1. Take advantage of time
Time is the first thing you need. Reserve a couple of hours of a day that you have free and get to work with the lasts? task of organizing your wardrobe. If you work at home, choose two hours at the beginning or end of the day to also clear yourself.
2. Mindful of the tools
Make sure you have several boxes or storage bags on hand, as well as a garbage bag to throw away the things you are going to get rid of. Piling up is not the solution and less if your intention is for example to give away the clothes you no longer wear.

Do it by types in different boxes: the garments that pass the filter because you keep wearing them, the ones that definitely leave your closet, the “I don’t know” for their sentimental value …
7. Do you need a touch up?
What about the ones that do stay? Check if everything is your size and it works for you (the “I’ll wear it as soon as I lose two sizes” is not valid).
8. Reorganize what’s left
Now that you have more free space in the dressing room , arrange the clothes according to seasons, colors and occasions.
9. Sell or give away what you don’t want
What do you do with all the clothes that have gone to the discard pile? Take advantage of the explosion of buy / sell pages in recent years. It is also a way to recover part of your investment.
10. Invest in basics (or luxury items)
