Hi, my name is Pete D'Alessandro. This is Expert Village. Now we're getting into the closet in the bedroom; I'm going to clear the rest of the closet. You take everything out because it's best psychologically to start with an empty space reloading what you need. You are not going to want to reload stuff that doesn't really excite you anymore so the old clothes, the stuff we are not wearing anymore isn't going to naturally wind back in here. It's going to take effort from you to put something you don't like anymore back in your closet it's going to be a much more effective clean out and organization if we start with an empty space like this. So everything else is out of here now and we have this whole pile of stuff. There are shoes everywhere, there is just tons of stuff and you really don't know where to put it all. So what are we going to do with it? We're going to have to restructure this whole space by the needs we have most often. That is what we're going to start with, get a few more drawers in the closet and we're going to start rearrange the hangs stuff and make better use of the space that we have. Because this isn't too much for the space we have, it's just not put together well.
