it can be tough to keep it from looking cluttered. Bringing in anything new, be it a dress or a new pair of shoes, can be tricky as you struggle to find a spot in your already small, somewhat cramped space. I know this all too well as my master closet is teeny tiny, and I have to share what little space I have with my man. Getting it organized isn’t the issue though; keeping it organized on the other hand can be a problem.
I’ve found that besides editing my closet once a season, being smart about what I purchase is the key to keeping my small closet organized and clutter-free. I spend the majority of my wardrobe dollars on accessories (which always fit and don’t take up too much space). When it comes to clothing I shop for good basics. Whenever I purchase anything, I ask myself not only how many different ways can I wear this; but how many different seasons will I be able to use this item? For example I recently purchased this dress from Old Navy ($29.94) that I’ll be able to wear all year long!
I don’t buy anything that I can’t wear for at least two seasons. Shopping this way not only keeps my closet clutter-free, but it’s also easy on the pocket book as not everything I want to purchase will meet the criteria.
I’m currently rocking the spring metallics due to these awesome warm temps in early March!
I’m anxiously awaiting the summer though.
When fall rolls around again, I’ll be ready for some short boots.
And then winter has me completely obsessed with these horseshoe earrings! I might ask for these for Mother’s Day!
In case you’re wondering what’s up with the color washes in the background, I change my make-up with the seasons too. Rose-y pinks for spring, bronzes in summer, plum for fall, and wine in winter.
So, do you shop a certain way in order to keep your closet organized and clutter-free? Do you have any great savvy shopping tips? Who knew a $30 Old Navy dress could bring so much bang for the buck?!
Hope you had a great weekend! We cheered the CATS on to another victory, so you know ours was awesome!
