April Showers bring May flowers! Spring is in the air, and I’m itching to do some spring cleaning – closet cleaning that is. Every year I like to clean out my own closet before I purchase new clothing for the season. Below I’ve compiled some of my closet cleaning strategies to help you in your efforts.
This is the hardest part for many, so I suggest creating three purge piles: One pile is garbage – this includes any clothing that has holes or stains; One pile to donate to a charity like Dress Your Best – these clothes are in good condition and will benefit someone in need; One pile for consignment – these are brand name clothes in good condition that you can sell through a consignment boutique.
Get all your clothes mended, altered and dry cleaned so they are ready-to-wear when you need them. It is incredible how a small investment in the clothes we already have can increase the fabulous pieces in our wardrobes.
SEPARATE WINTER FROM SUMMER
Any clothing you only wear in winter should be taken out of your closet and put away until next winter. This helps you see your summer clothes more easily and will also make creating outfits in the morning simpler.
When you have a closet filled with clothing you actually wear, you will find getting dressed everyday much more enjoyable and less overwhelming!
