Sort all the clothes - Pants, shirts, skirts, dress, office-wear, inner-wears and set of clothes - Pile them separately.

Pick each cloth and think. Clothes which fit and look nice on you and is in good condition, will directly go back to your closet.

Trash - All clothes which are really in bad condition will go to the box named trash.

Donate - Old Clothes which are in good condition, but you are surely not going to wear goes in donation bag.

Sell or Donate - Good clothes which don't suit you or don't fit you, sell them or donate them.

Unsure - If you are not sure whether to keep, donate or trash, put them into unsure bag.

Arrange - Soft fabric or any cotton clothes can easily get wrinkled if they are not placed properly. Therefore hang the soft and delicate fabrics (
shirts, skirts or trousers) on hangers. Jeans pant or T-shirts which are less likely to get wrinkles can be folded and kept on shelves.
Under garments - Only keep the bras which are good in shape and fit you correctly.

Remember 'Unsure' Box?
