New Year’s 2018 is almost here. For many of us, that many new resolutions and new beginnings. It’s another chance to hit refresh and restart on many aspects of your life. And, when it comes to your closet, that’s exactly what you need to do.
5 Tips to Organizing Your Closet for the Upcoming Year
As you start adding new gear for your winter wardrobe to the mix, you need to get rid of unneeded items in your closet. Out with the old and in with the new? Well, it may not be that simple. But, here are five tips to get your closet ready for the new year before it arrives:
1. Pick & Choose
Go through every section of your closet, from shoes to jewelry, from handbags to clothes. Create these four piles:
- Keep – Things you wear often or simply love
- To Be Tweaked – Items that need dry cleaning, alterations or other tweaks to make it to the Keep pile
- Maybe – These things can go in the attic or garage until you know for sure… or place them in the back of the closet
- Toss – If you no longer wear it, go ahead and donate it, give it away or throw a yard sale and make some extra bucks for the holidays
2. Prepare Your Closet for the New Season
Get rid of items that you can’t wear this season, such as summer gear. Before you store it away, be sure to check all your pockets. Place the items in garment bags. Organize them by type and color, and categorize your shoes.
3. Find Closet Inspiration
Find images and videos that inspire you. Then, merge some of the closet customizing techniques into your personal world. You’ll find some amazing pictures on Pinterest, Instagram and Facebook.
4. Create Your Wish List
Now that your closet is cleared of clutter and well-organized, you can easily see what you have and what you need. Make yourself a list of what’s missing from your wardrobe. Lists help you shop without going way over budget.
