Spring Cleaning – Assess your current closet

Use this time of year to clean out your closets and do some spring cleaning.  Pull out each piece of clothing in your wardrobe ask yourself the following:

  • Is it out of style?
  • Does it fit?
  • Does it match anything else in your wardrobe?
  • Has it been hanging in your closet unworn for more than 3 seasons?
  • Is it worn out, ripped or stained?
  • Is it more than three years old?

If you answered “YES” to any of the the above questions, put that item in your donation bag.  When the bag is full, give it to charity and take the tax write-off, or sell it at a consignment store and make some extra cash that you can use to fill your wardrobe gaps.

    Very good suggestion. In fact, I am probably guilty of possessing clothes
    that I don’t wear and haven’t worn in years. I’ll have to get busy and
    get busy cleaning out my closets.

    Lori always has great things to share. Yes, I definitly need to Spring Clean.
    By the way, are their any great consignment shops for clothes near Orange/Tustin?
