There is something about an organized clean closet that can provide you some zen. The benefits are not only that your mornings would run more smoothly, but the inspiration of outfit options will multiply.
Here are some ideas to make the most out of your space: Simple Closet Cleaning Tips
Deciding what to keep or donate: Let’s start with the obvious. There are items in your closet that you very well know will never leave the hanger. Those items should be the first ones to go into the donate box. Then start to eliminate the items in your closet by organizing them based on the last time that you used them. Any items that have not been worn over two years need to be thrown into the donate box. Finally organize the items left into piles based on the wear and tear of them. You will quickly realize that some of these items are worn out and time to be retired from your closet.
Decide if the fit works: I am the first one that will admit that I have items in my closet that still have the tag on them. I loved how they looked on the hanger just not in love with how it fits on me. I am also the victim of buying things with the intentions that one day I would eventually fit into them and love them. Let’s face it we can all say that those items will probably never be worn. As we age our body goes through changes. That doesn’t mean that we are out of shape, over weight, or that something is wrong with us. I can honestly say that I love my body at my age and even though it may not be perfect it is probably the most feminine and sexy that I have felt in years. So if you are not planning on changing your weight anytime soon, it is time to let go of those clothes in your closet that are not being used.
The big questions, is it currently in style and will that trend recycle itself one day: I can admit I have a couple of pieces in my closet that I probably should of donated years ago. To my luck and surprise velvet, floral prints, and wide legged pants came into the fashion scene again. As your going through your closet you can easily spot the items that will never be back in style. There are just some trends that will never revive themselves. Part with those items and create the space for items that are currently in trend.
