(NAPSI)—Spring can be a great time to sort through what you have and create more space by getting rid of the items you no longer need or use. To help, here are some tips to tackle those tedious tasks.

• Cleanse your closet. Typically, people only wear 25 percent of what they have in their closet, so 75 percent can go. Start by filling just one trash bag for donation. Make purging easier by following these guidelines: If it hasn't been worn in a year, has stains or is pulled, still has tags on it or you don't remember when it was bought—get rid of it.

• Uniformity is key. Invest in slim hangers that provide more room and make your closet look organized. For example, try the hangers in my line, the Jill Martin Set of 50 Space-Saving Flocked Hangers, QVC Item #V32141.

• Use all the space you have. Opt to buy items that are multipurpose, such as ottomans that are also made for storage, bins that are fashionable enough to be displayed, and jewelry organizers that can be hung on the wall for decoration.
