Do: Start cleaning that closet and take inventory for the Fall Season. Follow these simple tips to get that closet in order and get ready for Summer shopping.....Identify your five must-have items!

  • Create 4 piles and spread them in separate areas of the room, (this will help you keep it organized).

  • Pile #1 consist of things you don't want but are too expensive to just dump. Try selling on Ebay or to a local consignment shop.

  • Pile #2 is the group of clothing you hate or even embarrassed to admit you bought (like those fuchsia platforms on sale at Daffy's). Head these unwanted pieces to the Goodwill Clothing and Textile Recycling in Brooklyn.

  • Pile #3, items you actually like and wear often should do an about face back into your closet.

  • Lastly in Pile#4 gather clothing you wear but it needs to be altered or hemmed. Each week drop a piece off at your local tailor or Dry Cleaners and "Get it Right"...
