How to clear your closet and declutter clothing

πŸ‘šπŸ‘– We all have clothes in our homes that aren’t worn anymore:

πŸ‘• Outgrown kid things

πŸ’ƒSizes we are no longer fit into

πŸ‘˜Styles we don’t enjoy wearing

πŸ‘’“Mistakes” such as wrong size bought

πŸ₯Ώitems that Match Nothing

πŸ‘• Clothing that is Itchy, Rides Up, Rolls Down, and Other Annoyances

All these clothes TAKE UP VALUABLE SPACE in your closet. If you aren’t wearing them it’s time to remove them from your closet and your home.

Have a box for giveaways and another for trash. Refer to The Illustrated Guide to Donating Used Clothing for what is donatable and what goes into the used clothing receptacle

πŸ›Start with one drawer at a time so you don’t get overwhelmed. Sort: keep, donate, trash

♻️Last step is to get the donatables out of your home. Do it ASAP! If you have a thrift store that can pick up call them to schedule a pickup. If you have a car, load up and drop off before the weekend. For me, I do by foot with my stroller to one of the neighborhood second-hand establishements.


You will be thrilled to have the extra space. Someone will be thrilled to purchase your donations. And you’re saving the planet at the same time by keeping usable items out of the landfill. It’s a WIN-WIN.

Philosophy = Your home should be organized so you know where things are, to the degree that you feel relaxed and not stressed in your space. Method = A combination of Marie Kondo + FlyLady + my own style. YOU make the decisions. YOU decide what to keep and not to keep. I help provide clarity. Attitude = Positive, enthusiastic, non-judgmental
