How To Plan And Complete A Total Closet Revival
The year is more than half gone and at the beginning of the year, I vowed to do a complete home revival. I promised myself that I would touch every closet and drawer and storage space in our home and so far, I’ve completed three closet revivals and revived two storage areas as well. Today I will share my process and tips for How To Plan and Complete A Total Closet Revival.
First Things First
Make sure you have everything you need on hand for the project.
- matching hangars
- cleaning supplies
- storage baskets & containers
- three bins (toss, donate, sell)
You know where I’m going with this…right? If not let’s keep moving. The first thing you must do is to remove everything from the closet and I mean everything.
While everything is out of the closet this is the perfect time to wipe down shelves, and clean floors. If you are doing a small refresh, you could also change out the lighting and paint the walls. These steps are totally optional but cleaning the floors and shelves are a must.
Now that the closet is prepared, you should begin the second step.
Moving Right Along
Now, this is the difficult part, which is purging the items that are no longer serving you. I realize it will be difficult for you because it is difficult for me but it is completely necessary.
My rule of thumb is that if I have not worn an item in a year’s time, it needs to be donated or sold if in good condition, or tossed if in questionable condition. This could take most of the time of this project because if you are like me, you will also want to try on some of the clothes to make sure you still like the fit,
In the End Zone
Now for the fun part. Using your matching hangars, it’s time to put the items you have decided to keep back into the clean closet. I enjoy color coding my clothing as well as separating by season. For example, short-sleeved and then color-coded and long sleeve and color-coded. Get it? Decide which items will be hung and which will be folded and stored in the storage baskets and bins. By the way, the prettier the storage basket and bins the more you will enjoy your closet. I’m just saying. 🙂
I suggest organizing the folded clothing first and then moving on to the items you will hang. If you want to see me organize a closet from start to finish, check out the video below.
Let me know if you will tackle a closet refresh before the end of 2022.
