the spring purge.

I’ve been a cleaning machine lately. I have been clearing out my parents garage and the basement, going through stuff, throwing stuff out and donating bags upon bags of clothes and other items. I’ve also gone through my own closet and belongings and managed to do the same. It feels really powerful to rid my self of this extra weight of all this stuff!

So I would like to share a little tip with you that I came up with to help in clearing up some closet space if you have tons of stuff like me!

1. Go through your closet and take out things that you have never worn, whether it is a pair of jeans, a shirt or a pair of shoes.
2. Separate these items either on one side of your closet if you have that much room or on a chair in your bedroom. I have a rack I put mine on.
3. When your getting ready every morning, take a look at that separate closet of goods and work those items into your attire that day and as often as possible.
4. After awhile of this you can put the items back into your regular closet that you’d like to ultimately keep. If you don’t want it you could donate it, put it on ebay, try and sell it to a Plato’s Closet(or something similar), or give to a friend! And if there is still something there that you just don’t have the desire to wear, get rid of it! If you don’t love it, you don’t need it!

I did this and I actually am wearing different stuff I forgot I had, got rid of stuff and I *drumroll* HAVE ROOM IN MY CLOSET…for new clothes!
