Do you have skeletons in your closet? Whether you’re hiding a deep, dark secret or simply stuffing your mess on your closet shelves when company comes over, it’s time to clean up, dust off the cobwebs and organize your closet. This is an easy way to take control of a small part of your house and de-stress your life a little.

First, start with a closet audit to determine what clothes you’d like to keep, and what you need to toss (skeletons should be tossed). Go through your closet one item at a time and ask yourself the following questions (your kids can be a big help here): 

  • Does it fit?

  • When will I wear this?

  • When was the last time I wore this?

  • Does it have stains or holes?

  • Can it be fixed?

Once you’ve got your piles separated, it’s time to start organizing and cleaning. Read these step-by-step instructions for some clever, quick tips on cleaning out your closet. We’re not sure if these tips will work for those deep, dark secrets, but you can certainly give it a try!
