How do you organize your closet?

     Today I organized my closet. Just one of them, the most important one and I would have done the same to the other two but I was exhausted. It is exhausting and that's probably because I'm not very good at organizing stuff. I'm good at making lists but that's not really a useful skill, is it? At some point I was on the floor in the middle of the room surrounded by clothes. Piles and piles of clothes. It was overwhelming. I kept thinking 'How will I fit all of this back into the closet? I need another closet! What have I done?!'. Then, I went on a coffee break and came back refreshed and calm:))
     I made a pile of stuff to give away and a pile of stuff to throw out. But when I was almost done with the 'project', I started digging through the 'give away' pile and took some things back. That's when I realize I might be a hoarder. There are things I never wear but I can't seem to find the power to give away. A couple of years ago I made a rule for myself: if I haven't worn an item in over a year, it's time to let it go. I think that's a good rule. If you don't have a closet the size of a two bedroom apartment, it's a good rule. Except if you're a hoarder. Then it's a stupid rule. Stupid! :))
After 3 hours, a mild panic attack and a couple of coffee breaks, I was done. I managed to put it all back in so neatly, you'd think a professional did it( an exaggeration for effect, of course). Eventually, today was a good day:)
