feather ring

So the past few days have been super nice, but I still had to set aside some time to clean my room. A task that I've been putting off... pretty much all summer. I have this issue where I have way too many clothes and literally not enough space, Im sure I am not alone in this issue. I'll admit I could be on the verge of being a hoarder, I hate to ever throw anything away because 'what if one day I want this?' but stuff had to go. I managed to get rid of a bit, but the overcrowding issue still remains. Im trying to come up with better storage techniques and possibly a new wardrobe thing to hang clothes in since my closet was meant for a toddler of something. I also have an issue with wayy too many old magazines, I recently tossed a bunch, but some I just hate to get rid of, so currently a bunch are stuffed on a bookshelf.. but Im slowly losing space. We'll see how it goes in the next couple of weeks, Id really like to get things organized before I go back to school.

So my question to you readers who read all this is a) How do you keep your room/closet organized and b) what do you do with your old magazines? Toss them right away, shelf them? Any tips or pictures would be great!

I also bought another new ring, I love feathers and it was only $6 so this was an easy purchase! I got it at Aldo!

I love that leaf ring. I'm the completely opposite that you are - I LOVE cleaning and throwing away things, and I do not hoard at all. My two roommates are complete hoarders, so I'm always pressuring them to make more room by getting rid of unwanted things!

I keep my room/closet organized by, honestly, going through and getting rid of unwanted items every 4 months or so. And I pile all my magazines on a shelf because my roommates won't let me recycle them.

Just like you I keep all my stuff, what if it's needed one day? But I do have a suggestion for the magazines. I rip out pictures and articles that I like, holeunch them, and set them in a binder. The binder I organized by category...DIY, recipes, clothes, make-up etc. Good luck!
Check put my blog fr other recommendations!

I am exactly the same, a complete hoarder! I have managed to sort out my whole room this summer...apart from my wardrobe, I am leaving that until just before I go to uni I just can't face it!
In terms of magazines, I save quite a few but the rest I tear out any articles/ shoots etc I like and file them.
You've got a great blog, would love you to stop by mine.
Have a fab day.

Thanks for the tips guys, I definitely think it would help if I went through my closet more often, Im thinking I could probably make myself every 4/5 months. And I have definitely considered cutting out pages in magazines and making little collage books.. but we'll see how that goes, haha
