How to Properly Declutter Your Apartment Closet

When was the last time you organized and cleaned your main apartment closet?

When was the last time you organized and cleaned your main apartment closet? Setting aside a day to go through the shoes you do not wear anymore, the clothes that have become worn, or anything else that could have piled up in your closet is a nice, simple task that improves your daily routine. Plus, the start of a new season is an excellent time to assess your habits and identify areas you might want to improve or change. To avoid overwhelming cleaning your apartment, it is a good idea to approach this process step-by-step and start off small. Read on to learn more!

Get a Donation Box and Trash Bag Before Decluttering Your Apartment Closet

While you’re cleaning and organizing, you are sure to come across different articles of clothing that you do not want to keep. If they’re still in good condition, donate them to a thrift store or local shelter. If the items are tattered or worn, then consider throwing them away. You could also repurpose a few articles of clothing to use as rags for cleaning your apartment or patches for craft projects. Having a donation box and trash bag with you before you start this process will motivate you to use them, and you will not have to navigate around piles of clothes on the floor near your apartment closet.

Pull Everything Out of Your Apartment Closet to Start

If you want to declutter your closet, it is best to go through each item you have. Rifling through your closet without pulling the items to go over their worth could result in an incomplete job. Inspecting everything is necessary for getting a real account of what you want to keep because some things will not stand out enough for you to add to your donation box or trash can.

Be Intentional About Where You’re Placing Your “Keep” Items

Once you’ve filtered out everything you’re not keeping, figure out an organization system for the remaining items that work best for you. Perhaps you like to keep things accessible and prefer organizing your clothes by type, or maybe you want to create an organized aesthetic and keep things together by color. Whichever organization method is the most effective for you is the best one for you to implement. When you are done, you will notice a big difference in the time it will save you the next time you are getting ready.
