Are you sick of your clothes? Does your closet need a big declutter? Are you wishing for a more organized, streamlined wardrobe that’s easy to manage and maintain? Here are some things you can do to love your closet more:
7 Things to Do to Love Your Closet More
1. Do a massive closet declutter. Get everything that doesn’t belong in your closet out of your closet. Free up some space for your clothing, and whatever else is actually supposed to be in there.
2. Purge clothing that’s taking up real estate in your closet. Go through each item, and get rid of the items you no longer love, wear, or fit into. If you’re into making some extra cash off of your clothing, send some of your items to ThredUp, or hold agarage sale to offload the clothes to people who will take them away for cheap. Donate everything that doesn’t sell.
3. Put together three great outfits. That way, you’ll have something you like to wear for the next few days.
4. Arrange your clothing by color. This makes it a little easier to find things, and it looks pretty cool!
5. Make a list of items you need. That way, when you have a chance to pick up some new clothing items, you’ll be prepared and focused.
6. Constantly re-evaluate. Is your system working for you? Are there some clothes that just aren’t working for you any more? Get rid of the stuff you no longer use to cut down on clutter, and make room for the things you like. Spend some time researching your own personal style, and only purchase items that “fit” with your style.
7. Quality over quantity. When purchasing new clothing, go for items that fit well, and will last for a long time. I used to buy most of my clothing at Target (with coupons, of course!), and from the sale racks at different department stores. I scored some great deals, but the clothing didn’t last long, didn’t fit, and often, didn’t fit in with my own personal style. I started using Stitch Fix a few months ago, and I was blown away by the stuff they sent me. It fit perfectly, and was totally in-sync with my lifestyle and style preferences. Now I’m trying limit my clothing spending to an occasional Stitch Fix box instead of spending sporadically on low-quality items.
