A jumbled, jam-packed closet will stress you out every time you get dressed.  It’s important to constantly manage your closet so that you only keep the things you love.  Instead of having a ton of things you don’t like or won’t wear.  Having less in your closet means having more, because when you only have good-quality pieces that you know how to put together you will always have something to wear. Decluttering can be daunting.

If you are trying to sell your house, an organized closet, not one overstuffed with junk, is important. If you have a home in Jupiter may be time to bring out caftans and beach cover-ups and store the wintry weather clothing days.  Although if you live in Palm Beach County you know we only get a handful of sweater days

Many Americans view Cinco de Mayo as a day for margaritas and Mexican food. Contrary to popular belief, Cinco de Mayo is not Mexico's independence day. Mexico’s independence is celebrated on September 16. Cinco de Mayo commemorates the Mexican army's unlikely victory over the French forces of Napoleon III on May 5, 1862, at the Battle of Puebla.
