Is one of your New Year’s resolutions to get more organized? Join my favorite local organizing expert Rachel Rosenthal for an intimate workshop where she’ll provide her tried-and-true organizing tips, with an emphasis on clearing out your closet to live your best-looking, most fashionable life.

You will not only learn how to best organize your clothing and accessories, you’ll also be taught by the  consignment queens at The RealReal how to focus on investing in pieces to create a closet that you LOVE.

Bring yourself and any clothes + accessories you’d like to consign (jewelry, purses, shoes, sunglasses, etc.). The RealReal reps will be on site to sort through your loot and help to take the goodies off of your hand. You’ll free up space in your closet and put money in your pocket.


You will also receive a canvas tote, a discount code to shop and The Playbook — A how-to guide including simple steps, charts, and tips to get your entire home organized from top to bottom.
