Is your closet a 40% or a 60%
The average woman only wears 40% of the clothes in her closet. That means 60% of her closet never sees the light of day.
Now is a great time to clean out your closet. You may find some new treasures that you had forgot you bought.
Reasons to toss:
- it’s underwear. No none wants to wear someone else’s used underwear
- it’s stained, faded or bleached
- it’s ripped, torn, or otherwise broken
OK so if it’s broken will you fix it – Can you fix it now? Did you fix it?
How long has it been broken? That long? Really are you going to fix it – accept that you most likely will not. So it is trash or can you donate it?
Reasons to Donate:
Do you like it?
It is still in style?
When did you wear it last? 6 months, 1 year or more?
Does it fit?
Does it look good on you or is it a strange color that you don’t really look good in?
Did someone give it to you? But you don’t like it or it doesn’t flatter you. Is it a scarf but you live in Arizona?
If you saw it in a store today would you buy it?
How long have you had it? Does it still have tags? Can you return it?
If you would not sell it at a garage sale you probably should not donate it to a charity. If you can’t sell it they probably can’t either.
Reasons to keep:
It’s none of the above.
Is it just dirty? Wash it and hang it up.
So let’s sort your stuff. Take it all out of the closet. When I say all I mean everything.
Think about what we just discussed and decide if you should keep it, donate or sell it or is it just trash.
Now when you put what you decided to keep in your closet you will have 100% of your stuff that you will actually wear. Did you find something you forgot you had? Did you find that you were wearing only 40% of what was in your closet? What was your percentage?
