Closet Organization 101: Clothes & Pinterest

I love organizing.  I like to organize my home room by room and then start all over again because I just love organizing.  I love it so much that it has become a large part of my job (and no I am not the delusional dater poster child, Ashlee Frazier, "Professional Organizer").

I happen to love MANY types of clothing.  Yet there I go, out shopping, and oh, what's that?  Another navy top and black dress?  We're shocked.  Over time, I started realizing that while I had a good amount of clothing, I didn't really know what I owned and didn't realize how many outfits I could make from items in my own closet.

So I decided to take an inventory.  Think Cher in Clueless.  I went through every item of clothing, decided if I really wanted it, and then wrote it down.  I've even organized my list by type: tops, sweaters, athletic wear, dresses, skirts, etc.  I then went through my Pinterest board and looked at how many outfits I could make with what was in my closet.  I also noted which outfits I could make if I had a certain item and added that to a wishlist.  I also looked to see what was a reoccurring theme to my favorite outfits, and added them to the wishlist.  Now when I go out shopping, I know what I need and what I don't and I'm not as drawn to my staples.  I'm on a mission.

Are you like me and tend to stick in your comfort zone?  Do you wish you dressed like your clothing Pinterest board?
