If you’ve been reading my blog for any length of time you know I’ve been working on de-cluttering our home in preparation for an eventual move. Even if you aren’t preparing for a move spring is a great time to do some spring-cleaning. Do you have clothes cluttering up your closet? Clothes that you’re just hanging on to because of a memory associated with them? Or perhaps it’s a favorite pair of jeans that used to fit and almost fits now but you haven’t worn them for ages. I have numerous things in my closet that I haven’t worn in some time for various reasons. For example a sweater that my mom knit more than 50 years ago! That is so hard for me to throw out but I haven’t worn it in years. Maybe it’s time to donate?
I’ve read about tips like putting your clothes on hangers and then hanging the hangers backwards in your closet. After a year throw out all the clothes that you haven’t touched and the hangers are still backwards! Great idea but I’ve never done it.
Recently a company called Tommy John created this amazing graphic to help you purge your closet of unwanted clothes. Tommy John is a men’s underwear company, but the graphic works equally as well for a woman! If I follow these simple steps I will definitely have fewer clothes hanging in my closet! I love the fact that I can answer a few simple yes and no questions and have a cleaner closet! I definitely hold on to too many clothes.
How is your closet? Do you regularly clean it out and get rid of or donate clothes you don’t wear? I’m not encouraging you to go spend more, but to take the steps to have a manageable wardrobe.
