A free printable with the easiest method to help you with closet cleanout to make more space in your wardrobe and leaves you feeling inspired every day.
I know, I know.
I should be sharing our his & her master bedroom closets all finished and filled with our curated wardrobe today. (I’m sorry… I just snort laughed at “curated wardrobe” because seriously many of my clothes have traces of paint splatters. We’re not fancy enough for the word “curated”, okay?)
Robert’s closet is 100% filled and finished and mine is… not. Let’s just say that.
When I shared an update last week, his closet looked like this after our quick IKEA Billy hack:
And now it looks like this: (Sorry for the fuzzy cell phone shot.)
And mine still looks like this:
To be fair, we ran out of hangers. Totally blaming that. Yeah.
But it’s also taken me a lot of time to sort through every piece of clothing. I need way more direction than simply, “Does this spark joy?” when it comes to this closet clean-out thing.
In the past three years, I have been super fit, pregnant, and postpartum with still some baby weight to lose, so my relationship with my wardrobe has been rocky.
And I have a tendency to hang onto way too many clothes simply because they’re still in decent shape, or I keep way too many items “just in case” and that “just in case” moment never arrives.
I’ve finally decided I need to stop playing this back and forth song and dance with my closet, and actually have a closet full of clothes that a truly love and can wear often.
So I whipped up a closet clean-out cheat sheet that has helped to guide me in my thought process.
I think just maybe my Type A is showing. Haha! You do what you gotta do.
It totally works though! And I can honestly say my wardrobe is finally starting to “spark joy” for me… and that hasn’t happened in a very long time.
If you want the closet clean-out cheat sheet yourself, you can subscribe here (it’s free) and get access to it in my printable library. (If you’re already a subscriber, you can access the printable library with the password at the bottom of every email I send.)
I wish I could tell you the closet clean-out process is this neat and tidy…
But no. Reality, y’all.
It’ll get there… eventually.
Seriously though, I can’t wait to show you BOTH of the closets completely finished later this week. Pinky promise, it’ll be done.
Do you have any wardrobe sorting tips you use? Does the “spark joy” method work for you? If it did for me, I would have tossed all of the bills and dirty laundry a long time ago. 😉
