How to Clean Your Closet in 15 Minutes

Before You Start

  • Set a timer for 15 minutes

  • Put on your favorite music

In the First 5 Minutes - Clean Up

  • Remove all dirty clothes and put them in a hamper to be washed

  • Hang or fold all clean clothes that may be scattered on the floor of your closet and around your room

In the Next 5 Minutes - Purge

Quickly go through all of the items in your closet.

Remove any of the following items.

  • Anything torn, stained, ripped, or broken.

  • Items that need to be hemmed or tailored.

  • All items that don’t fit you or that you don’t feel good in.

  • Anything you haven’t worn in over a year.

Put these items in 3 piles: tailor/repair, donate, or trash.

In the Last 5 Minutes - Organize

Now with the remaining clothes in your closet, do a quick organization of them.

  • Organized everything by classification (not by outfit).

  • Once items are grouped by classification then organize them from light to dark.

This organization method will allow you to quickly and easily mix and match garments from different classifications to create outfits you may not have worn before.
