How to Declutter Your Closet

Have you been staring at that tangle of t-shirts or pile of old papers for what feels like years? Streamlining your wardrobe is a great way to enhance your living space and bring forward the items you’ve been meaning to wear for ages. It may not even take long to make these changes.

Here’s how to declutter your closet:

Small bites

Purging your closet doesn’t have to be an all-day endeavor. It often makes sense to do a little at a time. It’ll feel more manageable and you’ll be more likely to tackle the process.

Does it fit?

It almost never makes sense to hold onto an item that doesn’t physically fit you, even if you love it. Put items in this category in a pile to donate, and imagine how much joy the next person will get from that item. 

New season, new chances

When the weather changes, it’s a perfect opportunity to consider what you’ve worn and what you haven’t. If you didn’t wear it last spring, you probably won’t wear it this spring. Plan accordingly.

Plus one, minus one

If you’ve gotten a new pair of pants, only put them in the closet after removing a pair that’s collecting dust. If you spend an afternoon shopping and come home with five new things, spend some time reviewing your closet. 


Imagine how much you can keep out of the landfill by gifting your giveaways to a good cause. Your smelly socks and stained clothing provide jobs and can be recycled or reused, so don’t let them go to waste!
