Tips for cleaning out your messy closet

Tips for cleaning out your messy closet.  Do you have a messy closet?  I know I do.  So we are going to start by organizing the messy closet. Getting dressed in the mornings is hard enough when you can’t find anything to wear even when your closet is full of clothes.

Today we are going to learn that we do not need all these clothes.  We never wear 80% of our clothes so why do we need to hold on to them?  We don’t.

Take everything out of the closet and sort as you go.

You will need 4 piles

  1. Keep
  2. Store
  3. Sell
  4. Donate

Examine all your clothes and try them on to see if they still fit.  I know you really want to keep clothes that you really liked from over 20 years ago but our bodies do change over time.  You have to decide if those clothes are worth to keep or not.

Clean Closet…

After you have emptied out your closet. Put your clothes that you are keeping back on the hangers and turn your hangers backward.

Now, when you wear anything put it back to normal. In 6 months anything still turned backward, you know you don’t wear. Getting dressed in the mornings will be stress-free from now on.

Take care of the clothes that you have decided not to keep in your closet.   

Do not leave the items that you decide to trash or to donate, left in your house for one more second.

If you are like me, I will take care of it, but it ends up still being in the same spot a year later. It’s nice to organize but it’s even better to get it out of the house.
