Happy March 1st! I cannot believe how fast February flew by, I am beyond excited for spring break coming up but have a lot of things on my to do list before then! Since it is the first month of spring, I thought I’d share a spring cleaning tip that you must try! I am not a fan of cleaning, but cleaning out my closet is something I am a fan of! When I start to run out of hangers in my closet, I know it’s time. Read below for my tips and tricks for cleaning out your closet, I guarantee you and your closet will feel better…
I recently bought a clothing rack from Ikea after seeing so many cute pictures of other bloggers featuring their seasonal favorites on them. I found this clothing rack at Ikea for only $12! I love how chic it looks in a bedroom and how practical it is! It clears up space in your closet and allows you to showcase your favorites for the season.
During the changing of seasons, it is always good to refresh and clean your home & clear your head! One way I clear my head is through cleaning, which might sound crazy but putting my life back in order helps me slow down. My favorite thing to clean is my closet. My closet is my happy place but it can be such a mess. I like to clean out my closet about 4 times a year, ditching the clothes I haven’t worn in over 2 years and selling them to a local resale shop. Whatever the resale shop doesn’t purchase, I donate the rest to CCA or Salvation Army.
My tips on cleaning out your closet & resetting your wardrobe:
- 2 year rule: If you haven’t worn it in over 2 years, it’s time to say goodbye!
- Put on your fav Spotify playlist and get to cleaning. I stuff my passes in trash bags to haul to Clothes Mentor or Plato’s Closet.
- If you are like me, you have about 7 striped shirts and 10 denim tops. Pick your favorite 2 or 3 and ditch the rest, less is more!
- Recycle your clothes in your community to a local resale shop and earn quick cash, it is the best feeling to have a clean closet & a full wallet!
Here’s to a clean closet, a happy heart & a chic home! Check back next month for another Home Chic Home post…
