Below, Marie once again flaunts her organizing skills and shows us that even tricky items can be tucked away properly. Is there anything she can't fold like a dream? Play the video from Refinery29 and see for yourself!

If you've already mastered the art of folding, here are a few more organizing tips to live by:

Make sure that everything has a "home."

This concept is simply about putting things back in their proper places—or if you've got odds and ends that don't fall in any category, have one box or tray you can put them in. That way they, they're all still togeter in one spot.

Discard things that aren't anymore usable, and donate things that are.

Do you really still need that old belt with peeling faux leather? If you don't and its beyond repurposing, throw it away. Make sure to categorize your trash properly.

As for those that can still be used by others, set them aside but make sure to follow through with bringing them to the charity of your choice lest they create more clutter in your home.

Don't be afraid of mess.

While the memory of that first purge may still give you shivers because the sheer amount of work it put you through, remember that at some point you'll be faced with another decluttering session, albeit smaller. That's pefectly normal since there will always be newer, smarter additions to your wardrobe. Just think of it this way—mess doesn't necessarily mean that the objects you're organizing don't "spark joy." As long as you've learned how to make decisions to keep a streamlined closet, you won't need to worry about your collection as much.
