More on the Master Closet

Getting Organized in Your Home and Homeschool:

Dear Friends,
My post earlier on the week about the number of clothes I have caused some discussion. Yes, I really have one pair of jeans. They are the pair that fit well, and I like them. I can wear them a couple of days in a row if I like. The boys do that with their jeans as well.

However, I do have some leggings that I have worn this winter, and there are probably 5 pair of those in a dresser drawer. So I do have something I swap out for the jeans. (smile)

One thing that I do have more of than most people is my collection of running shoes. When you train to run long distances you put a wearing on a pair of shoes. If you can run in a pair of shoes and give them a day or two of not being used, they last longer. I typically run six days a week. Last summer, I rotated through 5 pair of training shoes. They were in various states of use, and I have retired two of those pair since then.

The same also is true of your regular shoes. If you can rotate between two or three pair of shoes, they will last longer. It gives them time to “spring” back up if they have a “springy” property. It helps them to “air” out, too.

As you can see from my picture, my shoes are stored in a cube-shape organizers to allow them to get air. If I stored them in the closet, they would not get as much open air. In the summer, they can get pretty sweaty on the inside, so this is the best way I found to store them.

If you have several pairs of jeans or tops or shoes, don’t beat yourself up. Your main goal in decluttering in your bedroom is to have adequate room for you to store your clothes without overflowing. If you cannot put your laundry away easily, you need to thin out how many clothes or shoes that you have.

Today’s Zone Mission is to detail clean under the bed.

Your Home Blessing for today is to empty the trash, sweep, and mop.

My menu plan for Friday is take out.

Have a wonderful weekend!
