Closet Clean Up

IMG_8850

Paige and I have been totally obsessing over the weekend to-do’s in the new Ban.do planners, and we’re doing our best to stay on top of the directions every week. When we read “Clean your house in roller skates” a few Saturdays back, we got a little bit too excited. We’d been on the lookout for a reason to borrow some of Char Ziie’s incredible painted roller skates, and Ban.do had just handed us the perfect excuse.

Paige and I love cleaning of all sorts (personally I’m a big fan of dishes), but our favourite department to keep clean and tidy is most definitely our wardrobes. There’s something so satisfying about a perfectly organized closet where clothing is kept protected, clean, and ideally nicely scented. For us, there’s nothing more fun than sifting through clothing to reorganize, re-merchandise, and reinvent, and since we truly love it that much, we wanted to share some of our favourite tips with you!

1 // Colour code! There’s nothing more fun than a perfectly colour coded wardrobe, especially when you own a ton of different colours!

2 // Showcase your favourite seasonal pieces in creative ways around your apartment, like on a special rolling rack, on sequin hangers on a curtain rod, or even just hanging on a wall hook like art!

3 // Do a monthly closet clean out, and if you haven’t worn something in the last month, put it in a special section. If another month goes by and you still haven’t worn it, take it down to your local thrift shop and say goodbye. Clutter is the enemy of clean closets.

4 // If you buy something and don’t wear it within the week, exchange it. New clothing is like a new relationship: if you aren’t excited about it in the beginning, you won’t be excited about it later.

5 // Scent your clothing with your favourite signature perfume to keep everything fresh and ready to grab on the go. Plus, every time you look for something to wear you’ll be overwhelmed with a burst of fragrance!

*Bonus points if you’re able to wear rollerskates!
