"I have nothing to wear!" - Yet you have a wardrobe FULL of clothes.
I tend to hear this all of the time and its a very common condition. Many of us find it difficult to part with our clothes, even if they dont fit any more, they are out of fashion or fo no other reason than they cost $$ and i cant bear to throw it away!
Its time to DE-CLUTTER people! We wear only 20% of our clothes, 80% of the time as we are creatures of habit.
Some ways that can help you pare down that 80% that rarely gets worn is to ask yourself several questions and act accordingly.
Do I love it or do I just love the idea of it? – If you just love the idea of skinny jeans but can never make yourself never wear them, let them go.
Does it make me feel good about myself? – Why keep anything that doesn’t make you feel fabulous about the wonderfully unique person you are.
Am I just keeping it because it was expensive? – That is a hard one for many people. Just because it was expensive doesn’t mean it needs to stay in your life.
Try this handy trick:
Turn all of the coat hangers backwards and then everytime you wear something and put it back , turn the coat hanger around. You will very quickly see what you are always wearing and what you can consider departing with.
So go take a look in your closet with the 80/20 rule in mind. What are your 20% clothes and what are your 80% clothes?
