At least twice a year I try to clean out my closet. Whenever I do it just baffles me how much stuff I have accumulated or couldn’t find.
Oh hi red tank top that I wanted to wear on the 4th of July.
So that’s where I stored my summer pajamas!
Often times I store my off season clothes in random places where I can find some room. As a result, I tend to forget where those items have gone later in the year. I have been working hard to avoid this by removing items from my closet so I own less stuff. Not only does cleaning out your space give you more space, but it also helps your sanity.
Before I cleaned out my closet (and every other container with clothes), everything was bulging at the seams. I literally had no other place to store any new clothes. Turns out, I didn’t need to find more storage. I just needed to get my act together and clean out my mess! If you want to take this step and rid yourself of too much stuff, I created a list of tips for cleaning out your closet that I know will help you.
