The first step to any closet makeover is to empty it completely — and since Christine's closet was filled from floor to ceiling with stuff, that meant there was a lot of cleaning out to do. "This is a great opportunity for decluttering," said Dennis B, who recommended the four-box method. "Before you start emptying your closet, take four boxes and label them as trash, give away, keep, or relocate. As you remove items, place them in the appropriate box, and voila! Less stuff equals less clutter."
