Tips for How to Declutter Your Clothes
Our closets and dresser drawers can be a source of frustration and can lead to frustration with all things clothing related. I cannot count how many times I have opened the closet only to exclaim I have nothing to wear! It is hard when nothing fits right, is worn out, or not something you love.
However, I do believe that we can create a closet of clothes we love. In fact, this is why I have slowly been putting together a semi-capsule wardrobe.
In order to cultivate a closet we love, we have to get into the thick of it.
Step 1: Take all of your clothes out of the closet and dresser and place them on the bed.
Step 2. Try everything on and look at yourself in the mirror.
Ask yourself these questions: Do I Love this? Does this fit me well? Does it have damage?
If you answer no to any of these questions, place the piece of clothing to the side. We do not need to keep what does not work well.
Step 3. Look at what you have placed in the keep pile.
Lay everything out and look for any holes in your wardrobe.
Items I love to have on hand: Jeans, White Tee, Black Tee, Cardigans, Leggings, Couple Dresses. I have found having the essentials helps and then you can fill in the gaps.
Step 4. Evaluate what is in the do not keep pile.
Can you resell or donate?
Step 5: Put the clothing back.
I prefer to use all white hangers in my closet and then have a couple of drawers in our dresser. Honestly, I do not fold a specific way and just put things in there rolled up.
