Fall is here and even though purchasing new items it's a must we should definitely start to clean up our closet. Here are few steps which will help you.
1) Donate or Toss your Summer Pieces
Start narrowing down your summer pieces. What I do I put the clothes into two groups, one is donate, one is toss. If you have transitional pieces which you can use for fall do keep them. If the clothes which you think you are going to wear again for next summer you can keep those two. Remaining clothes which are poor conditions toss it and the one which are still good but you know you will not wear them donate them. This always makes me feel so good that someone else will get a good use of my clothes.
2) Store Non-Transitional Summer Items
Pieces which you are going to keep you need to divide them into two piles. One which you can wear it transitioned in fall and one which you can't like sandals, straw hats, shoulder-less tops.
3) Bring Out Fall Pieces
Move pieces like jackets, coats, pieces which you will layer as you will need them. It is better to organize them and have them ready.
4) Organize Your Items By Priority
Now you know what items you will need for fall and is time to organize them by Priorities. The way how I organize it is from lightest to heaviest. Lightest one are in the front like T shirts, simple pieces, pieces which I can layer or transition summer pieces and then I will have in the back the jumpers, and warmer pieces. Of course organizing then the jackets and shoes. Clean up the booties and shoes for fall.
5) Clean Your Closet And Your Drawers
This is very important, get your duster, and spray, Clean your mirrors, your draws everything. Once everything is clean, then just fold all your clothes, this is important if you have drawers and not all your clothes hang as once they are nicely folded then you prevent them to get wrinkly. Sometimes if needed you can have additional containers for remaining clothes. I don't know about you but once the closet or your room is nicely clean and all is organized I feel so much better.
Once everything is organized and put in place I like to add into my drawers beauty soaps. They just leave nice smells in the drawers. Lavender soaps is my favorite or Coconut one.
Hope this post was helpful and do let me know what you do when the season is changing, how you like to organize your clothes. I am always keen to learn something new.

I believe that what you wear tells a lot about your personality. Fashion are clothes, but style is what you do with it.
