Did you know researchers at Princeton found that clutter can actually make it more difficult to focus on a particular task? Marie Kondo, the Japanese organization guru and other minimalists alike, make getting rid of all of your stuff look easy. If you are ready for some serenity in your home the best place to start is your clothing closet!
Closet Cleaning Tips:
Hint – you didn’t wear them because they’re worn out, so time to go!
It sounds simple, but can be so difficult at the same time. Two words: emotional attachment! Many find that being emotionally attached to a garment makes it hard to part ways. Especially for items worn during a special occasion. You have to decide what is more important, serenity or sentiment? If you want less clutter, follow the rule; if you haven’t worn it this year, get it out of your closet.
Always inspect your clothing each change of season for any items that have holes or just don’t fit quite right, especially items you try on time and time again but never end up wearing. Removing these will streamline getting ready in the morning and cut down on that pile of clothes that always ends up on your bedroom floor!
Another great question to ask yourself is this: if I was shopping right now, would I buy this? If the answer is no, then it is time to get that extra space back in your closet and send the item off to your local donation center.
If you still need more space after purging the unworn and unnecessary items consider renting a self storage space! Mini Price Storage understands clothing breakups can be hard!
