Did you know that studies show people only wear 20 to 38% of the clothing that they own.
How much do you have that you don’t wear?
Do you have stuff that doesn’t fit? If only you were smaller, taller, bigger, shorter. Well, let’s get real most of us are not going to get shorter or taller so if that is your reason you really have to let them go. As far as the smaller or bigger are you really going to do it? When you do will that be something you really want to wear? Probably not. So let go of it.
Do you have clothes that you have only worn one time? Bridesmaid dresses or the dress you bought for your child’s wedding but will never ever wear again? Hawaiian shirt that you would never wear outside of Maui?
How many identical yoga pants do you have that you bought at an amazing deal only to discover they are so shear you can see thru them? No I agree you really don’t want to show that much of your stuff. But why are you keeping them? Can you return them?
Are you holding on the something from a bad fad? bedazzled, grunge, flower child, rocker, or Mario Batali orange crocks? Are you keeping them for a Halloween costume?
Do you have a closet of business suits, ties or black pumps but now you never wear business attire? You know someone just starting out could maybe benefit from your old clothes when they go on their next job interview or start their first job.
Parka’s, down jackets, snow books, and mittens but you live in Arizona? Not needed in phoenix -EVER. So maybe you moved to the frozen tundra and you might want to rethink your shorts and flip-flops? Not really sure how often you will be wearing them.
Do you have linen dresses, shorts, or tops? Do you HATE to iron? How about dry clean only but you don’t dry clean? OK you are very very limited as to the number of times you can wear those before you have to dry clean or iron.
Do you think you can reduce the amount of stuff you have that you don’t wear? Will you get rid of excess clothing? You can do it. You might just find your new favorite that was stuffed way in the back and you forgot you owned.
