How much of what you have in your closet do you actually wear on a daily basis? When the seasons change, it’s a good time to clean up and get rid of things that haven’t been used in a long time but are taking up valuable space. Also, donate it or give it to someone else so it can have a new life.
So you don’t get too overwhelmed while cleaning out your closet, here are some things you should get rid of:
Clothes from the past: At the time, they were cool, but now they look old. This doesn’t apply to classic clothes that never go out of style and are worn for many years.
Clothes you didn’t bring to be fixed: If you’ve had clothes that need to be fixed for a long time (change zipper, raise hem, etc.) and you don’t plan to fix them right away, it’s best to get rid of them since it’s likely you’ll never fix them. The same goes for parts, accessories, or jewelry that are broken or missing.
Anything that doesn’t fit you: Don’t wait until you lose weight to put those pants back on. Keep only what fits you now.
Clothes that you haven’t worn in over a year: If you forgot you had them or if the label is still on them, it’s because they didn’t convince you. Find a new owner for them.
Old and worn T-shirts and sweatshirts to be at home: Even if you don’t go anywhere, feeling good about how you look and dress can make you feel better. Throw away those clothes that are almost as worn out as rags.
Get busy and make the most of your closet. When you’re done cleaning and putting things away, you’ll be surprised at how much you’ve gathered!
