Day 23-less closet chaos and more closet order.What does your closet say about you?(31 days challenge less and more)

Today's challenge:
Organize your closet today. (Or, if that feels too overwhelming, start with just one rack.) Go through every piece and remove the things you haven’t worn in a month.  What percentage of the pieces are left?  Examine the ones you removed and ask yourself why you don’t wear them.  Not flattering?  Don’t fit?  Out of style?  Stained or torn?

Closets are meant for storage,but often times they get overstuffed and half of the things in there are forgotten.I have seen some pretty organized closets but not all of us can handle being that organized!I am not saying it should be a mess but I just don't know if I am the type to be that organized.Most of us are not organized and can feel quite overwhelmed.That is why so many of us flock to websites promising to help us get organized.We want a quick fix and usually that is not the case.

What all of this has to do with closets I don't know exactly how they correlate, except to say if you like your closet organized, go with that flow. Don't force it! If not maybe you are more free style? Whatever your style,make sure it is clean(or clean enough) and you have a system that works for you!I think because people outside the home don't peer into our closets, we relax.Closets can say a lot about ourselves and how we feel.

"What is in a closet? Heaps of unworn clothing, dresses with tags still on them, an ex-boyfriend's sweaters, or jeans that are too tight? Often what we find in a woman's closet gives us a peek into her personality, emotional state, fears or desires. How does a closet project who you are to other people, and more importantly, is your wardrobe covering up your potential?"by Marie Claire

We have all heard the expression" skeletons in our closet".This has to do with the past.You never  know when they will come out.These internal closets need cleaning too.Letting go of anything is liberating.You feel like you have a fresh start.This is what I have been trying to do the last 20 days or so.I have found a lot of "skeletons"!

Tackle your closets.Get rid of the old to make room for the new.It will feel good I promise!Whether you are rummaging through old clothes or digging deep within.
