Spring has arrived and I’m so ready for my closet detox. I find that keeping my closet seasonal really helps me keep a nice and tidy closet. Doing so in the Winter/Fall and Spring/Summer really gives me a time to thouroughly go through each item and really contimplate whether I love it, hate it or simply don’t care for it. Life is to short to wear things you don’t love or you don’t feel good in.
Here are some tips to tidy up your wardrobe for the spring season.
Tip #1 -Get good and matching hangers. I find that when your hangers match it completely makes your closet look neater almost instantly. I personally love the velvet ones. They keep your clothes tidy and are thin and compact which works well when you need space. They are affordable as well. I bought mine at Costco. I believe it was a 50 pack for about $10.
Tip#3- Start your sort section by section. First, pull out everything you absolutely love. Pull out the items you wear the most. Everything left in your closet is negotiable.
Tip#4- When pulling out each piece of clothing ask yourself these important questions: Do I love it? Does it fit? Is it flattering? Does it fit the style I’m going for?
Tip #5-Take out anything that doesn’t fit. Whether it needs to be altered, donated or discarded. If your going to alter it, ask yourself, am I really going to alter it? Anything that you have plans to fit into someday, put it away in storage.
Tip#6-Pull out your turtle necks, wool, and fur anything! Store these items in a storage box or a vacuum sealed bag.
Tip #7-When your arranging your clothes. Hang anything that’s likely to wrinkle.
Tp#8- Group your clothing by item ( tanks, tees, blouses, button down shirts, sweaters, etc.) I also like to group by color, aways from white to black. This makes it easier to find things when I’m getting dressed.
Tip#9- Fold cotton tees, hoodies or pullovers, sportswear, leggings, jeans and any other casual pant.
I’ve parted with so much over the years and I can honestly say I never gotten rid of something and missed it. So if your asking, do I want it? I would say let it go, chances are you probably don’t. It can be a difficult task to go through all of your things and get rid of things but I hope you found these tips helpful and inspiring. Thank you for reading, I hope you have a great day!
