Spring Clean Your Closet Cares Away

The tulips are in full bloom with their happy yellows, mesmerizing crimson reds, and fiery oranges. That means that breezy temperatures are in and soon you’ll be able to sleep with the window cracked open. You can hang up those winter mittens and pack away your snow boots. It’s time to trade them in for rain jackets, squishy rain boots, and all things pastel. Who can’t help but feel rejuvenated at the longer days and a fresh start? It’s natural to feel the need to shed off the unnecessary, the unwanted, the unneeded. Yes, I’m speaking of purging your closet. Commit to only things you love. Let go of the things you no longer wear and organize. Tackle those boxes that have been collecting dust since you moved in two summers ago. Choose today to live the life you want to live. This article serves as a guide to spring cleaning your closet cares away.

Minimize to Maximize

Start your cleaning by immediately addressing those articles that you never wear. These are the ones that you detest, would not be caught dead in, and maybe that you feel bad giving away because Grandma Betty gave them to you, but you know you will never wear. They’re faded, may be residing with a hole or a dark pen mark that cannot be concealed. Discard what cannot be salvaged and bag up the rest to donate to a clothing drive or Salvation Army.

Organize and Prioritize

Once you’ve weeded out the obvious choices, now begin organizing your closet. It doesn’t matter if you want to go by color or by style or even occasion but commit to something. Because many blouses and shirts can be dressed up or down, it may be better to organize by shirt, skirt, and pant style, and then by colors within each style. Create a pattern of organization that makes sense to you and that is cosmetically pleasing to yourself. This will help motivate you to keep it clean.

Out of Sight Out of Mind

The best policy is to box up those items that you know you will need later and store them elsewhere. Keeping them in your closet will only make your closet cluttered  If your basement cannot hold any more bins and you lack the means of a garage, it’s time to get a storage unit with Red E Storage.
