> Choose a free and happy time to start. You must have a few hours at your hand and maybe play music to feel good.
> Empty your bed or spread a sheet or newspapers on the floor.
> Take a section of the wardrobe ( example blouses or jewelry) and pull all the pieces out.
> Now you will have to divide these things in four categories. One - Keeps, Second - Donate, Third - It's so hard to decide and Fourth - I am so attached to this !
> If you need to try each piece, do that. If you can decide what category each piece belongs to just by looking, well you are a pro.
> Remember to keep high standards while spring cleaning. If it looks absolutely fabulous or is a great basic that goes with everything then only it is for keeps. After all you must feel good in your clothes each day.
> Once you have divided the categories, move onto the next section of your wardrobe.
