Organize with Me: Extra Linens & Off Season Clothes

Organize with Me: Extra Linens & Off Season Clothes

I am just a couple weeks off from my third trimester, and things are starting to GET REAL. The baby’s kicking, I’ve seen what her face looks like (!!!) and we have the beginnings of a nursery set-up.

And, as it starts getting warmer here in New England, it’s about time to change up our bedding.

All of which has led me to my latest organizing project: the cedar closet in our basement!

This is where, among other things, we store our extra linens and off-season clothing.

Being pregnant has brought forth a lot of changes in both types of storage!

Set Boundaries by Decluttering

Set Boundaries by Decluttering

Have you ever tried to let go of something that you knew deep down you didn't want anymore, but before you even get the chance to put it into a donation pile, a little voice inside your head convinces you to put it back?

I can't get rid of that...

I know the feeling, and many other women do too.

Maybe it's a gift from a loved one. Perhaps it's something you've been storing for a friend or family member until they get a bigger place. Or, it could even be the belongings of a relative who has passed away.

What do all of these situations have in common? They all involve other people's stuff.

How to Prepare for Downsizing

How to Prepare for Downsizing

People who are looking to downsize will often contact me for help. Whether by choice (hello new life in the city) or out of necessity, this can be an all-consuming project. It's hard to know where to even begin, let alone how to sustain the effort needed to finish.

How easy it would be if you could just rent a dumpster or two, fill it up, and call it a day. For some, that's do-able. For others, well, it's more complicated than that.
