Cleaning my closet fills me with fear. I never set aside a day to clean out my closet. Trying on all my clothes and making decisions on what goes and what stays is too nerve racking for me. I prefer to do a little at a time. I keep a bag in my closet for things that should go to the Goodwill. That way when I find a shirt I'm no longer wearing I can just toss it in the bag rather than waiting for some huge cleaning day. When the bag is full I just take to the Goodwill and get another bag.
Keeping it small lets me find holes in my wardrobe and fill them slowly rather than having to go out and buy a ton of clothes. Cause that's what happens. You clean out your closet and discover you have nothing to wear so you run to the store to buy more. But now I don't do that. I get rid of a couple of shirts and see how many more I need. Perhaps I need more long sleeved so I just buy those. So much easier for me.
What about you? What are your secrets for keeping your closet manageable?
