What is it about the new year that makes us all feel the need to purge and organize?
Is it because we received more gifts than we really need? Or because everything just feels messy and disorganized after all of the holiday decorations are put away?
Whatever the reason, the organizing bug always hits me hard this time of year and I start cleaning and organizing like nobody’s business. So, today, I’m offering some tips for getting organized that can be used in closets both large and small.
First and foremost, you must purge! As a general rule of thumb, if you haven’t worn it or used it in a year, get rid of it!
After I’m all done editing and I know what I’m going to keep, the first thing I do is sort all my clothes in to categories:
- Sleeveless shirts
- Short-sleeved shirts
- Long-sleeved shirts
