My closet is chock full of things I hardly wear. Trying to find the particular T-shirt I want is an exercise in frustration. I often pull everything out and toss them on the floor, and pick through the tangled mess. Generally I am in a hurry so I scrunch all the clothes together and shove them back in the shelf. It’s a mess.
But I find it difficult to toss anything. This stretched top might be still good under a jacket in winter. That blue top that I don’t particularly like always gets me compliments when I do wear it. The orange one I don’t like but I like the cami that goes with it and I don’t want to separate them. Oh, and this top, I forgot all about but it is gorgeous. And all those brown tops are still very serviceable for work.
Do you find it that hard to declutter? Does any of this sound familiar?
Given that I want to lead an organised life and that mess is the devil’s work, I am going to have to try harder. If an item is going to take up value wardrobe real estate, then it needs to pull its weight. There are no damaged or stained items, so time for three questions of my clothes:
1. Do I like it?
2. Do I look good in it?
3. Do I wear it?
Today’s decluttered items = Two items again today to bring me up to one item a day. A top that I don’t look good in and a pair of pants that I just don’t like. Off to the charity shop.
