Quick Guide to a Winter Closet Clean Out

Who says you have to save your big closet clean out until Spring? The sun is officially setting later each day, so it’s the perfect time to take advantage of the burst of energy that comes with a bit of extra daylight! ✨

I have three easy steps you can follow to clean out your closet for this Winter season AND help you play your part in circular fashion* for years to come (*a sustainable approach to fashion where clothes are reused and recycled in endless amounts of ways, instead of throwing them away). ♻️

🔎 Figure out what’s already working

Imagine your closet as a place you can emerge from each day with a layer of armor that helps you take on the world  💪. I know that might seem impossible with a prom dress stuffed in the corner, or an old winter coat blocking the flared corduroy pants you just bought – but that’s all background noise for now! Time to take a deep breath and figure out what does work first. 

First, ask yourself how you want to look and feel this season, and set aside the basics and classics that’ll fulfill that vision 👁️‍🗨️. Now comes the fun part – what are some unique gems buried in your closet that will show the world your outfits are made for you and no one else? Set these aside too! (Need some help? Make a 2022 vision board).

The answers might come right away – but if they don’t, you can always keep mental notes over a week or two on the pieces you are drawn to/wear the most, and set those aside in your closet 💭

💚 Make your space sustainable

If anything is constant, it’s change, but creating a space where you can cycle through changes and evolve will help you stay grounded for the long run. To keep the closet clean out momentum going throughout the year (and the year after that 🤩), try setting aside an area for all things resell. This could be a section of your closet, a corner of a room, or even an attic space, where you go to decide what you want to donate, resell, and buy for yourself. You can set up some warm lighting, a full-length mirror to try out different looks (and model items to list on Curtsy! 📸), and a cozy chair or floor pillow to pack up your sales and browse for those hidden gems (bonus points if you call this your Curtsy Corner 😉).

💎 Thrift Your Dream Closet

At this point, you probably can’t wait to level up your winter wardrobe with key pieces – like the perfect pair of platform Converse to go with your distressed dad jeans. But after taking inventory of what works, note what’s desperately needed. Maybe you’re way more comfortable in oversized denim this year instead of bombers. 

Made it a goal to work out more? Why not treat yourself to Lululemon leggings in your favorite color? Or maybe you’ve picked up painting again and want a cute patterned bandana to keep your hair out of your eyes while you focus. Whichever items you end up thrifting, they’ll mean a lot to the person you’re working hard each day to become 🎇

By cleaning out the old and creating a closet space you want to keep going back to, you’ll turn sustainable fashion into a practice for life 🌍💙

How to Make a 2022 ✨Vision Board ✨

If 2021 taught us anything at Curtsy, it was that if you manifest hard enough, write down your goals and keep a positive attitude, your dreams can become reality. 2022 can really be YOUR YEAR if you start it off right! With the New Year quickly approaching, now is the time to start thinking about how you’ll create your 2022 Vision Board. We’ve got all the answers for the Curtsy community to manifest all your dreams and goals in 2022!


✍️ Write down your personal goals for the year

To start off your 2022 vision board, you are going to want to take note of all the ideas, goals and dreams you’d like to achieve in the new year. Personal, financial, educational/career and social are great places to start! Decide on the ones that are the most achievable and highlight them.

📸 Create a “2022” board on Pinterest to add photos that align with your goals

Head over to your Pinterest account, create a 2022 board and start adding photos, quotes and ideas that align with your goals list. Pick a color scheme and images that are different sizes to create a true collage. Next, download the photos that you want to piece together!

Download a collage app 

Use a free app like Canva or Picsart where you can create a collage on a blank canvas. Resize the images however you like, then save your final collage in 16:9 ratio for your phone wallpaper!

🎉 Make the collage your wallpaper & take on 2022!

Now you are all ready to take on the New Year with your goals, ideas and dreams at the forefront. 2022 is your oyster so put your new vision board everywhere and keep manifesting the year ahead!’
