How to Edit Your Closet Like a Pro, and Quickly

How to Edit Your Closet Like a Pro for only 15 minutes for 5 days

As we step into 2024, it's the perfect time to revitalize your wardrobe and embrace a more efficient and organized approach to closet editing. In this blog post, we'll explore the most effective and straightforward way to edit your closet for a fresh and stylish start in only 5 days.


Day 1: Remove Damaged Items

Grab a trash bag, set your timer for 15 minutes, crank some T-Swift and head into your closet. Start at one end and start removing anything damaged. You don't need to think about the last time you wore this item, or what it means to you, you are simply removing things that have holes, stains, or are damaged. Once the timer goes off you are done.

Day 2: Remove Items That You Don't Wear

Grab another trash bag and set your timer once again for 15 minutes. Start at one end of your closet and inspect every item. If you can't think of the last time you wore the item, or the next time you're planning to wear it, remove it. If you think, gosh I should like the shirt but i just don't- remove it. Don't spend too much time agonizing try to make quick decisive decisions. The good news is, this isn't a forever decision. When you are done, put this bag, in your garage, attic, or spare closet. If at any point you are in your closet and wanting the item back, you can go retrieve it from the garage bag. Create an event in your calendar for 6 months from now labeled "Donate Clothes." Whatever items are still in the bag after 6 months, simply donate.

Day 3: Sort by Season

Good news, no hard decisions today. All you need to do is play some music on your phone, and set your timer once again. Start grouping your clothes according to season and sleeve legth. For example at the beginning of your closet put all your sleevelss tops, next short sleeve, then long sleeve, then sweaters. In another aread of the closet put all your dresses and hang your pants. It doesn't have to be pretty just get everything alongside its appropriate group. 


Day 4: Color Code

Starting on one section of your closet, lets says the sleeveless tops section, start putting these items in color order. I have mines going from whites to blacks. But if you find yourself wearing more black or a specific color, put that color first. This doesn't have to be an exact science but it will dramatically help you next time you're in a hurry to get dressed. Again this should take about 15 minutes. If it takes longer, repeat this step again the next day.

Day 5: Evaluate and Curate

Go through each section of your closet and just take note with a simple pen and paper or on the notes section of your phone. Do you have 100 tops but your jeans section has only one pair? Did you toss a lot of old sweaters so that section could use a for more pieces? Refer to this list next time you're out shopping. Instead of buying the trendy on sale item, look at this list and shop for pieces you're actually lacking. This will ensure you've got a balanced closet, making it so much easier to put together outfits.
