The Purge Week 6: Closets
Here we go again! Let’s continue on with our decluttering challenge and tackle everyone’s favorite: closets. Specifically, YOUR closet. We are going to stretch closets into TWO weeks because I know you guys (if you’re like me) have more than one closet that needs to be cleaned out.
There are a few rules I like to keep in mind when cleaning out my closet. Remember that KondoMarie philosophy we talked about-if it doesn’t bring you joy, get rid of it? We’re going to expand on that a little while focusing on our closet.
As you go through your clothes/shoes/accessories, ask yourself the following questions:
1. Does it fit?
Girl, closets are where good intentions go to die. By the time you can fit into those pants again, you’re going to want to reward your hard work with a NEW pair of pants! Ditch them.
2. When was the last time I actually wore it?
If you can’t remember, then it needs to go.
3. Is it damaged?
You’re never sewing those buttons back on, you’re not gonna patch those jeans, and that shirt has a hole in the seam. Just get rid of them!!!
4. Does it bring me joy?
More accurately, do you feel confident when you wear it? If you put it on and don’t feel great, it goes!
You can do it!!! Follow these four guidelines and show us your before and after pictures! Don’t forget to show us the pile of stuff you got rid of!!!
