Hi there, ever have the feeling you have too much stuff and not enough room to neatly store it? After selling a dresser and needing to find new storage solutions it became quickly I had too many pieces I haven’t worn in at least a year. I’ve been on a purge lately and trying to donate as much as possible. Over the next few weeks I’ll share with you some of the ways I’m determining whether to keep, donate, or toss items.
First up: clothing! I kid you not there were still clothes from middle school lying around, terrible to admit but I was in desperate need of a purge.
For the closet one method I’m beginning to implement is flipping the hangers to the opposite way after I’ve washed it and rehung the item. I’m beginning to see how many pieces are in great condition but I haven’t touched recently. After making a few decisions near the beginning I’m realizing I should give it a few months (due to changing seasons) to see what’s left unturned.
In regards to dresser drawers stuffed with clothes I separated them into what fits and doesn’t fit. Automatically if I don’t feel comfortable in it, why keep it when it could fit someone else perfectly – straight to the donation pile. Luckily I also have sisters who are more than willing to take clothes if I’m giving them away.
Anything with holes, stains, or unintentional rips are in the garbage. Please be curious when giving away items, no one will want anything in terrible condition.
After going over these steps I’ve eliminated a good chunk of items and now all that’s left is neatly folding them back into drawers.
What are your processes for cleaning up?
See you tomorrow,
