Just like many of you, my husband and I enjoyed binge watching the Netflix series, Marie Kondo.
Although I have always loved organizing and am usually very efficient, we decided to give our bedroom closet and dresser a facelift.
For those of you who don’t know what the heck I’m talking about… Who is this Marie Kwondo?
Let me explain…
First off, I have to start by mention… When we first started watching the show, my husband always referred to her as Marie Kwondo… He kept incorrectly pronouncing her name… 😂haha!
That’s why I added it above…
So Marie Kondo is an organization consultant, who has created a system to organize and simplify your wardrobe. She helps you “choose joy” in completing their tidying adventures. On her show, she helps families who want to clean out their homes and have more peace of mind.
If you have Netflix, go watch it!

Some of her techniques, I have have been fortunate to already know. Thanks to a great mom who taught me simple tips, while growing up.
While watching Marie’s show I was very surprised, how so many adults do not know how to properly clean, sort, fold or organize their personal belongings. Or how to involve or teach their children to help.
I’m not judging but I just assumed those were pretty common knowledge.
First, here is an image of Marie’s folding technique. Folding your close and putting them in drawers, will make it easier to see all of your items at once. It also takes up less space!
My husband didn’t believe me…and that’s why we reorganized our wardrobes. Here are our After photos.
We couldn’t fit all of our shirts in our dresser. So our dresser holds our intimates, socks, belts, workout clothes, casual tees, shorts and sweats pants.
I’m sure your first question for me is… Are those all of your clothes? No, they aren’t. Our nicer shirts, blouses, suits, dresses and jeans are hanging in our walk-in closet.
If your closet it getting cramped and you need more room. Try rearming your clothes. Try folding them! It takes up less space, I promise!
