Would You Ever Have a Monochrome Closet?

One of the integral parts of moving is decluttering.  Parting with items in my closet has always been a challenge for me.  I have an eminent fear of consigner’s regret.  This being said, I almost always have the feeling that I’ve got a closet full of clothes and nothing to wear.  As I begin to go through my closet, I find myself wishing that I could throw (almost) everything away and start all over.  I’m starting to realize that it’s not so much that I don’t like the fuchsia silk blouse I bought two years ago and have worn four times, it’s that I don’t have much that matches with fuchsia.  This is where the monochrome closet comes in to save the day.

A monochrome closet sticks to the same palette thus, everything matches.  All you have to do is mix and match your pieces.  Sounds kind of blissful, doesn’t it?  I don’t know if I could fully commit to starting all over though, could you?  What do you’d think about this?  Let me know!

 

The Hunt is Over

I found an apartment and it’s perfect.  I felt a little like Goldie Locks during the whole endeavor.  One apartment was too small, the other too large, but this one was just right.  It doesn’t have a dishwasher or laundry in the unit and my kitchen is the size of a generously-spaced utility closet but I love every square-inch of the place.  My neighbors seem nice and the landlord is great too.  I can’t wait to get moved in and settled.

That being said, I have a little less than a month to pack.  Sorting life out into well-labeled boxes is always a daunting task but my apartment and winter weather are a more than motivating light at the end of the tunnel.

Have any helpful packing tips?  What was your first big move like?
