Unlike popular belief having too many clothes is actually more of a burden than a blessing. It not only takes longer to decide what to wear, but also creates more laundry to wash. You either end up wearing things you don’t really like or not wearing them (in which case, why own them?). Here are some simple steps to purge your closet
On an average, it’s believed 80% of your wardrobe is barely worn which means there are majority of your clothes taking up your closet space for no good reason. Expiration tags on clothing like would certainly eliminate a lot of confusion especially when you are on a strict closet purge mode. Here’s how you start:
Clear time in your schedule to really get down to the nitty-gritty of purging what you no longer wear. Be strict and only keep clothes that you actually wear and love. Dedicate a hefty chunk of the day to go through every single item in your wardrobe, while keeping in mind it is terrifyingly overwhelming. I prefer to divide and conquer, in this way I have dedicated attention to my wardrobe. Sort through your shoes one day, followed by tops and outerwear the following weekend.
As you scrutinize each piece, ask yourself the 7 following questions:
If you answer a firm "no" to any of the above, it’s time to say sayonara and decide whether to sell, donate, swap, or toss the item.
Now that you have everything that you really love and feel great in organise your closet with these key factors:
· Stay in season: Pull out all your sweaters and boots and stick to cottons, muls and linen during this season.
· Birds of a feather: Organize by item. All blazers need to be on the rack together. All long sleeve blouses together, as well as short ones with all the short-sleeved blouses and shirts.
· Get creative: Have fun with your clothes and maximise your wardrobe. Enjoy being your own stylist.
· List it: Make a list or a virtual wardrobe. This will help you fill the gaps in your wardrobe or remind you of what you already own.
· Go Virtual: Check out apps like StyleBook, BonRack - Your Virtual Closet and Smart Dresser Virtual Changing Room.
