Spring is finally here! While this season means warmer weather and sunny days, it also means spring cleaning. There’s truly no better time to consider a closet cleanout! These closet cleanout tips will help guide you through the process.

Out with the Old

We all have those items we can’t get rid of for sentimental reasons. However, there comes a point when you might be holding onto too many items, causing clutter in your closet! The first thing you should do when you start to clean your closet is evaluate each piece of clothing. How often do you wear it? When’s the last time you wore it? Create a pile of things you’ll keep and a pile of items to donate. Now, you’ll have a clean slate for when you begin to organize your closet.

Upgrade Your Hangers

There’s nothing quite as frustrating as when clothes won’t stay on their hangers. A simple solution? Investing in some new hangers! This ensures that pants and shirts won’t constantly be falling to the ground, adding unnecessary clutter to your closet. Target offers a variety of hanger options for different pieces of clothing, as does Amazon.

Stock for the Seasons

Are your summer and winter wardrobes both crammed into your closet at once? This can take up unnecessary space and make it hard to keep your closet clean and organized. Instead, consider putting your out-of-season clothes in storage bins under your bed or in a storage closet if you have one. This clears off your hangers, so you have plenty of room for the clothes you’ll focus on for that season.

Get Crafty with Containers

If you have shelves in your closet, make the most of them with storage containers like baskets! With so many containers available today, they can now be both functional and trendy. Baskets are a great place to store accessories like scarves and hats, or even items like sweatshirts and bathing suits. This adds to the organization of your closet while also giving it a chic look. Check out some of Amazon’s storage baskets to get started.

Make New Habits

Now that your closet is clean and organized, you want it to stay that way! It’s hard to keep it in tip-top shape, but implementing some new habits to stay organized can make cleaning less of a bear to tackle. For instance, try to get in the habit of always hanging up your clothes, rather than leaving them on the floor. Or, before you go to bed, make sure your closet is tidy so you won’t wake up to a mess the next day. Next, try to do a cleanout once or twice a year to stay on top of it.

From investing in storage containers to getting rid of items you never wear, your next closet cleanout will be a breeze with these tips. You just have to get started! Pick a day to clean and hold yourself to it. For more cleaning tips, check out our blog HERE.
