Most people wear twenty percent of their clothes eighty percent of the time.
It would be unrealistic to get rid of that unused majority all at once. Instead, clean out your closet progressively. Start at one end. Look at each garment and assign it to one of three categories:
1. Keep. The keep items that should stay in your closet are those that you wear often. You may find special occasion and sentimentally significant items that you want to hold onto. Identify a separate storage space for these so your closet isn't so full.
Not all clutter is garbage
Sometimes the chaos is simply a matter of prized possessions being out of place.
Start a new habit. Whenever you're holding an item, don't put it down unless you're returning it to its home. This doesn't mean you have to pick up everything strewn around your house right now. But the next time you have something in your hand, don't set it back down just anywhere.
When you're decluttering, be sure there's enough light
You'll sort faster and be more motivated in a bright area.
