Spring is here there is no denying it. Time to get into Spring cleaning. No, I'm not talking about washing windows or curtains, you can hire someone for that! I am talking about cleaning out your closet. Figuring out what you are going to keep or give away to make room for more things. I love cleaning out my closet, love it. As a matter of fact I plan on getting to it this weekend. Here are a few tips to having a successful Spring Closet cleaning.

1. Alcohol Is a Must

Yes, this is my number one tip. Going through your closet should be fun and a glass of wine, or a daiquiri will make this laborious task all the more fun.

2. Be Honest With Yourself

If you don't see yourself wearing the item at all, it's time to move. Also, if it can't get it over your knee, head etc. It does not fit, give it away now!

3. Make Sure It Gets Out of The House ASAP

Whether you are giving it to Goodwill, Salvation Army, or your local church. Make sure, you get the castoffs to them ASAP. If not, you end up with a huge garbage bag in the middle of your kitchen, which is not a good look!

4.Make A List Of Your Have Nots

The beauty of Spring Cleaning is that you are able to take a visible inventory of what is missing in your wardrobe. Now is the time to make an actual shopping list of what you are missing. If you are low on tees, now is the time. Missing a denim jacket, hit up the stores. Spring Cleaning makes for a better year round wardrobe.

5. Zippers, Tears and Buttons Oh My

If you have missing buttons, or slight tears in your clothing. Chances are your local cleaners can take care of it for you. If you need major work, say things taken in or hemmed, make a dash to your tailor. Stains and major tears need consultation by experts. If it's not salvageable, you may have to bid goodbye. If it is, let the professionals work on it.
