How to Organize a Lot of Clothes in a Small Closet

Weekend project done! I just fit in 206 items of clothing into an itsy bitsy closet! If you are spatially challenged but don’t want to give up your well loved wardrobe, here’s how I did this.

1. Double up your hanging space by installing an extra clothing rod in the middle.

Yeah, yeah, you’ll probably ask – but what about my long dresses? What I did was that I hung them folded on a hanger. That top clothing rod in the picture? Most of those are dresses. 🙂

Declutter Start-Up Tips

Living Clutter Free (2)
I cannot understate the benefits of a decluttered home or work space. I assure you, once you start your organized life, you will understand why I am such a big advocate of it. You have less to clean, less stress, more space and more energy for your passions or the people you love. But to start is a big challenge for many. So where in the world should you begin?
January is a great time to start a de-cluttering project. It might feel overwhelming at the start but I promise you, it’s not as painful as it seems to be. Here are some tips to help you get started.

1.    You don’t have to do it all in a day.

If you think you can organize all your closets and all rooms in a day, no wonder you are getting anxiety attacks! You will just end up quitting the project even before you’ve begun. Start small. Just go room by room or space by space.

Remove Food Stains from your Chopping Board

For your family’s health, you should regularly clean and disinfect your plastic or wooden chopping boards.  Especially because these can be easily stained by various food.

To get your chopping boards looking like new again, give them a once a month spa treatment.  I’d like to share something that works for me.

All I need are lemons and salt.  Calamansi works, too! 

Here’s what I do:

1.    Sprinkle salt on the chopping board.

2.    Using lemon, squeeze the juice and scrub the surface of the chopping board.

3.    Leave for 20 minutes, and then scrape away the grey dirty liquid.

4.    Rinse the chopping board with a clean sponge.

The acid of the lemon works on the tough food stains while the salt helps exfoliate the surface.
