4 Ways to Clean Up Your Closet for Fall
- Stash your (strictly) summer clothes. Some items are transitional, but there’s a lot you won’t need until next spring. Store cutoffs, crop tops and bikinis in space-saving bags or bins below your bed.
- Sell or donate what you don’t need. If you can’t remember the last time you wore an item, you probably safe to toss. Gather lightly used pieces and make a dropoff at your local charity or consignment store. You can also try TheRealReal or Poshmark to make cash on clothes from the comfort of your couch.
- Invest in seasonal staples. Take a less more more approach to trends and invest in items — like boots, coats and bags — that are more likely to stick around.
- Get organized. Keep bulkier items like coats and heavy jackets towards the back of your closet, and bring basics like tees and sweaters to the front. Knowing where your clothes go will streamline your morning search for something to wear.
