Tips For Getting Organized This Year

4th Jan 2013 / By Elle & Blair Fowler

It’s that time of the year when you want to start fresh, eat healthy and be a better you. A good, reliable theory for a new beginning is ‘Out with the old and in with the new.’ In addition to any New Year’s resolutions you may have, focus on getting more organized, because it will help in all aspects of your life. It may seem time-consuming at first, but in the end, it will save you more time, whether you’re getting ready in the morning or preparing for a dinner party.

Your bedroom is the best place to start getting organized, not only because it’s where you wake up every day, but also it will get you in the right mindset when you go to organize the rest of your rooms. Start small so you don’t get overwhelmed, like with your jewelry bag or makeup bag. Remember, being healthy does not always mean hitting the gym and eating right… it is taking care of your entire body, inside and out. Using expired makeup and dirty brushes is not good for you or your skin. Eye makeup especially needs to be replaced about every 3 months to prevent infections.

Once I take care of the little items, I hit up the closet. I start by going through and picking out the items that I did not wear for an entire season, like the beginning of summer to the end of summer. If I did not wear an item that is meant for that time of year, then I am obviously not going to wear it. So if I did not wear a jacket once during winter, it is an automatic donate. No excuses people!

If I wore something a couple of times during a season, but I didn’t feel confident or look good in it, then it is also going in the donate pile. Obviously if I wore something a lot then I will keep it… unless it is starting to get worn; then that’s the time to go shopping and replace it. I also don’t feel guilty shopping when I know it is something I will actually use. I replace my essentials (white, black, grey  V-necks and camis) once a year since I wear them so often. These strategies also work for my bags and shoes and even things like holiday decorations and kitchen items.

While trying to be a better you, you can help out others, too, by donating what you don’t use. Get organizing and good luck! You will feel so much better, I promise!
