Reduce Clutter and Unclog Your Closet

Saturday, July 27, 2013
We are going to provide 3 tips on how to reduce clutter and unclog your closet. If you are like most of us, you probably haven’t even looked at all the stuff clogging and cluttering up your closet lately. Now is a great time to prioritize and de-clutter.

Do you have more than four pair of jeans in your closet right now?

How about black high shoes and black dresses? How many of those do you have?

And what about flip-flops? How many pair of those are flapping around in the corner somewhere?

Probably too many – and they are clogging your closet.


Who wants a clogged anything –let alone a clogged closet.

Implement these Drano like tips and your life will be flowing more smoothly before you can say “this doesn’t fit me anymore”:

1) Be Realistic – Think in Terms of Cost Per Wearing

A special occasion dress you wear once that costs $250 = a $250 cost per wearing.

A $100 pair of jeans that you wear twice a week for a year = a $1.00 cost per wearing.

Don’t let money just hang in your closet like a bad wire hanger. Make sure the money you spend on garments goes in and out of the closet frequently.

2) Get Baskin Robbins Out Of Your Closet

Sometimes it’s chocolate – sometimes it’s mint chip – but it’s still ice cream.

How that translates to your closet is that eight to ten pair of black high heels still boils down to black high heels.

It’s understood that you have different moods and different occasions and different pant lengths – but ten flavors of the same thing is a closet clogger.

3) Function and Beauty Go In The Closet – Just Beauty Goes On Your Walls As Art

Buying something because you appreciate its’ beauty is a wonderful thing. But if you never wear it – and it’s in your closet – it’s a waste of money.

If you’re a city dweller – you know not to purchase a painting or sculpture without a place to display it. Apply the same principle to your closet.

Don’t put things in your closet that aren’t going to work for you. See an example below of a recent closet de-clog that we helped perform for a client.
