Spring cleaning your closet? Helpful tips to make it easier

7 May

Kate_BosworthNow that May has officially arrived, I hope you’re not like me and have put aside the task of spring cleaning your closet. Every morning I walk into it and literally just stare. I know it needs to be done, but it’s a task I’m dreading.

Looking for some tips or motivation, I came across this post from Who What Wear that has some simple and realistic tips. I may just have to write them down to remind myself. I always hold onto certain items and think, “Weeeelll maybe I’ll wear it.” And here it is a year later and it wasn’t touched.

Hopefully this weekend, I will finally cleanse my closet and feel better going into my work week and not just stare into my closet every single morning.

Remember to donate, donate, donate if you can. There’s plenty of bins around town or they’ll even pick up for you and consignment shops. Make sure you take advantage if you can.

I also found this checklist that may be helpful. Remember it’s just a guide and you may adjust it as you see fit.

Happy cleaning!

I’m determined to find a coat or coats that are wallet friendly, warm, cute and a little bit trendy.

Here’s a sneak peak at what I’ve come across in my search for my next jacket. I think I may be in trouble!
