As the fall turns into winter and it gets cold outside, many people decide to stay indoors rather than brave the elements. What can you do when you are sequestered inside your home? Get a jump start on spring cleaning! It’s time to thoroughly clean out your closets. Start with the one you use most often.
Once the cleaning is done, you are ready to move your clothes back into the closet. Start with the hanging clothes.
Next sort through your shoes.
Now go through your folded clothes, boxes and other items you stored in your closet and put back only those things you want to keep in there. Make sure to remove any dust before placing it on a shelf or on the floor.
After everything is neatly stored away, survey the space. The goal is to keep your closet functional and inviting. This is how you want your closet to look all of the time. What you see is also the motivation you need to go through all of the clothes still on the bed and other items sitting on the floor in the room. Ideally you give everything away that did not make it in the closet. If it is too small now and you plan on losing weight, treat yourself to a new pair of jeans once you get to your goal weight. Remember there are people out there who could use the clothes that you keep stored in your closet and never wear.
Although this project may take the majority of a day, you will be very happy with the result. And you just got a jump start on your Spring cleaning. When that season comes around you will have that much more time to enjoy the beautiful weather.
