If you constantly deal with the annoyance of too much clothing, or beginning to run out is space in your closet for anything, it might be best to have a declutter.
The first step to decluttering anything in life is to first realize what’s there. Look into your closet and see everything that’s inside.
Whether there dresses from five years ago, or a pair of shoes that are at their breaking point. Making a few mental decisions in your head from now will help you organize better later.
The next step in minimizing your closet is knowing what you're going to keep or discard. A simpler way to do this is to make about four piles:
Some clothes ultimately shouldn’t be had anymore by anyone else, like underwear with holes in it. Some clothing that you’ve barely worn can be sold on sites like Depop or eBay.
A lot of old clothes that are in ok condition can be given to thrift stores or salvation armies.
If you have a lot of things, you might possibly have a hoarding tendency and can find it hard to let go of certain items. A great way to make a decision on whether to keep something or not is to do a three-step checking process.
Not every piece like suits will be worn daily or even commonly, but they are important for the closet. An old shirt from the 80s just may not hold the same value.
Once you’ve put the items in the different categories, it’s time to double-check your keep pile. If your really looking to having a simpler closet, sometimes you will have to let go of more things.
It can be hard to let go of clothing, especially if they give us good memories. Some questions you can ask yourself about keeping certain things are:
If your choosing to sell your clothing, you can use online sites as they work the best. A good way to get buyers is to try on the clothing yourself or lay it out and take high-quality photos of it. You can as well start an Instagram or Facebook for your clothes to advertise them better.
If you want to donate your clothing, bring your clothes preferably in a bag, they won’t keep it of course. If you think you want to wash your clothes, it would be a good idea. Though most places for donations will wash their coming clothes. Some trending thrift stores though might have strict policies on what can come in or not.
To discard clothing is simple, throw it away in the garbage. Tattered clothes or extremely stained clothing are examples of things that shouldn’t be renowned.
Now that you have disposed of hopefully of much of your closet, it might seem a bit uncomfortable at first but will be more satisfying in the long run.
No more endless folding for hours, or running out of hangers to store your clothes. A lot of clothes can also lead up to them piling up on the floor.
Now with less, you can have more time with yourself.
