Organization is key for a smooth, stress-free day-to-day routine. Since you begin your day by getting dressed each morning, then your closet is the best place to tackle first. Whether you’re an avid shopper or not, you’re likely to have clothes, shoes, and other various articles of clothing stashed away in your closet that you no longer need or use. So, start streamlining your daily schedule with a high effective closet purge, and you’ll make it a lot easier to find your go-to outfits each morning. Here are three items to start with.
Your clothes that you haven’t worn in a year.
Everyone is guilty of holding on to old clothes. Maybe, the item in question was a gift from a dear friend or a clearance rack steal that was impossible to pass up at the time. You might even attach fond memories to certain pieces of clothing. Even still, you must say goodbye to these items, so you can make room for newer threads. As a general rule, if you haven't worn an item in a year, it's time for it to go.
Your surplus of extra hangers.
We know it’s hard to throw away extra hangers. But, if your closet is overrun with unused hangers, you owe it to yourself to reclaim that space. Toss out any hanger that doesn’t have a dedicated item in your closet. You might also consider replacing bulky plastic hangers with hangers that are slimmer in size. This way, you can hold on to a few extra without taking up quite as much space.
Your entire luggage set.
Many people store luggage in their closet, but this method isn’t exactly efficient. In fact, bulky luggage sets take up a ton of valuable closet space! Instead of storing luggage in your closet, stash it under your bed or at the top of a closet. You can even take advantage of the empty space and store out-of-season items or extra linens in there.
