Declutter Seasonal Clothing – Getting Organized

Getting Organized:
In your home and homeschool
       
Today, let’s spend 15 minutes decluttering seasonal clothes. Look through your warm weather clothes. What did you not wear in the spring or summer? Unless it is a special event outfit, consider letting it go. Check your children’s closets. Pull out anything that does not fit and put these clothes in a box to donate. Check their winter coats and see if they still fit. If not, you can donate the coats that are too small and start looking for a replacement before it gets too cold. It has been a very warm fall in the South, so we are still wearing our warm weather clothing. Eventually, we will need our winter coats, and we will be ready.

While you are looking in the closets, check shoes, too. My sons seem to outgrow shoes more than once a season, and I can always find a pair of shoes in the back of the closet that no longer fits. So take a few minutes to declutter some shoes!

Have a wonderful day!
