Welcome to Mission 10 of our 52 Get Organized Missions.
Do you long for a closet of comfortable, co-ordinated clothes that look great and make you feel fabulous? Well, you’re about to take the first step.
Before you can create your dream wardrobe you need to clear out the clothes and accessories that are more of a nightmare. So in this Get Organized Mission we’re going to systematically remove all the closet clutter that’s wasting hanger space and dragging your image down.

Our group responses are as follows: You will need five bags or boxes for:discard/trash; donate/charity; repair; cleaning; shoes
Remove everything from your closet. Sort the clothes and items in your closet.
Donate: Needs constant re-adjustment; doesn’t suit your lifestyle; Makes you look less than your best; you just don’t love
Discard:Is a shape that doesn’t suit you = if it loses its elastic waist or shape; Is in poor condition or looks worse for wear; Feels itchy or scratchy against your skin; Feels uncomfortable; Is ill-fitting (too loose, tight, short, etc) = if it can’t be altered.
Donate or Discard: Has bad memories or associations; is a color that doesn’t suit you = try to mix and match the outfit after one year then donate or discard
Is out of style= if the style looks good on you wear it
Hasn’t been worn in the past 12 months = evaluate the outfit and it may be for formal occasions = keep
Repair: Needs alteration; mended: new buttons, zippers, etc.
Needs re-heeling, if the shoes can be fixed reasonably then have them repaired otherwise purchase a new pair of shoes
Once you have completed the above Take the discard bag out to the trash right away
Put the charity and cleaning or repair bags in a convenient location in your home until you take to charity or dry cleaning or seamstress
Place the laundry in a convenient location to take to the laundry room
Clothes were recently handled through the 14 day closet decluttering, but I need to address pictures and Christmas items that are left. Perfect time to deal with Christmas items
