3 Easy Steps to Reduce Stress by Streamlining Your Wardrobe

The holidays are a stressful time; there are cards to send out, meals to prepare and gifts to be bought. That’s why MyClothingHelper wants to leave you with one less thing to worry about by helping you organize your closet and reduce your wardrobe. And, as a bonus, when you purge your closet you can donate those old clothes and accessories to those most in need.

Follow these simple steps and you’ll be on your way to a leaner, more efficient wardrobe.

  1. The rule that you should “ditch your clothes if you haven’t worn them in a year” doesn’t always apply says Melanie Fascitelli, President and Creative Director of Clos-ette, a company that specializes in creating luxury closets. “Trends come back around, so even if you haven’t worn it in a while, it might be worth keeping. The questions that really need to be asked about your clothes are “would I buy this today?” and “is this looking worn-down?” But, “if something doesn’t fit, it just doesn’t fit,” says Fascitelli. If it’s worn-out or fits poorly, you won’t be comfortable wearing it. The reality is that you probably won’t ever wear it again, so get it out of your closet!
  2. Once you’ve determined what clothes to let go of, you can donate your items to a number of reputable charitable organizations, including DonateMyDress.org, Salvation Army, Goodwill, or Zealous Good.
  3. Maintain a tidy and purposeful wardrobe by grouping clothing items together. Designate a space for all of your dresses and hang them together, do the same with button-down shirts, and so on. Be vigilante in keeping your closet organized. This will save you time by making it easier to find clothes on the rack and it will give you a more clear and organized picture of what clothes you have available to wear.

Closet organization products such as MyClothingHelper, tie racks, and over-the-door shoe organizers are also great tools for keeping a neat and organized closet.

Make this holiday season your most stress-free and giving season yet. Be honest about what clothing you’ll never wear again. If you need help, organization products like MyClothingHelper can help you be more decisive by showing you how often you are really wearing your clothes. And remember to give your excess clothes a second life by donating to a charitable organization.

Organized closet = happy girl
