Tips for Cleaning Out Your Closet this Spring

Tips for Cleaning Out Your Closet this Spring

A great place to start your spring cleaning is to clean out your closet.

Spring is on its way, which means spring cleaning is right around the corner. A great place to start your spring cleaning is to clean out your closet. You never know what lost treasures you might find in there, and clearing it out will give you a place to put other things. 

Empty It Out

The first step in every closet clean-out is to empty it. It may seem counterintuitive to start your cleaning by making a big mess, but this first step will start to make more sense as you go on. As you’re emptying, you may start to find items that you are ready to let go of – just set those aside for now. You may also find things that you haven’t seen in a while! 

Assess the Space

Now that the closet is empty, it’s time to assess how much room you actually have. It probably looks a whole lot bigger without a bunch of stuff! Do you have enough room to hang up more of your clothes? Is there storage space in the top or the bottom of the closet? Different closets can have wildly different dimensions. 

Time to Let Go

Now comes the part that most people tend to dislike: it’s time to let go of things that you no longer want or use. If it is in season, but you haven’t worn it in the last 90 days, it needs to go. If it doesn’t fit right or you don’t like how you look or feel in it, it needs to go.  It is important to be decisive about what you really need so that you’re not re-creating your clutter. 

Saying Goodbye

Some items can be taken to a consignment shop where they will give you a little bit of money or store credit for gently used items. Many people like to donate unwanted clothing to local charities. A quick internet search will give you information about charities in your area and what items they need.
