BEFORE READING: Please refer back to the sustainably decluttering your closet blog post! We have some great tips in there on how to get started with sorting out your closet. 

If you have to stay home and binge Netflix for the foreseeable future, there’s a chance that you may be drawing some inspo from Marie Kondo to start decluttering your home.
