New Year, New You!

Time to clean out the ol' closet!

Here are some suggestions for starting the new year out right:

1) Color coordinate your closet. This will help elimate time spent looking for clothing items.

2) Order clothes from long sleeve to short or winter to summer. Again, this eliminates wasted time spent finding a top or pants. Catagorize clothes, put all sweaters together, jeans together, jackets etc.

3) Do invest in shoe, belt, scarf, and jewelry organizers.

4) Try on everything in your closet! If you haven't worn it in the last year chances are, you probably won't!
If something doesn't fit quite right but you really like it, assess whether you can alter it so you'll actually wear it! Create a "keep", "maybe", and "donate" pile. Try and create outfits as you go, if you haven't worn something in a while it may be because you have nothing to go with it. Start writing down a list of items you need to purchase to create outfits or replace.
