Yesterday’s blog post, Fall Forward, was full of great tips for how to ease your way into fall and after I published it I remembered one more great tip to help you get ready for the new season and also clear out the clutter in your closet.
One of the greatest tricks I was ever taught was to go through all your in season clothes at the end of that season. This works better because you still have a clear picture in your mind of what you wore and what you didn’t. Go through all of your spring and summer stuff and if you did not wear a particular item this season get rid of it because chances are if you didn’t wear it, you won’t wear it next year. The one exception to this would be items that no longer fit and you want to hang on to them on the off chance you may gain or lose weight and it is probably best to box these items up or put them in another closet so they don’t crowd what you are currently wearing.
Another great idea is to write down items that you are needing to complete an outfit, say you have a great skirt but need a coral tee to go with it, if you have a running list of items you need you can keep an eye out for them when you are shopping. This is a great idea to do for your entire wardrobe. Make the most of your closet!
