Clean out Your Closet by Asking Yourself These Easy Questions ...


We've all been there - standing in front of our overly packed closet thinking we have nothing to wear. It's because all our good pieces are often hidden underneath pieces we all know we'll never wear, yet refuse to throw out. Why do we do that?! If cleaning out your closet is your next mission, ask yourself these easy questions when deciding whether or not to keep an item. It's time to make out with the old and in with the new, right?

Do You Love It?

Yes: Yay! This item's going to the 'Keep' pile!
No: Make like Elsa and let it go. Donate the piece to charity, give away to your friends/siblings or you can even re-sell the item online. If you don't absolutely love the piece, let's be real, you probably won't wear it anytime soon. It'll just be taking up space in your closet!


Does It Fit?

Yes: It's another addition to the 'Keep' pile.
No: If all you have to do is get it tailored, go on and do so. However, if it's too many sizes too big or small, what're you gonna do with it? Get rid of it and make someone else happy with it!


Is It Stained?

Yes: Decide if this piece is really worth taking to the dry cleaners.
No: If it fits well and you love it, keep it!


When Was the Last Time You Wore It?

In the past year: Keep it! Now that you've cleared out most of your closet, you'll have more chances to wear this.

Way over a year ago: Get rid of it. Even if you keep telling yourself you'll get around to wearing it eventually, you probably won't.

How often do you go through your closet?
