Movin' and Shakin'
Okay. So I have alot of clothes. Like...mucho. But one thing that I think I do well is keep it all organized. Everything is seperated by color (I like to use this order, W, ROGBV, Gray and then Black)...short sleeved shirts are all together, then long sleeved shirts, cardigans, dresses..tanks and t-shirts on a shelf (stacked in color order) handbags groups by color, strappy/halter and strapless tops together in bins...I have been called OCD...but I have also been called to help organize a closet or two, and it is something that I love to do.
Wow, what a nerd, huh?
But the thing is...regardless of how organized it all is...I still have to move it, which is stressful. So I have devised a way to move my clothes and accessories based on the way that I organized my closet, making use of crates and containers. I have been using this technique for a little while, and with the invention of Pinterest I have been able to see that there are other organization-obsessed folks out there doing basically the same thing. I have a few additional crazy details...but they work for me. I have been texting pictures of my packing progress to my close friends, really just so I have some accountability...and because they keep me motivated. Out of our group of friends, three of the couples are moving either this month or next, so we can all relate/freak out together.
Anyway, my friend Jen said I should share my technique so here goes. (and BTW...she is an AMAZING writer! Check out her blog, http://www.jenscrazylife.com/
