  1. Decide where your clothes are going before you start cleaning (i.e., consignment boutique, charity, etc).
  2. While going through each piece, ask yourself, “When is the last time I wore this?”
  3. If it’s within the last six months, then ask yourself three additional questions:
    1. Do I love it?”
    2. Is it flattering?”
    3. “Is it the image I want to project?”
  4. If yes to all three, it’s a keeper. If no to any one of the three then it goes.
  5. Organize your hanging clothes by season.
  6. Subcategorize the seasons into tops and bottoms when hanging your clothes.
