With spring comes spring cleaning! I personally don’t like spring cleaning, because it can be such an overwhelming process. I found a way to have fun while spring cleaning your closet. Here’s how:
1. CLEAN BY CATEGORY
Start by picking just dresses, or just long sleeve shirts. Basically one category of clothing. Take ALL of the items in the category out of your closet. Be sure to look in all those hidden places that you tend to throw your clothes.
2. TRY EVERYTHING ON
Put every piece of clothing on your body, and look in a mirror. If you don’t feel great or look great, then get rid of it. You don’t need clothes that you will never grab for in your closet.
3. WEAR A NEUTRAL PALETTE
Your base outfit should be the most basic pieces of clothing. For me it was a white long sleeve v-neck and regular jeans. This allows you to recognize the each piece what it is.
4. DO YOUR LAUNDRY
Well that’s it!
5. ORGANIZE AS YOU GO
The purpose of cleaning your closet to re-organize and get rid of unwanted pieces, so organize each category as you. This will allow you to see what sections you have completed, and which need a bit more work,
6. MAKE IT FUN
This whole process could really be exhausting and overwhelming, so throw some fun in. Invite friends over, dance around to some music, and pop open a bottle of wine.
