We’re talking about – collecting, choosing, scraping and storing. The first rule of downsizing your closet is to get everything out and then collecting the items of one category at a time. Make separate piles for dresses, t-shirts, shirts, etc. Choose what goes and what stays by asking yourself if that piece of clothing brings you joy. If not, scrap it, but only after thanking it first. Store all the items that make you happy. Focus on what to keep rather than what to discard. This method will help you see that managing your closet space takes hardly any time.
