I have so much of everything which makes it difficult to find anything or put anything away. I have decided to declutter! If your not wearing it... there is a reason. I have always saved things, thinking that I will wear them someday. I end up not wearing or using these things anyways.
They take up valuable space for things that you actually like. I'm sure that all of you have felt or feel this way right now. Do yourself a favor, so that you can find and wear the things that you like.... and you know that look good!
a) start by going through one drawer at a time. Not everything is going to be done in one day!
b) get a buddy to help you. Something its hard to determine what looks good or whats in style! Try things on and have them help you finally do away with the things you don't use.
c) be practical. I am reorganizing my closet now and I'm making it more practical for me. Everyone has an idea of where they want everything. It makes its easy when your clothing seems to be in the appropriate place. I recommend getting an over the door shoe rack! It makes life a lot easier.
4) Organize your closet and drawers according to what the item of clothing is. Blouses with blouse, t-shirts with t-shirts and so on! Its hard when your trying to find the space and you put away everything, everywhere!
5) If you can, organize seasonally and color coated. By organizing everything according to color, it will make trying to find everything easier. Your eyes are drawn to color and memory recognition. Organizing by color will help you to better remember not only what the item is but where to find it to wear it.
6) lastly, find a consignment shop or a place to sell your clothing. If you want a few extra bucks (to buy some new storage bins or new clothing that you need or want) but maybe not get paid right away....take your clothing somewhere to sell. Or, you can always donate! Both are great things to do!
I hope this will help!
Get organized and make your busy lives easier!

IKEA also sells the storage compartments that fit perfectly inside of each drawer so that you can design and organize it the way you like.
