Organizing Your Spring Closet

purge and organize all you clothes for spring

Now that it is finally warming up outside (and hopefully stays that way) it was time to get my closet switched from my winter wardrobe to my summer one.  I love this seasonal task.  I love pulling out clothes that I have missed for the last 6 months.  I also love the chance it gives me to go through my closet and get rid of items that I don't wear, I'm tired of, don't fit, etc.

One of the things I loved about the floorpan of this house was the quite large master closet.  I have big plans to sometime make it really organized and beautiful with built-ins.  But for now, we still have quite a bit of space with what the builder put in.  With this closet, I am able to keep most of my off-season clothes still hung up, but a few things I put away in bins on the top shelf.  But I usually move my off-season clothes to the back, so what I am wearing is front and center.  So all of my short-sleeve shirts were pushed to the right of the closet.

As I went through all of my shirts, switching the summer items to the left and the winter items to the right I ask myself the 7 Questions to Ask When Cleaning Out Your Closet by the Every Girl.  These are great questions that really help you evaluate if you should keep and item of clothing and why.  It also helps you make sure you are only keeping the best items in your closet.  I was happy to get rid of a full trash bag full of clothing that will bless someone else.

When I organize my shirts, I like to keep like items together.  Starting from the left we have tanks, old tees (I mainly use for working out in the yard), layering tees, tees, nicer shirts, short-sleeve sweaters, dressy shirts.

From dressy shirts we move to jackets, and then into some of my winter shirts that I didn't put up in the bin.

On the lower rod I hang capri's, shorts, a few jeans, cardigans, hoodies, and then some other jeans (that are actually too big right now.)  My capri/shorts/pants section is looking pretty skimpy right now because I am in the process of losing 30lbs (already down 22!).  Once I finish losing my weight I will purchase a few more in the right size.

On the right side of my closet I have my skirts and dresses, hanging shelves with my PJs, and shoes.  That cute chevron bin (from Marshall's) is my 80% bin.  You know that pile of clothes on your floor of things that can be worn again but don't necessarily get hung up? Like my sweats I quickly threw on to take the kids to school.  That goes in this cute bin instead of getting thrown on the floor.  Kevin has one on his side of the closet too.

Now my closet is all set for Spring! Have you gotten out your Spring wardrobe yet? Do you switch things with the season?
