Christmas is coming faster than I can believe, and I’m feeling the urge to get things done as the holiday approaches. Amid all of the shopping, preparing for guests, and family time, it can be easy to let things become disorganized in December, so before life gets too crazy, I wanted to list out some areas to declutter in my life this month. A lot of these areas are things I wouldn’t feel the need to organize regularly, but will be especially helpful as we approach the holidays. Let’s declutter!
Well friends, it’s Halloween, there’s finally a chill in the air that seems to be here to stay, and it’s time for me to switch over my wardrobe for autumn. Yesterday I made the last purchase for my fall closet, and I’m so excited to share this capsule wardrobe with you once that piece arrives. Over the summer I began to feel like I was in a strange place with my style, and wearing a hodge-podge of pieces that didn’t feel like me 100% of the time. With this in mind, I have approached the new season with a healthy dose of mindfulness and a ruthless wardrobe edit. Let’s chat about how I went about the process.
The change in seasons always motivates me to lighten up my life, and this fall that has manifested itself in a hefty declutter of my belongings. Stuff accumulates so quickly, and I find that I need to do a good declutter at least once a year. During this most recent organization and decluttering spree, I was surprised both by how much I had collected, and how much I could say goodbye to with no regrets. I went through several categories of belongings, and today I’m sharing those with you. I’ll also be sharing my favorite apps for selling those items once you’ve decided to let them go. Let’s get rid of stuff!
We’ve come to the final part of my decluttering series, and I wanted to say thank you for all of your kind words on this little project! I’m so glad it’s inspiring you to clean out parts of your life, and I’ve so enjoyed putting this together. For the last installment in my decluttering series, I decided to tackle my shoes, handbags, and jewelry. I don’t clear out these items regularly, so I was curious to see how I used what I had, and what items were just taking up extra space in my life. Accessories are not something I own a lot of, but I was surprised at how much I had accumulated that I just don’t get use out of.

For the second part of my decluttering series, I decided to work on the clothes in my closet. As most of you know, I wear a capsule wardrobe that is fairly minimal, but as I get ready to switch things up for the next three months, now seemed like a great time to assess what I get use out of, and what I don’t. Once again, I filmed the process for you so you can see how I decide what to keep and what to part with, and I’ve also compiled a list of tips to help you clean out your own closet!
