I am a firm believer that you should try to start out the day in a good mood. One of the ways that I help myself do this is to keep one of the first rooms I look at clean and tidy.
I don't want the first thought in the morning to be " ugh! I have to clean this mess up". I'd be really grumpy all the time if I woke up to this every day:
I just want to confess here that even though I have a custom closet organizer with a place for everything, my closet doesn't always look as perfect as the first photo above, but I do try to keep it neat.
One of the ways I keep it tidy is to keep what I'm currently using within reach. Since my closet doesn't have enough shelves to hold all of my shoes where I can reach them (I have 30 pair), I only keep out the ones I wear that season.
The weather is warming up so it's time to put away my winter shoes and take out my sandals.
The first thing I do is clear out the shelves and wipe them down. I also clean the shoes that are going to be put up.
I store my off season shoes up on my top shelves. Another good place is under your bed. My cardinal rule of keeping organized is to keep what you currently use within reach. This is your "prime real estate". Don't put anything in your prime real estate that you aren't using.
Bought some new wedges the other day. Can't wait to wear them!
Now that my shoe shelves are clean and organized it's time to go through my tops and pants to clear out the ones I don't use. It's also time to change out my t shirts from long sleeve to short sleeve...I keep my in season knit shirts in my baskets:

Hope your week is off to a good start!
