How to Declutter and Organize Your Closet

If you've been reading my blog for any length of time, you've probably picked up on the fact that I post a lot about decluttering.  It's such a huge issue for so many people and one of the main reasons people feel overwhelmed.

Last week I shared 5 Tips to Help You Declutter When You're Overwhelmed With Stuff and it has been one of my most popular posts.

So today I want to share a few more tips to help you declutter!  Specifically, how to declutter closets.

Spring Cleaning Bundle!

Spring Cleaning Printable Bundle

[Update:  Sorry, this bundle sale is now over.  Some of the individual kits may be available on the websites listed though.]

I'm so excited to be partnering with Becky (Clean Mama) and Toni (A Bowl Full of Lemons) again to promote another amazing printable bundle sale!

I've had a chance to preview the bundle and it's got me almost looking forward to spring cleaning (and you all know how much I lo-ove cleaning... let alone any kind of deep cleaning!).  But I'm super pumped to get a jump on it so that when the warmer weather finally arrives (and let me tell you right now that feels like it's never going to happen!), I'll be able to head outside and enjoy it, instead of having to clean my home.

If you're thinking along the same lines as me, then this bundle is perfect for you!  It'll help you get your spring cleaning all organized... and if you have to clean you might as well do it in an organized way and get it done more efficiently right?!  OK... enough of me talking... check out what Becky and Toni have to say about this great bundle!

365 Items in 365 Days: January/February Update

How are you doing in the 365 Items in 365 Days Declutter Challenge?  It's the 49th day of the year today so if you started in January, your target is to have purged 49 items by now.  But don't worry if you've just started.  Just jump in!  It's always a good time to declutter :)

Today I'll be sharing what I've decluttered since my last update in December.  As you know I was down and out for most of January, so I didn't do a lot of decluttering, but I will work extra hard next month to catch up with my average of 1 item per day goal!  Oh, and this doesn't count for me personally, but in the last few weeks I've helped my clients declutter approximately 5 giant bags of recycling, 8 bags of garbage, 6 boxes of donations, plus a bunch of large items for garbage, donation, or giveaway.  I love my job :)

By doing these monthly updates I hope to give you ideas of things you can purge from your home!

So How Have You Been? (And a Belated Look Ahead to 2015!)

How have you been?  It's been awhile... I've missed you :)

You may have noticed I haven't posted in awhile... OK in over a month.  Yep... 5 weeks.  My last post was my top 10 posts of 2014

Why?  Well, I was sick for a good chunk of January.  I got a bronchial infection just before New Years, and it just kept kicking around.  And my body does this annoying thing sometimes when I get sick... it kind of shuts down and I have no energy.  For weeks.  It's so frustrating.  Even after the infection cleared, I was still on the couch most days, unable to do much of anything.
