When you're into fashion, it can be easy for your closet to quickly get packed full of clothing! But we recently implemented a SUPER EASY technique to keep the clutter away and get our closets under control. It's called the paper bag method...

It may not sound like the most glamorous way to get our closet Instagram worthy, but we promise it's incredibly easy!
Simply take a paper grocery bag (or any bag for that matter!) and put it in your closet. I just keep mine in the bottom of our closet so it's easily accessible.
Then, whenever you're getting ready for the day and you put on a piece of clothing that is torn, stained, not your style, not flattering anymore, etc....throw it in this bag!

If it's not good enough to wear today, it shouldn't stay in your closet! Why think about getting rid of it later, when you can purge it now?
Instead of doing a big purge a couple times a year, this daily method will save you tons of time and effort! I don't do large clean outs anymore, because I'm always getting rid of items in my closet.
