If piles of clothes keep toppling over you every time you open your closet, perhaps it’s time you gave it a little makeover and got rid of all the clothes you don’t need. While it might be difficult to say goodbye to some of your favourite pieces, let’s face it, if they’re completely worn-out, they should no longer have a place in your closet. Here are several tips to help you sort out your clothes and store away seasonal clothes and pieces you don’t currently need.
