If you struggle to keep your closets clean and organized, it’s time to get expert advice. Hear from our Philadelphia and South Jersey closet organizers at Closet & Storage Concepts! You’ll find tips to make decluttering and closet organization a breeze.
Know What to Get Rid Of
Our experts note that when considering your pieces, first evaluate what you’re going through. It doesn’t make sense to critique seasonal pieces especially if that season is about to start. It can be tough to remember what your favorite or least favorite items were last year. For pieces that you use year-round, consider disposing of items if you haven’t worn them in the last three to six months. Items in good condition can be given to a friend, sold at a garage sale or donated to charity. Items that aren’t in good condition should be trashed.
It’s also wise to get rid of any duplicate items you have. This includes clothing, accessories, and shoes.
Say No to Freebies
Saying no to sales isn’t easy. It’s also challenging to turn down free samples from events or gifts. However, these freebies can make your life miserable if you’ve accumulated too many of them that you don’t use in your bedroom closet. Go through the freebies you’ve acquired over the years and say goodbye to ones that you haven’t used in over a year. In the future, avoid acquiring freebies and duplicates unless you plan to use the extra items on a very regular basis.
Clean a Little Each Day
Don’t wait until your closet is a huge mess to start cleaning it out. A few minutes spent on cleaning each day can make a difference. Take a few moments to hang up clothes or sort them after you come home. Organize your knick-knacks if you see something out of place when you start your day or open your closet. Tidying up as you go can make a big difference at the end of the day.
