Sometimes I think I write about clothes, closets, and wardrobes too often. I can’t help it though, clothes are one of my favorite things to declutter. The closet is one of the first things you see every day, and an organized closet means that every morning you start your day organized! How awesome is that!
On top of all that, if you are living with others, your wardrobe is one of the only things you have complete and utter control over. Those items are not shared with others in the household, and you have full reign over your small kingdom of textiles.
Today I am sharing a fantastic little guide on sorting through your clothes, by Sarah at Home Simply Organized. This guide and infographic will help you decide what to keep and what to toss.
How to Pare Down Your Wardrobe
This is one of the easiest to follow guide I have come across. I love the simplicity of it.
Follow the flow chart for your first pass, and answer the two simple questions – “Do I need it?” followed by “Do I love it?” So simple and yet so effective. After your first pass, use 4 simple follow up questions to sort through the unsure pile.
Read through the article, Sarah does a much better job of explaining than my summary here.
You guessed it! Pare down your wardrobe.
Use the techniques Sarah shared to pare down your wardrobe. Even if you already decluttered your closet and wardrobe, take another pass at it. Most times you can find at least another item or two that can be removed.
If you are new to decluttering then this is a great place to start. Make one pass using Sarah’s technique and don’t worry about how much you need to get rid of. This technique isn’t about quantity, it’s about identifying the clothes you use and love.
Let me know how it goes! After you go through your wardrobe, come back here and share your success in the comments section or on our Facebook page.
