Dear Les is More:

I do not have the time for a full closet clean, but is there one thing that I can do now to start cleaning my closet.

Thanks! Sarah


Dear Sarah

I’m very glad you are thinking of organizing your closet. Yes, there is a very easy way to start. I want you to put a laundry basket on the floor of your closet. When you are getting ready in the morning or any other time and trying on clothes and you try on something you do not like, or does not fit anymore put it in the basket.  When the basket is filled, put in a large garbage bag, write down what is in there—and deliver to Salvation Army.  Keep doing this until you have the closet of your dreams. Good Luck.


Dear Les is More:

My purses and shoes are out of control. Any  suggestions?

Sincerely, Leah


Dear Leah:

I have a friend with your problem and she has instructed her daughter to give a purse to everyone leaving her funeral. But, I think your problem is more immediate. If you do not love them anymore donate them, sell them on eBay. or have a purse and shoe exchange with your friends. Invite all of your friends to come to your home and take a pair of shoes in they are the same size and /or a purse. You will make your friends happy and you will be too.
