So, does everyone have their cleaning clothes on??
I’m so excited about how many of you are ready to clean with Laura and me!
I love a good clean house, but spring cleaning is so tedious to me. This is going to make it so much more fun!
So, this week, we are tackling the closet!
If you are like me, this is an area that could use some help.
Plus, once we get it all cleaned up, we won’t be tempted to throw things from other areas of the house in the closet! (guilty.)
I have such a hard time getting rid of clothes and shoes. It’s an emotional event for me. So, I’ve come up with a few tips to help me and you clean it out!
Here are some of my tips for knowing when to get cosign, donate, or just toss items:
1.) You haven’t worn it in a year… or more.
Unless you are pregnant or have been pregnant and you haven’t worn it in a year you probably aren’t going to wear it. Allow someone else to! 🙂
2.) Try on clothes and shoes to make sure they still fit properly. If your jeans “shrunk” in the dryer or if a top doesn’t fit too flatteringly anymore, send them to someone who can enjoy them! Or, if they squeeze your toes, time to get a new pair!
3.) You just don’t like it anymore. Enough said.
4.) It is out of style… and not coming back around. 😉
I’m not super trendy for this very reason!
5.) It’s just not you.
This is me all the way! A lot of my clothes are from high school and college. Seriously! I’m no longer wearing Abercrombie and Fitch or holey jeans. That just isn’t what I’m going for anymore. Time to boot those things!
If you have a hard time telling if an item works for you, enlist a good friend that you trust to help you out. Just don’t get offended if he or she knocks your favorite mom jeans. 😉
Now once you get all these items out, time to rotate clothes! Put your winter clothes away now that it is warming up, and get out the warm weather clothes.
Plus, look at all the space you have created for new items!!
Now, go read Laura’s post for more of her pointers on how to clean out your closet.
Make sure next Friday you are ready to show us your pictures of your new clean closet!
Now…. closet time!
Who’s up for the challenge?
What are you all up to this weekend? I’m off someplace special… 😉
