Time to Organize your SPARKLE

Posted By: Terri
Category: Closet Organization

Tick Tock…it’s time to get your sparkle in order because someday (fingers crossed -I am forever hopeful) we will be dressing up and going OUT again!

There are so many ways to store and display your sparkle, and I’ve sourced a bevy of ways to display your beautiful items.  I am a firm believer that if you don’t see something (within  the confines of your wardrobe and especially your jewelry) you  won’t be using it as often as you could or should. So take those lovely items  out of your dresser drawers and storage boxes and display away. ..Because as they say “A little bling goes with everything.”

Let’s talk Shoe Storage

Posted By: Terri
Category: Closet Organization

Today’s topic is one near and dear to my heart…shoe storage.
In my humble opinion…you can never have enough shoes or for that matter ways to display your perfect pairs of pumps. Full disclosure.. I’m am a major shoe addict and I have a feeling I have allot of company.

Shoe storage is key when it comes to organizing one’s closet. If you’re a shoe hoarder-there is absolutely no need to be ashamed because when all is said and done I’m a firm believer that when it comes to shoes –you don’t have a shoe problem you have a storage problem. Tee He. There are oodles of  shoe storage solutions for your closet  if you happen to be short on space, I’ve highlighted  a few fabulous solutions to get you organized and free up some space for….more shoes.

 

Positioning is everything…Easy to find and view heel height when you display in this simple way.

“Raise the bar”-Install bars on the back of your closet doors or purchase already assembled hanging bars over the closet door.

A Picture is worth a 1000 words * Photograph your shoes and post on front of storage box to find in a moments notice.

Closet Organization 101…Let’s get started

Posted By: Terri
Category: Closet Organization

As the New Year begins, many of us will experience a sudden urge to clean out clutter. (Sound familiar?) Many of us adopt a mindset of “out with the old and in with the new” and we’re all ready for a fresh start!  It’s time to dig deep into your closet and starting the process of  (dah dah dah)DECLUTTERING. I know that doesn’t sound like FUN, but it can be if you keep your eye on the prize on how happy you will be with a well organized space.

To help you get started, I am reposting an article I authored a few months ago to help motivate you and guide you along in the process. In addition I’ve posted my THREE  favorite  items to help you get your closet get in tip top shape.

Originally posted on November 17, 2020

A well organized closet not only brings you calm and clarity, but quite frankly  YOUR CLOSET  should be  a respite where you can stand back and delight in all the items that make you feel good about yourself. If your closet doesn’t do all these things then… ..perhaps we need a mini redo to get you to feel better about your closet space.  Here are a few of my top 5 tips to get you started…

First and foremost only keep items in your closet that make you feel FABULOUS. Anything that doesn’t fit, is ripped, torn or stained has got to go in addition to any items that you just don’t wear. You’ll thank me when you discard these items and make room for new items that add a dose of happy to your wardrobe.

Every closet is easier to navigate when items are hung light to dark within each category. Nuff said.

Divide and Conquer Closet drawers become a mecca of calm when your items are folded neatly and have dividers or separate compartments.

Short on space -Roll your items for additional  storage.

Shoe LOVE-Shoes are easy to navigate by style and heel height when positioned front to back next to each other.

Sweater Storage: It’s always better to fold a sweater BUT if you just don’t have the closet space they can be folded OVER a felt covered hanger so they don’t stretch out. (see below)

 

My top three essentials to keep your closet organized:

# 1 

Velvet covered hangers are  the KEY to happiness. I highly recommend using all one type of hanger for closet solidarity. My number one  preference for a neat and tidy closet -would be velvet covered hangers. You can also use wood or plastic but to insure that items don’t stretch velvet covered is best.

#2

Acrylic  Shelf Dividers are a huge help in keeping purses, sweaters and jeans in order.

*I’ve attached a link to the image below -Amazon has a wide selection at various price points to choose from.

#3

If you’re short on space for shoe storage might I HIGHLY suggest taking a photo of each pair of shoes and posting them on the front of your shoe box or step up your storage game and put your pumps into clear shoe boxes. You’ll thank me in the morning when you’re looking for that perfect pair and don’t have to open numerous boxes to find what you’re looking for….

Posted By: Terri
Category: Closet Organization

How does that saying go???

Those who have glass boxes ….MUST have allot of jewelry to store! Well, that’s not exactly the saying but it serves our purposes today because we are talking about one of the number one storage problems a girl can have..tadadada…Jewelry overflow!

We  all  LOVE our jewelry because let’s be frank.. a girl can never -ever have too much SPARKLE in her life. That being said, storage of these intricate items can sometimes be hard to navigate without a few tangled items  and we  don’t need that happening – EVER..

Soooo what’s a Glamour Girl to do?

How about storing “jewelry overflow” in an assortment of decorative and beautiful glass boxes.  It’s the perfect solution for displaying jewelry and extra space  for storing your favorite items. The glass shadow boxes shown below are affordable and oh so pretty! Display them  anywhere in your home and let them do double duty as storage and  decor.
