Am I the only one who cleans out my kitchen pantry only to find that I have 4 bottles of ketchup? When I am disorganized I tend to buy too much of one item because I can’t see that I already own a few. The same thing happens in my closet because when i am disorganized I forge to wear the things I can’t find which is a waste of time and money!
Prioritizing yourself, your closet and your wardrobe can ultimately save you time and money. Each time I organize a closet, the client feedback inevitably includes, “I had no idea I had so many pairs of jeans”, or “I had no idea i had so many necklaces….”. When a client can stand at her closet and look in and see her clothing organized by item and color that means they can choose a well styled outfit quickly and easily. They can see their entire wardrobe all at once, which means items will have a better chance at being used and enjoyed, making the most of your money.
When you know what you have – you know what you need. My clients can shop with confidence knowing exactly what they own and what they may have over purchased or where they may have gaps in their wardrobe. I always gently encourage my clients to donate any items they are no longer enjoying, either because it no longer suits their style or because they have too many of one item to get enjoyment from each. Based on the items that still work in their wardrobe I make suggestions on what to add, giving my clients confidence that the money they do spend in the future will be on the right pieces. My recommended future purchases will round out their wardrobes, maximizing the items they already have and enjoying getting dressed with ease. -Meredith
