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 is 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.
I know it is tempting to just glance through everything but this is key. You have to get it all out so you can really look it over.
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. You do not need to keep what does not work well.
Put the items you love in the keep pile.
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 of 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 any of the items or donate them to a local shelter?
Step 5: Put the clothing back.
Now it is time to put everything that you are keeping back! If you want you can hang items up by type: tanks, tees, sweaters, etc.
How to Keep Your Closet Decluttered
Now that you have a clutter-free closet, you want to keep it this way, but how? One thing that is helpful is every time you add a new item of clothing to your closet, get rid of one item (unless you are super minimal).
Another thing that is helpful is to do regular decluttering of your wardrobe every season. This will help keep things cleared out.
