This article is the third in a three part series on downsizing and decluttering, organizational strategies, and junk hauling. If you haven’t already read parts 1 and 2, I recommend you do before continuing.
Oprah’s closet method
One of the most difficult areas for people to downsize is often their closet – and I’m not just talking about the ladies! If you’re having a hard time deciding what’s important to you in your wardrobe, consider giving this method a try. Take everything out of your closet, and put it all back with the hangers backwards. Then, when you wear something, put it back with the hanger the normal way. After a few months you’ll start to get a good idea of what you’re using and what’s just taking up space. This technique can also be easily adapted for things that don’t go on hangers – put shoes away upside down, or switch up your folding technique for items in the dresser.
Not every decluttering and organizing project needs to be an ordeal. For this method, declutter 5 minutes at a time. Pick something quick from your “divide and conquer” task list, or for more ideas check out this article by Leo Babauta at Zen Habits for 18 different 5 minute decluttering tasks.
