The closets are one of the easiest places in a home for excess stuff to build up. The saying, “out of sight, out of mind” works well for the closet. Don’t wait any longer, declutter your space today! Here are some tips on how to get started.
A little goes along way
Getting rid of closes does not have to be an all-day event. Keep a donation bag or container somewhere in your room. If you are looking for something to wear one day and keep passing the same item that you know you would never wear, throw it in the container. As you are passing items that are worn or do not fit anymore, throw those in the container as well. You will start to notice a difference in no time.
New season = new chances
We are currently heading into the warmer months, if you did not wear an item this past winter, chances are you will not wear it next winter. It might be time to part ways with it. Throw it in the donation container! This is a great time to get rid of the items that no longer fit you as well.
Out with the old, in with the new
If you just bought 4 new clothing items for summer, get rid of 4 items that are just taking up space. Using this rule of thumb is a perfect way to stop your items from multiplying.
Donate, Donate, Donate
Instead of just throwing all of your unwanted items away, donate them to your local charity or Goodwill. What may seem like something that can never be used again can mean a lot to another person. If you are not using it, or do not even remember that you have it make sure to give it to someone in need. Also it will benefit the planet but recycling these materials instead of throwing them away!
