January is Clean Out Your Closets Month

by Angela On January 16, 2009

Clothes on hangersDid you know that January is Clean Out Your Closets Month?  If getting organized is on your to-do list for the New Year getting started with your closets can be a great place to start.  Here’s a few tips to help you transform you closet from blah to beautiful:

  1. Organizing an average size closet can take anywhere from 5-8 hours.  Decide in advance whether you will take on the entire closet in one day or if you will break up the project into sections, such as hanging clothes on one day and shoes and accessories on another day. 
  2. Be brutal.  Try on clothes to see if they fit and if they do not then it is time to let them go.  Remember my famous rule “if the clothes doesn’t love you back” then it’s time to pass it on to someone who it will love.  That means the size, color and style have to LOVE you and make you look fabulous! 
  3. When you are putting your clothes back in the closet it’s best to group the clothing into categories based on how you use them.  For example, you may have weekend shirts, casual shirts, dress blouses.  This makes it easier to find something when you are getting ready because you simply go to the category you need based on the type of events you have planned for the day. 
  4. If you are REALLY into being organized you can take it a step further and color code each category!  Woo hoo!  That’s my kind of closet!  But this can be a bit much for some people.  See my next blog post Organize Your Clothes by the Colors of a Rainbow

 Organizing a closet is a great weekend project to tackle and you will feel great Monday morning when you look at the clothes in your closet and you know everything you see is something you feel good in.   

Clothes that you love and that makes you feel fabulous, that’s the good life! 

Enjoy!
