode of Hoarders.

One of the reasons closets can be so hard to organize by yourself is that your shoes and clothes are so personal to you. You need a fresh pair of eyes who don’t wear your wardrobe on a daily basis. If you’re Kim Kardashian, Kanye will do an overhaul on your closet and give you a whole new wardrobe. But even if you’re not Kim. K., you can still treat yourself to some A-List organizing by enlisting the help of a closet organizer.

whatever, Kim.

Two friends of mine recently started Organizing & Closets Dallas after discovering their mutual love for organizing, planning, and all things neat and tidy. These lovely ladies will organize pretty much anything in your abode, but they specialize in closets. I know this to be true because I’ve seen their color-coordinated, frighteningly efficient closets that make mine looks like an eight-year-old arranged it.

After enlisting their help, I can’t tell you how good it felt to have a clean, organized, and accessible place to pick out an outfit for the day. It’s amazing how a clean closet can positively affect other aspects of your life. A peak into someone’s closet is like a glimpse into someone’s soul. So do something good for your soul, and get organized.
