There’s nothing worse than walking into your bedroom, only to feel immediate dread and anxiety from a closet that’s legit bursting at the seams. A jam-packed space not only looks well, ugly, but completely changes the energy in your space. However, there are simple ways to defeat clutter and make your closet feel new again.
Keep scrolling to note the five items you should get rid of right now to make room in your wardrobe. Plus, go a bit further and shop those never-going-out-of-style staples that always warrant a coveted spot on your rack.
If you have a standard (non–walk-in) closet, those shoeboxes (even though they can keep your special shoes organized) are just taking up space. You could fit three pairs of shoes in place of one shoebox on your shelf.
Sure, they were free, but c'mon, you're not really going to wear all of those promotional tees and sweatshirts anymore. Save one, if you must, for the gym, and toss the rest.
There's absolutely no need to keep that box of Halloween costumes anymore. Chances are you'll never wear one of those old looks again. Why recycle a costume that's already splattered across your social channels?
We all get stacks of those free canvas totes from events and such, but there's no need to keep storing them in your closet. They're perfect for groceries—so place them in the trunk of your car or under your kitchen sink instead. Save that closet space for your handbags!
This should go without saying, but the easiest way to make room in your closet? Get rid of that baggage. No, not actual baggage (you need that for traveling!), but any odds and ends still hiding out from past relationships.
