There comes a time when we look at our closets and think, “How did all of this stuff get here?” Over the years, we accumulate more and more additions to our wardrobe, and it’s often hard to decide what deserves to be kept and what doesn’t. Closet and Storage Concepts of Las Vegas and Henderson, Nevada is bringing you some cool ideas on how you can declutter your closet efficiently and have fun doing it!
Make It Social
Spending one of your days off cleaning out your closet is most likely not at the top of your to-do list. To make it fun, invite a friend over who is looking to spruce up their own wardrobe. This way, you feel productive and get rid of your lesser-used items, and your friend gets some free, new clothes. If you want to go all out, set up a clothing swap where you and all your friends can declutter and update your closets at the same time!
Technology can come in handy, especially when you are looking to clean out your closet. If you always forget about certain clothes or need a last minute outfit idea, the app “Closet+” can help. It allows you to take and store pictures of all of your clothes and record usage so you can see how often you are actually wearing each item. This is great for fans of gradual change – at the end of every few weeks, simply donate the least used items. “Vinted” is another great app that allows you to sell your clothes using your smartphone. You will probably find that you are more likely to get rid of that pair of pants you never wear anymore if you know that you can get some cash for them.
So maybe everything in your closet is needed but it still feels cluttered. Beyond under the bed or guest room storage, there are some less conventional ways you can keep your goods while keeping your space uncluttered. Suitcases take up a lot of room, and sit empty for most of the year. Put seasonal clothing that you won’t need in the next 3 months in your luggage to maximize closet space for this season. If you are in serious need of space, compress your clothes using a vacuum-sealed bag so you can utilize every inch of square footage you have.
