A Quick Guide To Decluttering Your Closet Before The Year Ends

Refresh your closet with this simple and quick decluttering guide, so you can get ready for the New Year fashion.

As the saying goes, new year, new you… And new closet. We’re not talking about completely revamping your wardrobe and spending your entire Christmas bonus on new clothes, but rather reorganizing what you already have, so it looks better and, more importantly, so it’s more functional. 

You might not believe it, but it can be a real nightmare finding yourself standing in front of your closet, facing a wall of clothes that you have no idea where it came from.

So, take a deep breath and pay attention to each one of the following tips we’ll give you to finally have the clean and organized closet you’ve always dreamed of. 

Step 1: Take everything out 

Take a few hours in the morning or the afternoon to try on every item of clothing you’re unsure about. If it still fits or it’s something you’d still wear, keep it. If not, it’s best if you get rid of it.

Step 2: Divide the items you don’t want to keep

See if there’s anything your sister or a friend would like to have, or if you should just throw it away. Remember that you can’t always donate or give away your clothes. Some clothes shouldn’t be worn anymore, and it’s best to discard them. 

Step 3: Organize by color or season 

If dividing your clothes by color and organizing them in a color palette makes it easier for you to figure out what you want to wear, do that. You could also divide your wardrobe by season, so all warm clothes are on one side and your hot weather items are on the other.

Step 4: Keep the floor uncluttered 

You can leave some boxes or shoes on the floor, but not too many, and always organized. By organizing your things this way and keeping the floor space as free and uncluttered as possible, it’ll be easier to find everything. 

Step 5: Fold away your bulkiest items

You shouldn’t hang them in the closet because they take up too much space, and they’re too heavy for regular hangers. So, the best thing to do is to fold them and keep them stored neatly in separate space, like the closet’s top shelves or even a chest of drawers.
