Clean Out Your Closet

Organize your clothes and closet at least twice a year. Spring and Fall are good times of the year. An audit is taking a clothing inventory and gives you the opportunity to get rid of things that you do not wear, don’t fit you or things that are out of style. A few good basics and special pieces should be the keepers.


  • Keep the things that fit and flatter you and that work with other pieces in your wardrobe.
  • Throw away clothing items that are stained, worn, frayed, or ripped beyond repair.
  • Set aside clothing that needs repair (pieces that need new buttons, hems, or other small repairs).
  • Donate old clothes that don’t fit, flatter, or that you don’t wear any longer if they are in good repair. Don’t send anything to a donation center that should be tossed out.
  • Consign any quality clothes items that are in good condition.
  • Put everything back in your closet. Keep like pieces together: all shirts, skirts, pants, etc. together.
  • Make A List of the things you need.
  • Go Shopping with your list.
  • Stay within your budget.

Ask Yourself These Questions:

  1. Does this fit into my basic wardrobe?
  2. Does it fit me properly?
  3. Can I maintain the fabric easily?
  4. Is it in my budget?
