Paula's Closet Cleaning Tips


An Organized Closet Means Getting Dressed Quicker


  • Time Slot - Block out a few hours of time for closet cleaning.  Solicit help from fashion savvy friend. 

  • Bag It - Have trash bags handy to donate items to your favorite charity.

  • Seasonality - Separate clothing by season.  Organize current season in main closet and opposite season in spare closet.

  • Mix & Match - Group together all shirts and blouses, sweaters, jackets, dresses, suits, skirts, and pants to easily locate items for coordination.

  • Colors - Arrange all colors in the category together for ease of dressing (ie: Itís easier to pick out a blue shirt when all shades of blue tops are hanging together).

  • A Keeper - Save it if: color is flattering to your body and complexion, style is appropriate to body type and age, item is classic or current fashion, it makes you feel good.

  • Purge It - Discard it if: color washes you out, styles are dated, doesnít fit properly, needs major repair, is worn-out, or shabby. The rule: if you havenít worn it in a year, get rid of it.   

  • Shopping List - Keep pad of paper and pencil handy to jot down items you need to replace or fill in the gaps to enhance wardrobe.

  • Hanger Appeal - Utilize proper hangers.  Void the closet of wire hangers.  Invest in strong plastic, wooden or padded hangers.

  • Timely Manner - Clean out closet twice a year at change of seasons, to maintain a fresh and current wardrobe.

  • Clean Scene - Store all clothing clean.  Dirt, perspiration, and food stains can attract insects and ruin clothing.  

  • Mirror - Hang a full-length mirror on closet door.  Check your reflection often to catch any missing buttons, loose threads, or animal hair.
