Hogwarts has ‘Wingardium Leviousa’ to rearrange your clothes perfectly. Here on earth, we have to do it without the magic spells & as you are among those who want to set themselves free from your wardrobe clutter nightmare.
#1. Throw Them Out of The Wardrobe
To get started, empty out your closet. This will help you to see how much room you have and find clothes you may have forgotten about. Fashion experts have found that most people only wear around 20% of their wardrobe, so clear out your closet of items you no longer wear or need.
#2. ‘Keep, Maybe, Donate’
Once your closet is empty, you will be ready to begin sorting through your items. Create Keep, Maybe, Donate piles. In the ‘Keep’ pile, place clothing that you have worn within the past month. In the ‘Maybe’ pile, add pieces that you have not worn in six months and could possibly get rid of. In the ‘Donate’ pile, place items you no longer need or want to be donated to charity.
#3. Use That Extra Closet/Bin
If you are like most people, you have coats or fancy dresses that you need but do not often wear. Use an extra closet or bin to store such items safely until needed. Make a note on the clothing of when you stored away. If you find that in a year you have not worn the items, it might be time to donate!
#4. ‘Hang’ On
One tip that can help you with the cleaning out process over time is our little hanging secret. Once you have worn an item, hang it back in your closet but place the hanger the opposite way. If you find that after 3 to 6 months the item is still hanging in the opposite way that it should be, then you are not wearing the item. Consider donating to make way for new clothing.
#5. Prioritize Quality
