You have carefully cultivated your clothing game, but now, it feels a lil claustrophobic in your closet. We have a couple of tips to help de-clutter your wardrobe. 

Worn it in a Year?

As you began to tidy up your closet, ask yourself, "Have I worn this in the last year?" If the answer is yes, then put it back. If the answer is no, then it may be time to let it go. 


Backwards Hangers

If you are like me and can't remember if you've worn that shirt in the last year, then a simple trick is to turn all your hangers in your closet backwards. This way the open end of the hanger will face you. As you wear the item, put it back in the closet the regular way (open end facing the back of the closet). In six months, you can go back and see what you have been wearing and what you have not.


One In, One Out

The theory behind this tip is that every time you buy a new item and bring it into your wardrobe, then you must take something old/ outdated/ no longer wear out. 


Closet Clean Out Party

Of course, you can choose to donate your clothing, or even sell them online or at a yard sale. But another alternative is to hold a little get-together with your friends, and everyone brings their clothes they no longer want. Then you can trade amongst yourselves, and whatever is left can then be donated to less fortunate.
