SEVIERVILLE (WATE) – A new year means new resolutions for many people. Some are resolving to clear the clutter in their lives and in their closet.
Donna Roland is a professional organization and image consultant in the area. She runs a business called "Faithfully Fashionable". We asked Roland for tips on how to clear the mess in your home.
"Clearing the clutter and getting organized will help us inside and out," she says, about the internal and external transformation cleaning a closet can bring you.
She says the big step is emptying out everything in your closet. Throw out what you don't need, save only the clothing and accessories that match your new image for 2013.
"Then we only have things that will help us with how we want to look when we go out in public," she explained.
When you put your clothes back in, she says organize by length and season. Keep the current season in the most accessible part of your closet. Organizing by length gives you more space beneath those clothes.
She has a nifty shoe tip- roll a magazine into your boot as a cheap substitute for a boot tree.
Investing in cheap space savers can also help you organize.
"It helps your mind as well. You have a more peaceful, soothing feeling," she explained, about a good resolution for 2013.
