So true

Finer Details Concierge and Organiser Services, I agree we should to be kinder to ourselves, change takes time however making a start is the hardest but most rewarding step.

(PS The valet rod is one of my favourites too)

Absolutely many put too much pressure on themselves to be perfect in every area of life. We all have our own skill sets and should not feel inadequate if the wheels drop off occasionally. Slow and steady wins the race :-)

I adore some of those wardrobes!! I read once a way to sort your clothes was to turn the hangers with the hook facing out, and every time you wear something put it back the other way. Then once a year, you can address whether everything still facing outwards is worth keeping (bear in mind summer/winter items. Trouble is you have a year's worth of crammed wardrobe. I 've seen the Konmari videos and read her book & have to say if someone with heaps of stuff had to pick every item up and see if it sparks joy they'd get through about 2 drawers! You need to do it much more rapidly. I recommend storing shoes in those plastic shoe boxes - saves things like formal & and seasonal shoes from getting dusty. A tip - a stick of chalk in each box will absorb any moistur e and ward off musty smells. And good clothes should be stored in clothes bags, if you have jackets and coats they benefit from just the short shoulder protectors
