Making Space Today for a Closet Turnover

With temperatures changing, it only makes sense to talk about Seasonal Closet Turnover! That means fetching those jackets and booties you’ve been neglecting from the back of your closet and putting them back front and center.

Around this time of year, a lot of my clients request that I not only generally declutter their spaces but make them seasonally functional.

You can see from the photos above that I shifted my client’s warmer wardrobe and footwear to the front, while putting sundresses and sandals towards the back and out of reach. This allows my client to pull looks much quicker and avoid the dreaded morning panic over what to wear, focusing on other things instead.

Tip: If you live in a dated building or just happen to have a wooden closet pole that hangers snag on constantly — apply a little bit of wax and watch as your clothes effortlessly glide back and forth!

If you’re new to organizing, don’t fret. Closet turnovers may seem like a big undertaking at first, but in reality, they’re just a way for you to go shopping in your own closet. When you seasonally rotate your wardrobe, you’ll find items stuffed in the back that you completely forgot about. Now you can feel good about your space and have a brand-new fashion moment! By taking stock of what you already own, you can avoid buying unnecessary things and actually save money.

It's important to also make your closet turnover into an opportunity to help others. Items of clothing that are in good condition but no longer your style should be properly donated. With winter coming up, there are many organizations looking for specific items to help those less fortunate. That way you can feel good about buying a new coat while giving the old one to someone in need. Here are a few resources that you can utilize when seeking a place to donate.
