"This is my experience on using the New York Times best seller, "One Year To An Organized Life" by Regina Leeds to enhance my quality of life and establish lifestyle routines. I admire her take on getting organized one week and one area at a time because I thrive on achieving little accomplishments in moments. I hope this inspires you to get the book, follow along, and establish your own lifestyle routines as well!" - Cheli Njoku/The Cheli Experience LLC
Though I have not yet committed to a closet system, they are currently decluttered...again. The closet system has a summer deadline for September. Meanwhile - research, research, decision.
Ultimately, I focused more on making my room a pleasing sanctuary by making sure everything had its place and whatever did not belong, was reassigned or eliminated. I'm still working on aesthetic designs - temp wallpaper for an accent wall, curtains for windows, more storage for my TV and travel mementos (TV is barely used actually, but I love watching old videos - so it stays)
Another organizational hack I implement to keep the aesthetic appeal is color coordinating the clothes in my closets. I also choose to keep my winter and fall jackets in the living room coat closet to free up space in my bedroom closets.
I've always wanted a mini refrigerator in my room to keep fruit, water, and my favorite beverage. However, I'm slightly afraid it may turn me into a bedroom hermit. I may never leave! Still, worth considering.
Tools that helped me create my sanctuary:
None slip velvet hangers
Decorative Storage bins
Sturdy trash bags
Peppermint oil and Eucalyptus Candle for aromatherapy
This whole experience has been "lite" and full of imagination. The end result - serene vibes!
What steps have you taken to make your room a sanctuary?
