Closet Cleansing: 4 Meaningful Ways to Declutter Your Closet

2017 has come and just like everything else, changes are necessary to make way for better things, and yes, that also applies to your closet.

Our closet bears witness to the year that has been. Admit or not, it is filled with articles of clothing and thingamajigs that were accumulated either through rush mall sale, binge shopping, or calculated purchase trips.

That being said, the closet is like an extension of our inner being, which is in need of detoxification every now and then. Similar to bodily purging, closet cleaning also presents a bevy of benefits including organized clothes and more space for new ensembles.

Now, the question is – what can I do to make my decluttering more meaningful?

1. Donate to charity.

Instead of holding on to the clothes that you are not able to wear anymore, why not look for an organization that accepts clothing for those in need? We are sure that your pre-loved for new tops and bottoms.

2. Give away to friends.

Remember the time when your friend jokingly asked for one of your oversized tops? Well, we won’t blame you if you were not able to grant that request immediately. But try to give it a second thought this time. You might not really need it anymore, plus you can make your friend happy by sharing your clothes.
