Spring has arrived it’s time for spring clean-outs! First, let’s talk about why spring clean outs are so great. All through the cooler months, it’s easy to accumulate items that are taking up space in your home. Many people choose spring as a season to clean out their closets, garages and storage spaces. However, our main focus in this article will be cleaning out clothing and investment pieces. Many of us love fashion. I love fashion, but I make a point to clean out my closet several times a year. Being a fashion blogger, I have wonderful pieces that I love to wear, but I also have to keep in mind that my closet can only hold a certain amount of items. I believe organization is the key to eliminating a lot of stress in your home environment. A clean, decluttered space is the key to having clear mind.
“Clutter can make us feel stressed, anxious and depressed. Research in the United States in 2009 found that levels of the stress hormone cortisol were higher in mothers whose home environment was cluttered. A chronically cluttered home environment can lead to a constant, low-grade fight-or-flight response, taxing resources designed for survival. This response can trigger physical and psychological changes that affect how we fight infections and digest food, as well as leaving us at greater risk of Type 2 diabetes and heart disease.” Newsweek 2019
Here’s a few tips to guide you through spring cleaning.
First, get rid of any clothing and luxury pieces you haven’t worn in a while. Yes, clean out your closet! Use tall laundry baskets as a means to sort through your clothing and shoes. If you haven’t worn an item in several months, remove that item from your closet.
Next, sort your clothes into 3 sections-Donate, Sell and Throw Away. There are many items that you may want to keep for sentimental reasons. But, if you’ve had an item that hasn’t fit in several years or you’re waiting on the opportunity to wear it, often times this means it’s time to part with the item.
Why is important to donate? Often times, there are many tragedies that happen throughout the year and I think it’s important to give back to those in need. There are several organizations that accept clothing donations if they are gently used and in great shape. There may also be clothing boxes in your town to donate bags of clothing. These boxes are usually checked frequently and distributed accordingly.
What if you would like to earn a little bit of extra money selling your clothes? There are several apps online where you can set your price for the item you’re selling and the company takes a small fee out after the purchase is made. You could also arrange closet sale on your favorite social media site or you can set a day for a yard sale. The benefits of selling directly on resale apps is you don’t have to worry about payment. The website collects the money up front and you get paid after the item ships. The benefits of having a closet sale on social media or a yard sale is you collect the money the same day.
