After standing in my overcrowded closet this morning thinking the typical ‘I have nothing to wear’ I was inspired to do a closet purge: 7 pairs of sky high heels from my college days, 10 white t-shirts, 4 pairs of worn out uggs were all completely unnecessary and taking up valuable closet real estate. I have a hard time letting go of my things, clothes especially, but having an excess amount of unnecessary items makes me late in the morning and ends up collecting dust.
Once you start your closet purge and decide what to keep and what to get rid of, you’ll start noticing patterns. I gave away more items with designs/patterns, this has helped me when shopping to just stick with basic tops. If you haven’t worn it in a year it’s time to give it away, if there’s rips or stains…trash it. I found that going through my closet and asking myself the below questions helped me part with a lot of things I really didn’t need. Happy spring cleaning!
Does this fit?
Have I worn this in the last 12 months?
Will I ever wear this again?
Can this be worn with multiple outfits?
Does this still represent my style?
If I was shopping right now would I buy this?
