Smarter Style: My closet revamp-redo resolution

I, Heather, hereby decree my Closet Revamp-Redo Resolution. I promise, during the 12 months of 2013, to do the following:

1. Toss (or Donate) the Unused. All of those sweaters I haven't worn since 2010, the five t-shirts and three leggings that I have kept to work out in (ha!), the two LBDs that I have never ever worn because I bought them...but then decided I really didn't like them...and forgot to take them back? They are all taking up precious space.

2. Repeat number 1 at least every three months or when the temperature changes.

3. Find a closet organizational system that works. Color-coding, seasonal, by type of item -- I will think about and see what works and what doesn't. If it isn't working, I will redo the system ASAP...and not wait for the next decade to come along.

4. Buy wardrobe items that I like, when I see them. This is to combat the slow closet takeover by "worn-only once, didn't really like, don't match anything" items that are often bought when I am rushed to get something for that party or a certain occasion.

5. Figure out my style. This will help bigtime with achieving number 4 and number 1. How I will do this exactly will be tackled in another post. 

Does your closet need your attention in 2013?  How so...or are you super-organized in that area already? Are you working on finding your style -- or have you found it?

Needs to be weeded out with all the clthes I don't wear ::sigh::
It's on my list to  do :)

A couple of my closets need some major attention... I'm going to tackle them once the kids go back to school.

Nope. I revamped mine in 2012. So far so good.

I'm not worried about organization, but I do need to weed through all my clothes.

I need to clean out T-shirts, but otherwise my closet is good.  We put up an organizer a few years ago and so the clothes stay well organized.  BUT, the floor is another matter.  I periodically organize my shoes, but my DD LOVES to go through them and mess them up.

I got mine in pretty good shape in September. I'm very good at organization but it was getting money to buy all the containers for a very large closet. It was my birthday present to myself.

My husband just got me an entire new wardrobe (all because my Christmas gifts didn't arrive on time, lol). Did my closet need to be revamped... No.
