It’s January 8th and if you haven’t done so already, it’s high time you go on a maaadddd cleaning frenzy in your closet! There’s nothing better than setting the year off on the right heel with a freshly cleaned closet. You know what they say “Clean closet = clear mind”… I’m not sure who said that, I kinda just made it up…but it makes sense right?

  • I reorganized my closet on Jan 1st last year and now know exactly what I have and haven’t worn in a whole year! Great advice~

  • I like the idea of making your closet presentable and making it look nice. That way it will be more fun to get dressed in the mornings!

  • It does make sense and it is true..I am constantly cleaning out my I just need to organize it..ahhhh!

  • I NEED to do this! I have two closets and they are both a mess…

  • I love all your suggestions! I am always so hesitant in parting with pieces in my closet.


  • Ugh, this is on my list of to-do’s. I really need to make some time to get it done. Thanks so much for the helpful tips!

  • This is right on time! I just moved into a new place this past weekend and seriously plan to clean out my closet!

  • Perfect sense! 😉

  • I clear my closet every 3-4 months…I try to donate as much as possible. A friend of mine, said I need to stop giving all my things away because I’m constantly spending money replacing things. I say i will keep giving but cut back to 2x a year. Great advice!

    Bah, I need to do this, stat!

  • i totally live by all these rules! especially the first one. my other ‘go to rule’ is i turn my hanger’s around – and if they haven’t been put back the opposite way that means i haven’t worn it and won’t ever wear it! totally works!


  • I’m definitely going to clean out my closet soon. I’ll keep these tips in mind.

  • I kinda do this, and I’m thinking about selling clothes that I don’t wear anymore.

  • LOVE a nice, clean closet to start the year!!

  • I tend to go through my closet often, that way I am always rotating things and it keeps things feeling fresh. I just donated 2 bags of unwanted stuff and it feels so good!

  • I love your recommendation to get nice coordinating hangers. My hangers are all mismatched! It’s hard for me to get past the “but I might need this down the road” mentality but I was very motivated by Peter Walsh’s book “It’s All Too Much: An Easy Plan for Living a Richer Life with Less Stuff” ( That book got me so pumped up for getting rid of stuff.

    Can’t wait to see more of your guides. They’re always so freaking cute!

  • I cleaned out my bathroom cabinet last weekend (read: insane amounts of half-used beauty products taking up space) and my closet is on the cleaning agenda for this weekend. Seeing as I only have ONE closet in my tiny San Francisco apartment, staying on top of what I have in there is of the utmost importance (to my sanity). Thanks for the great tips!

    I have been wanting to clean out my closet for over six months now. I’m so tired of looking at the same stuff because the other stuff is hidden behind the mass pile of clothes laying on top of each other. My husband swears we have little critters or small leprechauns living underneath it all 😉 Thanks for the advice now maybe I will actually do it!

  • Jo Ann chase

    How do you store purses? Do you stuff them? Also what kind of baskets. And ideas for tons of costume jewelry?

  • The One Year Rule is something I follow. I do not want to clutter my closet with clothing that I no longer use or have no intention of using.
