KonMari Closet, or, I'll try anything once (photos)

This wasn't so much a declutter as a reorganization and folding spree.

One thing I didn't like about the way things were was the big plastic bin full of summer clothes. I've never quite trusted it; I had the feeling it made things smell funny. The bin is still there, but now it's holding some other non-clothes stuff (that still needs sorting). About half the summer clothes (like t-shirts) came out and got put with the other clothes; the rest are in the blue fabric bin on the top shelf.
The hanging shelf used to be scarves but is now t-shirts plus winter gloves and hats. 
Bin of pullovers and sweater dresses. I had the dresses hanging up, but decided to fold them since they're really long pullovers.

Basket of scarves. I seemed to have a mess of scarves, so it was nice to corral them. I am donating a few that didn't spark-so-much-joy.
Drawer of folded tops

(I did do the socks etc. etc. too, but no photos--sorry.)

I've read the book, but I haven't done anything with it yet - there are still outgrown things, kid's baked cinnamon ornaments and old lavender bottles in my sock drawers, as well as the silk dress my aunt asked me to sell, but when I could only get $25 for it, I didn't go forward: she's been dead 3 years.

So, your things look pretty arranged!

It will be fun to read if you found it helpful in a few weeks and if you've kept it up.
