Getting your closet organized

Hello everyone:

Are there clothes in your closet that you haven’t worn in a year? Unless you are talking about a ballgown or a tux, it might be time to get rid of that garment. If you have something hanging in the closet that you argue with yourself about every time you start to put it on, give it away or throw it away. If something hasn’t fit in years, chances are that it isn’t going to fit now; it might be out of style, so you might as well toss it. Is something shows signs of wear, do you really want to wear it? One caveat: If I have a scruffy-looking hem on an otherwise nice pair of pants, I send the pants to the cleaners and have them made into shorts.

As the saying goes, “you have to get rid of what you don’t want in your life to make room for what you do want.”  Your closet is a great place to start.  Do you really want those ugly, dated shoes with the run-down heels?

As you work through your closet, have three piles: give away, throw away, and keep. As the closet empties, dust it to remove cobwebs and clean off the shelves and floor. As you put away your “keep” pile, your closet will be cleaned, as well as cleaned out.

Do you really want a nightgown that itches, a belt that pinches, or underwear that cinches? Nope. Give them away or throw them away. Undergarments that do not fit properly will not lead to a nice-looking appearance. The battle of the bulge will throw off your whole look, so toss or give away these items, pronto.

Have fun!
