Unclutter Your Closet and Life
Many times closets end up becoming giant, cluttered storage spaces of miscellaneous items instead of an organized place to store clothing, accessories and shoes. Although items may be out of sight, they’re rarely out of mind. Cleaning out your closet does more than just free up storage space; an efficiently organized closet can also bring you peace of mind. In order to optimize your closet, the first step should be purging items you no longer need or use.
Ditch the Old Stuff
Most clutter found in closets are simply things that aren’t needed anymore. It can be difficult to let things go, but if you haven’t worn it or used it in over a year, you can probably part ways without long-term regret. If you want to keep it you should first ask yourself:1
- Does it fit?
- Have I worn this in the last year?
- If I was shopping right now, would I buy this?
- Will I likely ever wear/use this again?
If your answer to any of these is no, then you should part with it by either selling, donating, swapping or tossing the item in question. You can try to recoup the costs of the item by selling it or if you’re feeling generous you can donate it to a local Goodwill where another person on a budget can expand their style without breaking the bank.
