It’s that time again, I am reorganizing and purging stuff all over my house. I am allocating a few months if not a month to reorganize and purge every corner in my house. I have been exceptionally unhappy with the lack of organization in my house. It clutter my mind and zaps my energy.
As a runner, we collect lots of things. For me, it’s socks and headbands. Are you with me, friends? Although I seem to have my go-to favorites, I am always adding another headband to an outfit or another pair of cool compression socks.
Within the past 2 years, I have kept all my headbands in a shoe box. I felt they were easy to find. No they were not. I was always rummaging looking for a particular headband for a specific race. After dumping the box on the floor looking for a headband, I knew I had enough of that concept. As I came up off the floor I looked at my dressing scarfs on the hanger (those are my non-running obsessions. I love scarves of any color and size). I thought to myself, “I wonder….”
I grabbed a few hangers and started knotting them (onto the hanger). Using the felt covered hangers was a life saver, btw. Less than a half hour later, I have all my headbands on neatly organized on 2 hangers and I can find them, any one of them in a heartbeat. Unfortunately, this also showed me I have way too many solid black headbands. This was the problem! I couldn’t find what I was looking for (in my shoe box) so I would buy another one. Waste of $$$!!!
I am very pleased how this turned out. Of course, I will be adding more to my collection very soon!
How do you keep your headbands handy and organized? I would love to see your ideas.
