Declutter Your Closet Thursday – Getting Organized

Getting Organized:
In your home and homeschool

Today, I want you to spend 15 minutes decluttering clothes from your closet. For most women, the closet is a hot spot in and of itself. You have more than one season of clothes. You have multiple sizes of clothes —

  • Your goal clothes for you are skinny again
  • Your clothes that are too big
  • Your clothes that fit but you don’t really like them

Then you have a few outfits that you really like that make you feel good when you wear them. So why are you hanging on to the rest of the clothes that don’t fit or don’t make you feel pretty?

I watched a video today that really spoke to me about my closet. I am going to purpose to thin down the amount of clothes in my closet AND in my storage area for off-season clothes. I want you to take a few minutes to watch it, too.

Your assignment is to get rid of at least three things in your closet that do not fit. If you can get rid of more than that, then do it. Just set your timer and have a box or bag handy to toss things into. I just donated a big black trash bag full of clothes to the Goodwill. I even donated old pocketbooks and a pair of boots.

Set your timer for 15 minutes for the Home Assignment and 15 minutes for the School Assignment
