This week we are celebrating the National Organising Week (NOW) in Australia, which is hosted by the Australasian Association of Professional Organisers (AAPO). AAPO dedicates this week to a special topic every year and this time round it is all about wardrobes!
So, how about a little challenge? I will send an email every day of the week with an assignment (if you don’t receive my emails yet, please sign up below!). Some of the tasks will be short and sweet and others might take a bit longer. I hope you join in! If you do …
… your wardrobe will be decluttered and nicely organised by the end of the week!
You’ll even have the opportunity to benefit from a little gift if you successfully complete your challenge (only subscribers are eligible though).
If the timing is not right for you, just keep the emails and action them when it suits you. Or wait until you’ve received all the emails and get it done in one fell swoop.
Let’s get started! Here is your first challenge:
Every decluttering and organising project should start with a vision. We first need to know exactly where we want to go.
Have a good look at your wardrobe, just look and feel.
Take one or several before photos.
Grab a piece of paper and a pen and brainstorm thoughts about how you want your wardrobe to look, feel and even smell like. What should it do for you? Look nice, enable you to easily choose matching clothes quickly in the morning, etc.?
Summarise your thoughts in one or two sentences. Word it positively and keep it short and simple.
Not ideal as a vision: I don’t want a floordrobe anymore. Better: My wardrobe enables me to quickly choose matching clothes in the morning.
Put that piece of paper on your wardrobe door and let it sink in.
Done for today :-). If you care to share, please hop over to the Facebook page and leave your vision in the comment of the post or just send it to me by email, I won’t share it with anybody.
