Spring Cleaning Checklist: Get Organized with Tulsa's Closet Experts

Inspired by the 30 Day Minimalism Game and Tulsa's wild spring weather, I've launched into spring cleaning mode lately. Many of the closet organization ideas I've shared here on the blog have come up during this process, so I'm sharing them again in a spring cleaning roundup! Whether you're going for a month of minimalism or just need to declutter your closet, my spring cleaning tips will demystify the process for you.

Each tip has a corresponding blog post that goes in-depth on the topic—don't miss it!

 Easy closet organizer: Keep a storage basket in your closet to throw clothes you don't quite love. I call this the breakup basket—try it, and you might find that almost nothing makes it back out!

Tip 1: Store winter clothes outside your shopping zone.

As you clear the way for spring and summer, lighten your load by relocating clothes, shoes and accessories you won't be wearing. Storing winter clothes is an easy step that makes a HUGE impact on your closet organization! Check out my post on how to store off-season clothing, including this essential prep step:

Seize the moment while you still remember what worked and what didn’t. Which outfits made you feel fantastic? What faded, stretched out or just didn’t fit? Only store clothes that have earned their place.

 If space permits, use storage boxes on garage shelving to store off-season clothes. If your garage is overflowing, we can help with that, too! Call Closets of Tulsa for garage storage ideas.

Tip 2: Sweat the small stuff—organize ties, jewelry, socks...

... Underwear, T-shirts, handbags, pajamas, belts—you get the idea! The smallest aspects of your wardrobe are often the most neglected. My post on cleaning out small accessories will help you declutter your closet and keep only what you really use. You'll feel lighter without all the excess, and you'll love the way your closet feels!

Tip 3: Uncollecting is the new collecting (Donate, sell and re-home your stuff!)

My guide to uncollecting was especially poignant post-holidays, but the mental math behind why we buy stuff and why we keep it applies year-round! Spring cleaning is prime time to let go of gifts, bad purchases and other stuff you no longer need. The guide will help you do it.

You'll also find my favorite ways to donate, sell and re-home clothes and other stuff, including Tulsa's chic consignment boutique, SoBo Co.!
