Spring Cleaning My Closet

Before: Cramped quarters

With spring officially starting tomorrow, I thought this weekend was good as any other to do some spring cleaning in my closet. I usually go through twice a year and donate clothes that I haven't worn in awhile because in Manhattan you don't get very big closets! However, this time I thought I would take it a step further and lay everything out on the floor to really see what I had in my closet. And oh boy!

Kim has a lot of damn clothes

I laid my clothes out into categories: Blazers, skirts, pants, cardigans, blouses, t-shirts, dresses. I included my summer wardrobe items which I keep tucked away in a drawer as well.


This is the giant garbage bag I'll be bringing to Goodwill. In the bag are some shoes I'm giving as well.


I folded away my winter clothes in a drawer in my closet.


The final product! There's definitely more room in my closet and I feel more organized. I even reorganized my sock drawer which made me happy (it's the little things). My closet looks surprisingly colorful, I guess it's all the spring clothes. Overall, it was a great success!

Do you do some spring cleaning with your wardrobe?

  2. good for you for getting ahead of the game
    i am convinced that if i do my spring/winter change out that this warm weather will immediately go away and i won't have anything to wear.
    how is that for rationalization???

  5. I can't wait to put away my winter clothes and unpack my spring clothes! It's still too early for it here (we had 4 inches of snow this morning), but I'm looking forward to it! Then I'll see what to keep and what to donate, and what I need to buy:)
