Closet Cleaning 101

Closet Cleaning 101

Before school shopping happens, lets take a look at our closets first. We need to clear some space before we hit the racks. Here are a few quick tips to clean out and sort through your families wardrobes.

As you hold each piece, ask yourself the 7 following questions:

  1. Does this fit?
  2. Have I worn this in the last 12 months?
  3. Is it likely I will ever wear this again?
  4. Is this currently in style, and/or does this still accurately represent my style?
  5. If this is damaged in any way (e.g., piling, rips, stains, missing buttons, broken zippers, fading, etc.), will I actually make the effort to get this repaired in the near future?
  6. If I was shopping right now, would I buy this?
  7. And most importantly: Do I feel confident when I wear this?

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.

Be Clean, Be Happy, Be Healthy
