When you run out of your own stuff to declutter–at least for a while–help someone else with theirs!
That’s what my mom and I did this past Saturday. We went over to a friend’s house and helped her declutter and reorganize her closet, and I have to say, the end result was amazing.
Please don’t misunderstand me, though. I’m not done with my own space yet. There’s still more to work through; I just found myself at a sort of standstill after another layer was peeled away and decided to use my nervous tidying energy to help someone else who desperately needed it. It was so great to see how happy she was when we had finished. I think her husband was more than a little excited about it, too.
Even though the closet was overflowing with options before, she had such difficulty finding and deciding what to wear each day due to its lack of order. Now, all of her favorite pieces are organized and easily accessible for daily use.
Hopefully the pictures below will give you a little motivation if you’ve been dragging on the minimalism front.
