So the last part in this house organizing series is the bedroom. Ours is small but super comfy. I know it sounds cheesy but it really is my refuge.
We don't keep any electronics in our bedroom. Many scientific studies say that even charging cell phones in the bedroom is a bad idea if you want a good nights sleep. My sleep is so precious to me that I try my best to make our bedroom like a cocoon, so no tv, computers or cell phones in ours. I've read that people will actually check their emails during the sex if their cell phone is nearby. Really? Really? REALLY.
I keep my woolens in one drawer with lavender drawer liners and lavender sachets. While they smell good they apparently do nothing to detract moths. I have a lot to learn about storing woolens safely. Here is some of the skinny on that. Thank you anon reader who supplied that link.
This is the only closet in the house and I'm sure that if we called in a closet organizing company, it would give us more storage but I'd rather have less than figure out ways to make room for more.
I'll shut up about this any day now but participating in Project 333 pretty much changed the way I looked at my wardrobe. I was always stuck on the buy, donate, buy, donate road and the Project helped get me off that bus. Now being able to look in the closet and drawers and be able to see everything easily and know that I feel confident and comfortable in every single thing...well it's pretty good. April 1st starts a new season with the Project so if you are interested, check it out.
These are the baskets inside my armoire. They hold 5 pairs of jeans, 2 pair of yoga pants, 3 yoga tank tops, a hoody and 3 t shirts. The seasonal basket is a place for me to stick scarves, hats, etc. depending on the weather. The beauty basket holds my Clairsonic charger, my small blow dryer, hairbrushes, etc. Larry uses the 2 super large drawers below these baskets and hangs a few things in the closet. Compared to him I am a clotheshorse.
So that is that. Next month I really want to address what appears to be my addiction to the internet. I've been reading articles on how to reduce your time online and guess what? You have to reduce your time online. This will be way way harder for me than giving up wine or chips. It's going to be very interesting. x
