How to declutter the closet

Clutter in an apartment not only clutters up space but also spoils the overall impression of the home. The accumulation of many things that no one has used for a long time, but you feel sorry to throw them away, can create the illusion of a dirty and untidy apartment.

Perhaps it's time to clear your home of unnecessary things. It's best to start with the closet. Read OBOZREVATEL's article on how to free up space on the shelves and what you can throw away without hesitation.

Old clothes

If you keep clothes for all occasions, you probably have things falling out of your closet as soon as you open the door. Old, damaged, too big, or too small items should be thrown away. Or, if the items are new and in good condition, donate them to charity.

Old socks

Keeping old socks with holes in the heel is definitely not worth it. It is likely that you have long since bought and are using new ones. It also makes no sense to store socks without a pair for a long time. You should get rid of such junk.

Bed linen and towels

We don't recommend throwing away bedding and towels right away. But they usually take up too much space in the closet. Just put them in a sturdy chest of drawers in the bedroom or a drawer under the bed designed specifically for bedding and bedspreads.


Shoes should not be stored in a common closet. There is a place for them on shoe shelves that can be placed in the hallway. Seasonal shoes that will be needed in about six months are best kept in the pantry.


Experts do not recommend keeping Christmas garlands and toys, Easter decorative eggs and rabbits, and other cute holiday attributes next to clothes in the closet. Given that such decor is usually used once a year, it can be put away in the pantry or attic. Broken toys and souvenirs should be thrown away immediately.

Earlier we said that some jumpers have long gone out of fashion and look cheap and inappropriate. Read the article to find out which models to avoid and how to replace them.
