Y’all, I did it. I KonMaried my closet just as I said I would wayyyy back in January (see https://this-coffee-life.com/2019/01/20/in-pursuit-of-joy/). I’m on spring break from teaching this week, so it was the perfect time to tackle this task. Believe it or not, after listening to The Life Changing Magic or Tidying Up via audiobook, I’ve actually looked forward to doing this project!
This is but the first step of managing stress/anxiety via simple living (aka less clutter). According to the National Institute of Mental Health https://www.nimh.nih.gov/health/publications/stress/index.shtml: “Over time, continued strain on your body from routine stress may contribute to serious health problems, such as heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, and other illnesses, as well as mental disorders like depression or anxiety.”
I don’t typically enjoy organizing, but the casting off of every item not bringing me joy was actually quite liberating. Knowing my overall purpose kept me focused and moving – it did not take long to accomplish!
5 whole bags! Clothes that are too small, clothes that are dated, clothes that bring no joy. Shoes and purses I no longer desire to wear/carry. Check out my new closet below! This entire process is very therapeutic; now if I can discard 5 pounds to go with the 5 bags…stay tuned. P.S. – check out my new farmhouse decor, bedding, and 7$ Macy’s rug below!

Do not despise small beginnings.
