Spring Cleaning your Closet
Although it’s still a little chilly, spring is on the way. Soon you can banish those turtle necks and sweaters to the less accessible sections of your closet and drawers to make room for your spring and summer clothes.
As you put your fall and winter clothes away, determine if there were any items you didn’t wear this past year and ask yourself why not.
Is it because…..
You no longer like the item?
The piece is no longer in style?
You are tired of wearing it?
It’s not in good condition?
It doesn’t fit?
You don’t like how you look or feel in it?
The item needs to be fixed or altered but you are unlikely to do so?
If the answer is “yes” to any of these questions, it sounds like a good time to say “goodbye”!
Don’t forget to ask yourself these same questions for your spring and summer clothes and consider your shoes and handbags as well. Remember, you only have a finite amount of space for your clothing and you don’t want to waste it on clothes you won’t wear.
Also, by going through this process, you’ll be able to see if there are items you need to shop for to complete your wardrobe. And, as we always tell our clients, it’s so much easier to get dressed everyday when you know that everything in your closet fits and is something you want to wear!
