Introduction: How to Clean Out Your Closet
As the seasons change and you begin to switch your wardrobe from summer to autumn to winter clothing you may notice there are multiple items of clothing you don't wear or have never worn before. Everyone has those items and they are just cluttering up our closets. Here are some simple steps how to clean out your closet so you are left with the cloths you actually wear.
Step 1: Pick a Type of Clothing
Start with shirts, pants, shorts, skirts, dresses, or shoes.
Stick with this item until you go through all the steps.
Step 2: Follow the Flow Chart
Step 3: Start Over
Choose another type of clothing.
Repeat the steps until you have gone through all of your clothing.
Step 4: Organize
For hanging items:
- Turn the hangers backwards on the rod.
- Turn the hangers back to normal once you have worn that item of clothing
For folded items:
- Fold the item of clothing inside out
- Fold the item of clothing normal once you have worn that clothing
Wait a couple of months or until the season changes
Find the clothes that are still hanging backwards or folded inside out and remove them from your closet
Step 5: Purge
Give away the clothes you do not keep.
Drop off clothes at a local Salvation Army, Goodwill, or shelter.
