1)Separate Work and Play

Separate your work and casual items. This is a good weekend project especially on a rainy day. You’d be surprised what treasures you may discover.

2) Organize by Style

Organize items by style this will help to move seasonal items to the back of the closet and reduce your choices. This will save a lot of time during the week when you are getting ready for work.

3) Purge

Purge items that are worn, dated or don’t fit properly. This varies from person to person. My typical rule is if you haven’t worn it in the last year, get rid of it. If you are reluctant, dig a little deeper into why you are holding onto the item.

Purging Notes: If you find yourself making excuses for holding onto items consider the following suggestions.

  1. It still has a lot of wear to it. Great! Then pass it onto someone that can get some use out of it or donate it to a women’s shelter. The recipient will be so grateful to the “like new” item they receive.

  2. It has sentimental value. There is nothing wrong with keeping sentimental items. If you are not wearing these items package them up to preserve them. This will help reduce closet clutter. Note: this should be about the size of a tote or a handful of hangers that can be stored in another closet. Be realistic with yourself about what is truly sentimental.

  3. I’ll wear it again someday. If this is your thought be very deliberate with when “someday” is. Write it on your calendar. If you really plan to wear it again you’ll make it happen otherwise be thankful for the item and how it served you and pass it on. Many people get caught up on this idea when it comes to losing weight. My recommendation is to purge these items and treat yourself to something new when you reach your ideal weight goal. It will make your hard work more rewarding.

4) Stay Consistent

Put away your laundry in its designated spaces when it’s clean. If you took the time to implement steps 1 to 3 then this step should be a breeze and laundry day will be a little less painful.
