It's amazing how much stuff you can pack into a closet. It really adds up as time goes by, and there comes a point in time when you need to clean it out and make way for new stuff.
Here are some eco-friendly closet organization tips that will make cleaning your closet a breeze.
- Recycle your old clothes, CDs, electronics, and paper goods. If you haven't worn it in a year, have already made a digital copy, or simply don't want to read those old love letters ever again, recycle them back into the product stream.
- Freecycle it. Freecycling is effectively giving your unwanted items to local groups and businesses who can use your stuff. Whether it's stationery, batteries, or old phones, your trash is their treasure.
- Get some help. Having trouble parting with your possessions? Enlist the help of a friend, and ask them to give you a second opinion regarding the items in your closet. This will make de-cluttering a lot easier.
