Closet Cleanout

I’ve been putting off a closet cleanout for far too long now, but yesterday I finally gave in and cleaned out over half of my closet. And boy did it feel good. It’s something that I should’ve done back in spring, but kept putting it off or telling myself that “I’m going to wear that when I lose weight/it cools off/etc.” Know the funny thing about that? I’ve still not worn any of those things. So yesterday I said goodbye to everything in my closet (minus sweaters and the like) that I’ve not worn in the last two months.

Needless to say, it became pretty apparent to me that I’m a serious outfit repeater. Time to start mixing and matching pieces a little bit more. Any of y’all have tips on keeping your closet at bare bones? I always set out with the intention of keeping my closet cleaned out and focus on the basics, but I always seem to get off track.

  • Hang all of your coathangers facing one direction … when you wear that item … turn it the other way.

    That way you can always see instantly what you haven’t worn in a while! 😉

  • i did a totally huge massive purge as I was moving and now, everything I own fits in half a closet + 1 dresser. Since I work from home it’s a whole bunch of basics tees/tanks and leggings while I’m home alone and my favourite tops, jeans, and dresses when I have even plans. It’s an amazing feeling.

    what do you use to slick your hair back like that?

    • I’m lucky enough to have thick hair, which means it slicks back pretty well all on it’s on, and I tame any flyaway hairs with a grooming pomade.

  • Good for you for doing a clean out. I have a lot and can’t bear to part with some items even if I’d never wear them again.
