Closet organization in KonMari method

Published by:


There has been a lot of talk about the KonMari method. The idea is to remove everything from your life that does not bring you joy. I have been following this method, but have added a few things of my own — because it’s about sustainability. If I am not going to continue the organization after the first time I do it, there is no point.

It is important to change any tips you like to fit your life. In this video, I show you how I organize my closet — based on KonMari — but how I changed it to fit my own life.

Please let me know if you have any questions or suggestions! And let me know, how do you organize your closet?

How To Make An Easy Homemade Storage Out Of Ziploc Bags

In this video, Jill demonstrates how to make a very useful, cheap and super easy storage organizer out of Ziploc bags. This organizer is useful for many things, like storing thread, buttons and sewing supplies, medications for travel, small toys, snacks for road trips or hiking, storing small items in diaper bags and more! If you have a need to store any small items that are often easily lost, like many things that end up in kitchen junk drawers, this is a great storage option.

Jill demonstrates how to make this Ziploc bag organizer out of sandwich sized bags, but you could also use the large freezer bags as well, depending on what you need to store. Also, you can use just a few bags or as many as 10 per organizer.

Here are some of the main points in this video:

0:04 Some of the things that are easier to organize with this storage organizer.

0:33 I stapled together several Ziploc baggies. Be sure to buy the type of zip top bags with the zipper on top and not the press and seal ones or it will be too difficult to use.

0:50 How I make one of these organizers. I start with the Ziploc baggies

1:04 I cut a piece of card stock to use to hold it together to keep the baggies from pulling and tearing.

Cleaning Out My Wardrobe – Closet Organization & Capsule Wardrobe

Published by:


Cleaning Out My Wardrobe – Closet Organization & Capsule Wardrobe. Today I got through my hanging wardrobe & sort out all the clothes I want to keep and those I want to throw out. I am creating a whole wardrobe organisation series where I change over my entire wardrobe & replace it with a new fun capsule wardrobe. I love the idea of capsule wardrobes and I will not be following any strict rules but putting own spin on it. Thumbs up for Cleaning Out My Wardrobe – Closet Organization & Capsule Wardrobe

Organizing Cube Shelves

Published by:


Today’s project: Organizing Closet Maid Cube Shelves. I know some of you will miss seeing the vanity but not to worry, it’s been reincarnated into two gorgeous mirrored nightstands, something that both Michael and I are able to utilize.

The fact is, I just never spent much time actually sitting at my vanity. It was pretty and it served as makeup storage, but the space wasn’t being used often enough. I needed a dresser more than anything. In a small cottage with no storage, space is at a premium and things need to be multifunctional. My dresser is a better use of that space, it now serves as my vanity, it holds all of my clothes, including beachwear and accessories, it’ll have a nail polish drawer, makeup drawer, jewelry drawer. It just works better for me. I always test things for awhile with the outlook of nothing is set in stone. If I discover an area needs improvement to become more efficient, I tweak it or change it without hesitation.

I don’t know about you but I really dislike the sound of loud banging pots and pans! Silence is truly golden for me and that includes when I take out a pot or pan from the kitchen cabinet. In this video, I show you how to organize pots and pans to make them easily accessible (without all of the loud noise!).

In this video, I also show you how to organize lids to maximize space and again, make them easy to grab. It’s all about making things super duper easy to use. If its too hard to grab/use, chances are good, it won’t be used (or if it is, you’ll become frustrated when you access it)!
