Have a closet full of clothes and nothing to wear? Or maybe you have a "closet full of feelings".
I can’t count the number of times I had to dress for something and in the process of trying things on, I had clothes flung all over the bedroom and still did not have an outfit I liked.
And I will admit, in the past, I have gone shopping and purchased clothing because I was looking to feel better or just change how I was feeling.
Now, I go through my clothes once a year and try on everything I don’t routinely wear. If I don’t feel good in the garment, it goes. I do not want to take up valuable space in my closet with items that don’t work for me. I’d rather find something that does.
Going through clothing can have an emotional component. An outfit may remind you of where you last wore it and depending on the event, can be sad or joyful. Garments can reflect an earlier version of yourself, and letting go of them can feel like you’re loosing part of yourself. We all grow and change over time and our wardrobes should reflect our current lifestyle. A little Marie Kondo tip might help….thank the item and put it on the donate pile.
As with all things - you can’t organize until you know what you have - so going through your clothes has to come first. Then we can organize.
