Today, your loungewear is pulling double and triple duty. It may be the same as your pajamas, workout clothes, AND your work uniform! 🤣
As wonderful as it is to have more relaxed standards for what we wear everyday, keeping it all organized is essential for our mental health, sanity, and peaceful home life. Nobody wants to see a pile of possibly clean (?) clothes and have to select based on what smells the least bad.😝
Uncomplicating your loungewear, like any other clothing you have, shows a level of self care as well as power in exerting control in a chaotic situation. 💪🏻
Seeing folded or hung clothes in order soothes your eye and relaxes your brain. 💆🏼♀️
Here are the steps to #uncomplicate your loungewear:
- Pull out all of the clothes that YOU determine to be loungewear. It could be sweatshirts, t-shirts, dresses, leggings, shorts, etc. Whatever you would put in that category should go in this pile.
- Review each piece of clothing and toss anything that is in sad shape:
–clothes with holes or stained beyond repair
–clothes with non functioning elastic 😳
–clothes that you just don’t wear anymore, even for lounging or sleeping
- Create category piles with what remains: long & short sleeve tops, shorts, pants, etc.
- Fold each pile.
Now comes the fun part!
Designate a specific place to store these clothes. What I see most often in clients’ closets, and the reason why I created a system for uncomplicating your loungewear, is that nobody creates space for loungewear.
Loungewear morphs into pajamas or merges into workout clothes.
It doesn’t have a specific home. And anything that can be stored anywhere is stored nowhere.
You don’t know where to put it away so you don’t. And there it sits in a nonspecific drawer or shelf. Or top of a dresser. Or floor. 😟
It’s a jumbled mess of randomness…..until today!
Select a specific place to store your loungewear. It doesn’t matter if it’s a drawer (or 2) or basket(s) on a shelf. Treat your loungewear like your other clothes with specific purposes. Give it a place in your closet so you know where it goes. 😄
