Having a tidy closet can be a complicated task that can result in a headache because you tend to keep everything, really everything! And, sometimes out of nostalgia or thinking you’ll need some clothes for the future because “you’re going to lose weight and it’s going to fit soon”, you let the mess in your closet grow and grow.
Where you should start when you are determined to end the chaos is the doubt that many times has you stuck, but this time we will give you the best tips to start cleaning, but we warn you that you will have to get rid of some clothes because unless you are Kylie Jenner, you are being robbed of a lot of space.
1. Stop lying to yourself, if those pants don’t fit, say goodbye!
How many times have you said that you will start the diet on Monday and then the next and the next? It is common to think that because you have a pair of pants in your closet that are two sizes too small for you, you will be forced to lose weight. What a big lie!
2. Even if the clothes fit but don’t suit you, get rid of them
Even if you’ve grown fond of a garment and you keep it for mere nostalgia, it’s best to throw it away or sell it because, realistically, you’ll never find an occasion to wear it.
3. It’s time to give your sister back her blue sweater
Even if you think your sister has a great fashion sense and you want to keep every dress she buys, doesn’t! You are allowed to borrow from her but you have to return what is not yours. You’ll save yourself the trouble with your sister and won’t clutter up your space.
4. We all have a broken jean that doesn’t fit anymore
We all have a pair of pants that fascinates us, but when we put them on so much, it all ends up being broken. The fact that you can see too much skin in places where it shouldn’t be seen is a sign that those jeans are already for the garbage. It’s sad but necessary.
5. If you haven’t worn it in the last few months you may not like it as much
Those clothes that you don’t even remember and are at the bottom of the drawers are the ones that get in your way the most! Because, the truth is, if you don’t remember them, it’s because you don’t like them or feel nostalgic about them.
6. And if you really have no idea how to organize yourself
The important thing about closet cleaners is to get started. You may find it hard to throw away, give away, and even sell, but it’s always better to get rid of what you don’t need.
