the main organization can start in your closet. Do not just pull out winter clothes from the hanger or out of the drawer and store them in Tupperware while you store your heavy winter clothes to make room for your lightweight spring outfits. Him and make a selection Have you put that item all in the winter? If not, now may be the time to add to the donation pile. Do not leave contaminated clothing or clothing that needs repair to handle months from now. Go to the dry cleaners with winter coats, sweaters and pants that can’t be machine washed, sew loose buttons and make sure all the zippers are in working condition.
3. Dusting from top to bottom:
