Though it isn’t spring yet, you do have the chance to get ahead of the game before winter and get rid of some things you no longer need. It can be difficult to let things go — there is sentimentality in keeping items that you might no longer need but you want. Understanding the line between necessity and desire for your items is an essential part of cleaning out your closet.
Everything you learn about cleaning out your own closet you can then use on others’ overflowing ones! Sometimes all we need is a little extra help. Before you start cleaning out your friends’ closet though, you’ll want to make sure that your own is in tip top shape.
If you live by certain rules with not only buying clothes but getting rid of them, your closet will probably transform just by doing these simple things. Moving forward, you’ll probably have to clean out your closet less frequently than ever because you’re not buying as many items, and you have an easier time getting rid of them when you really need to.
If you want to be an expert closet cleaner, save money and potentially make money, and you want to do some good for your community, just follow this advice. Once you’re done, reward yourself with https://www.foodpanda.pk/restaurant/s3jr/burger-lab-smchs.
Do You Love It?
Before you purchase an item, it’s always worth it to ask yourself this question as you examine it in the mirror: ‘do I love this?’ If the pieces of clothing you buy, you love, then you’ll want to keep them for a long time and take better care of them because they’re special. Imagine if you had a closet full of things you loved?
You might be asking how do I know I love it? There’s a pretty quick way of answering this question. For example, if you try something on in a store and are not sure if you want to buy it or not, leave it at the store and continue elsewhere. If you don’t want anyone else to buy the item or it’s the last one in your chosen size and color, then put the item on hold. If you find yourself thinking about the item as you walk around, go back to the store and purchase. If the item isn’t holding your attention, then you probably don’t love it.
When is the Last Time You Wore it?
We like to keep strict rules about how long you should keep a piece of clothing if you haven’t worn it in ages. If you haven’t worn an item in a year, it’s probably best to get rid of it (unless it’s a family heirloom or other very important item not to be disposed of unless you have moths!).
Donate or Make a Buck
Once you’ve cleaned out your closet, donate the items that could still be used by the community, and try and sell any clothes in really good shape to thrift stores, consignment stores, or online.
