Fall Closet Offensive

The kids are going back to school and the summer routine changes to fall schedules and commitments, it’s that time of year. Before you have to really makes changes because of cold weather conditions take time to get rid of stuff you don’t use or no longer need. Free up space inside clothes closets and dresser drawers by taking little used shorts and tee shirts and donate them to make room for sweaters and socks. If you didn’t wear them this summer, why would you want to save them?

Take the same approach to the family clothes closet. If you can’t remember the last time you wore a jacket or coat, give it to someone who can use it. The same goes for boots, hats and gloves. Just because it’s in the closet doesn’t mean you have to keep it.

The payoff is you’ll feel good every time you open the closet door and see items hanging nicely without being scrunched together. More empty is better than over full.

Attacking the contents of your clothes closets is just the baby step toward all the things that have accumulated in your house and garage. It may require a yard sale or many trips to donation centers.  Purging your stuff is possible, but it’s not easy. And it takes a plan and time to execute that plan, but in the end, it’s worth it.
