disorganized closet

Students are advised to continue practicing social distancing in anticipation of their upcoming return home for winter break.

Below are some constructive ways for students to occupy their time during quarantine.  

Before classes were moved online, students often could not find the time to maintain an organized living space while juggling classes. During the school year, clothes tend to pile up and junk tends to multiply as the semester goes on.

However, now that in-person classes have been become mostly virtual classes, students now find themselves with more free time than before. Students can use this extra time to their advantage by organizing their space. A clean living space leads to less stress on the occupant and a clear mind. Decluttering your closet is a great way to start.  

One way to organize your closet is to go through all of your clothes and separate the items you wear often and the items that you don’t wear enough. Once separated, you can remove these unnecessary items and give them to locations such as Goodwill so other people can find use for them and so you have less junk cluttering your area.

Another place to declutter in order to make your space a stress-free environment is to clean your drawers out and clear any more unnecessary items that take up space.  

This project will help to create a calming atmosphere to relax in as well as maintain a clear headspace for the remainder of the semester.
