Unf**k Your Closet

Unf**k Your Closet

I own just about every “organizer” known to man; whether it’s for clothes, jewelry, toys, kitchen ware… if they sell it, I’ve got it. And yet I feel like I’m one mason jar away from being ambushed on “Hoarders”. Where’s the disconnect?

Okay, I’m being dramatic with the “Hoarders” thing, but in all seriousness, I find myself completely overwhelmed by clutter all of the time. And apparently that’s pretty normal.

A UCLA study found a link between high cortisol (stress hormone) levels in female homeowners and a high density of household objects. That’s right, our stuff is LITERALLY stressing us the f**k out.

Our brains are only able to absorb a certain amount of visual info before the other senses kick into overdrive. When we’re in a room piled with stuff, we can’t think clearly; it causes anxiety and confusion and most importantly, we lose our energy (not to mention our productivity and creativity).

So it’s a vicious cycle of being overwhelmed by our stuff and having no energy to take care of it.

I mean YES, I know I’m supposed to throw away the three pairs of yoga pants that have holes in the ass so I stop accidentally wearing them to my kids school and embarrassing myself and my entire bloodline…but it’s easier said than done.

Enter Pinterest.

My feelings on Pinterest are mixed; in my opinion, it’s a breeding ground of low self-esteem (every time I’m on it I feel like a bad mom with a fat ass and a horrible wardrobe) but for organizing tips, it can’t be beat. Anyway, after sorting out the “fluffy” shit, I found a few ideas I like and plan on trying out this week:

HOW TO UNF**K YOUR CLOSET:

  1. Empty your entire closet; yes, all of it.
  2. Before you decide to put something back, ask yourself the following:
    1. Have I worn it in the last 6 months?
    2. Is it damaged? (RIP yoga pants)
    3. Is it your current size and style? (Imma struggle with this one)
    4. DOES IT MAKE YOU FEEL GOOD ABOUT YOURSELF?
  3. If it passes the sniff test, put the hanger in your closet backwards. Anything with the hangar backwards 6 months later needs to be reconsidered. 

Honestly, just thinking about being able to walk freely in my closet without fearing some kind of avalanche ending my life makes me excited to get started. 

So let’s do this. I’ll be posting updates on our social media accounts; follow along and maybe join in (because I KNOW you’ve got holy-ass yoga pants, too…that’s why we’re friends).
