It's time to face the facts: you have too many clothes and nothing to wear. How did this happen? You probably have a closet full of clothes that don't suit you anymore, clothes you've never worn, or clothes that don't fit. It's time for a closet clean-out! Getting rid of the unnecessary clothing will make your life a lot easier. You'll be able to find what you need when you need it, and you'll stop wasting money on clothes you'll never wear.
Cleaning out your closet can be a daunting task, but it's so worth it in the end. The key is to be strategic about it. Start by emptying everything out of your closet onto the floor. Yes, everything. Now take a good look at each item and ask yourself these questions: 1. Would I buy this today? 2. Is it in excellent condition 3. Do I actually wear this? If the answer to any of these questions is no, then get rid of it. It's that simple!
The best way to organize your closet is to put like things together. I like to organize by item, then color. This way, it's easy to find what you're looking for and you're not overwhelmed. I start with item categories first. Jackets, sweaters, pants, skirts, dresses, and tops. Then I may be a little over-the-top, but I organize tops by sleeve length, and then everything by color. My closet looks like popping rainbows (although I have a lot of neutrals.) This helps me get dressed many days because not only do I get into color moods, but if I choose to wear my red skirt, I can easily look for a colored top to coordinate. You may choose another way that may work better for you and that's great! Do what works. When you're done, take a quick picture of your newly organized closet and post it on Instagram using the hashtag #mimosastyleco!
Now it's time to tackle the clothes you don't want. This can be a hard step, but it's so important. We recommend getting rid of anything that you don't love. This might mean throwing out clothes that are stained, too small or too big, or simply outdated. You can also donate or give clothes to a friend who will love them. Another option, is to bring items in good condition to a consignment shop or have a garage sale. Just be sure to get rid of them in a way that's respectful and doesn't damage the environment. We recommend using a recycling service like Give Back Box to make donating easy and convenient.
A key part of keeping your closet clean is storing items where they are easily found and easy to put away. This means hanging clothes where they can be seen and easily accessed, and folding or stacking items in an organized way. You might want to try using velvet hangers so clothes stay put on them and don't slide off or storage bins and baskets to help keep everything sorted. It's also important to get rid of items that you don't love or that don't fit anymore on a regular basis. If they're taking up valuable space in your closet that you could be adding pretty new pieces, it's time to say goodbye!
A closet clean-out is the perfect way to help make you feel good and beautiful. You really only want to wear items you love and feel your best self in. It's always important to be conscious of what you're bringing into your closet, and to get rid of the things that don't serve you anymore. Follow these simple tips for how to clean out your closet, and you'll be seeing a big change in your wardrobe - and your life.
