Ways to Simplify Your Wardrobe

I make an effort to purge my clothes closet, and there is one question that I have found helpful to ask myself when trying to decide whether or not I should keep specific items from my wardrobe.

When I decide it’s time to tackle a closet purge, I tackle the process in these three steps.

Step 1:

Remove everything from my closet (or dresser)!

This allows me to take a close look at each item. I check for stains/wear.

Step 2:

Think carefully about each item that I return to the closet/dresser.

I purge items that are stained/worn. I purge items that no longer fit.

Step 3:

Make smart decisions about what to do with items I have purged! 

What do I do?

Return any/all recently purchased/gifted items that still have the tags – Yes, even if I don’t have a receipt.

Donate items! I love being able to help my favorite charities while also being able to take a tax deduction – It’s a win/win for everyone!

Sell higher end name brand items on consignment or on eBay (or another great on-line marketplace – new options seem to be popping up all the time)!
