Is your closet and drawers bulging at the seams? Or maybe you have a 2nd or 3rd closet with even more clothes?
Clothing is tough not only because of sizing, variety, and colors, but also because of emotional attachment. Setting up your clothes for today, and not the past or future, will help you pare it down.
My #1 recommendation is to go through your clothes and accessories with a buddy. A friend, a family member, a professional organizer, or an image coach, can ask you questions to help you make decisions. Ultimately, you want to keep your favorites, and limit the “just in case” pieces.
#2 is to fill your closet and drawers with only what currently fits. Your favorite pieces that are too small (or too large) can go into a bin labeled with the size or weight of when they will fit. Then too, seeing them all together might encourage you to get back to wearing them sooner than later.
#3 is to sort like things together, by color. Tops can be split into long sleeve and short sleeve, or you can leave those together and keep an area for dressy and casual. Pants would go together by regular length and shorter lengths, and suits and jackets can have their own section. Whatever you choose, organizing by how you get dressed will save you time.
For items you are unsure about, you can pack them in a box and mark it with “if I haven’t opened by date, then donate this box”.
Opening up space in your closet gives you options for new items, and that new “look” right around the corner. You’ll also find it quicker to decide what to wear, and you’ll know when you need that specific new piece!
