Closets are nestled in dark corners of our homes and exist to secretly tuck away all our clothes, shoes, towels and general miscellaneous items. “Where the heck did this knick-knack even come from?” you wonder as you shrug and jam more items deep into your closet’s hidden spaces.
In this video, Yumi helps you confront your messy closet head-on. Decluttering can sometimes feel so overwhelming that you don’t even know where to begin. It can be paralyzing. By breaking the process down into five easy steps, Yumi gives you the tools you need to go from a messy hoarder to an organized superstar with your #pinterestgoals on point.
Letting go of clothes can be a surprisingly emotional process. Sometimes you’re just not fully sure if getting rid of an item is a decision you may later regret. This video helps makes sense of the doubt that can arise during the declutter process, with the helpful “maybe” box approach. The “maybe” box buys you time to really consider whether to keep or let go of an item you are on the fence about.
Make decluttering social by getting your friends involved. They make cleaning a more fun way to spend your day and offer great second opinions if you’re not fully sure if you should let go of those gaucho pants. They really could come back in style again, right? Your friend can serve as a realty-check. “No. Those gaucho pants are the worst. It’s time to let them go.”
Decluttering is always a bit overwhelming, but the most beautiful element to come of it is that you get to end the process by donating items that no longer serve you to someone else who can really benefit from them. Check out this video and get to cleaning today!
