Spring Cleaning Tip #8: Clean Out Your Closet
Thinking of cleaning out your closet? "Move all the clothing into the bedroom," advises Thumbtack home organizer Diane Lowy. "Put stacks of 10 items at a time on the bed. Evaluate into three categories: worn in the past month, keep, donate. Put the clothing you've worn for work in the past month back in the section of your closet that is easiest to reach. This should be 10 hangers per foot."

"Put 'weekend' clothing in the next easiest to reach section. This section can be tightly packed (since you have more time to look for just the right thing on the weekend). Put the remaining keep items in harder to reach places or even packed up. Doing this exercise regularly enables you to shop your own closet."
