I’m a firm believer that if you are blessed enough to be able to do seasonal shopping, you should pass on the blessings by removing something from your closet every time you add something to it.
I tend to do a thorough closet cleaning every 3-4 months so I’m encouraging you to do the same!
It feels tremendous to minimalize the chaos by realizing you have far more than what you actually NEED, and you can make a difference by donating all the excess.
BEGIN BY EMPTYING YOUR CLOSET
If your closet is like mine (as you can see by that first photo, lol, it began as a disaster!)
So let’s take everything out, vacuum and start fresh!
FIGURE OUT WHAT TO KEEP, TOSS, DONATE OR SELL
When picking the clothes you want to keep, ask yourself a few questions:
Does it still fit?
Is it damaged?
Have I worn it in the last 12 months?
MAKE TWO BOXES DESIGNATED TO DONATIONS/CONSIGNMENTS
Divide clothing you don’t want to keep into a donation box and a consignment box.
HANG YOUR ‘KEEP’ SELECTIONS WITHIN SIGHT
If you can see it, you’ll most likely wear it – If you have more than what you can hang in sight, you might need to revisit step #2 up there!
USE 2-3 BASKETS FOR HEAVIER ITEMS
Get baskets to store your heavy sweaters and jackets so they don’t lose shape on a hanger.
DON’T FORGET ABOUT FLOOR/WALL SPACE
Consider a shoe rack to use your floor space effectively, or hang small shelves on your wall to display your shoes and purses where you can see them daily.
Oh – I saved the best for last!
