Organizing for Your Lifestyle
If Marie Kondo was too intense for you or unrealistic for your lifestyle, meet Jane Stoller. Jane Stoller’s book Organizing for Your Lifestyle: Adaptable Inspirations from Socks to Suitcases will be the book for you. While she sings many praises of Kondo, Jane’s ideas, tips, and methods are truly a breath of fresh air, and most importantly – attainable! I also loved that the book read like a chatty conversation between girlfriends.
My favorite section of the book is on caring for your clothing and closet organization tips (turns out I was wrong about what should be folded and what should be hung!). So, in honor of that section I found a lot of closet organization eye candy.
I can dream right?
Here’s the official summary of Stoller’s book:
Organizing is a lifestyle, but it isn’t one-size-fits-all. Incorporating organizing into your life shouldn’t, ultimately, involve changing who you are, but rather maximizing it. Knowing where your favourite socks are, and having them stored correctly, means you’ll be able to wear your favourite socks more often, and look better doing it. Similarly, packing properly for a once-in-a-lifetime trip means you’ll be able to enjoy that trip even more. Remember: being organized doesn’t mean thinking about organizing all the time. Ideally, being organized means that you don’t have to think about organizing all the time–because you do it automatically, as an organic part of your everyday routine.
On a final note – I also particularly recommend this book if you travel a lot for pleasure or work – great packing and travel tips!
