For the past couple weeks, I have slowly but surely been cleaning out my closet. It's like clockwork - every spring, I get this overwhelming urge to purge any excess sartorial baggage. I go through my wardrobe piece by piece, evaluating with a brutal eye to decide whether I should keep, sell or donate everything from shoes and dresses to bags and jewelry. The upside of all this purging is that it frees up space for new pieces - this year it also allowed me to reorganize my shoes, something I desperately needed to do. Until yesterday, each pair was stored in it's original box, stacked either on a bookcase or the floor in my office. I couldn't see any of my shoes, so it was easy to forget what my options were. Oh, and if I decided I wanted to wear a pair at the bottom of a stack? Retrieving them without burying myself in a pile of boxes was no easy feat. Now, the boxes are all gone and I can actually see my shoes. They're organized, and my office/closet (yep, my closet takes up an entire bedroom in my house) looks way less cluttered. What a difference a day makes.
