Do You Switch Out Your Clothes Every Season?

In Newsletters on November 6, 2013 at 4:07 pm


I moved into a smaller home. This means, smaller closet! At first I decided to keep only the current season in my new tiny closet. After switching out my seasonal wardrobe twice, I noticed that I was moving clothes that I was not wearing. The big switch was not necessary! I made all my clothes fit and I don’t even miss what I purged and donated!

I am sharing this story to challenge you to think, is the big seasonal switch worth it to you?

*Group similar pieces and compare them to each other. If you have 10 black shirts, your most likely to only wear your top 3 favorites, ditch the others!

*You wear 20% of your clothes 80% of the time.

*If you have trouble purging and letting go, try setting aside some of the clothes you don’t wear. See if you miss them.

*Sometimes our clothing might be memorabilia that we don’t wear. (One of my clients collects concert t-shirts. We put them into a large bin, instead of taking up precious closet real estate!)
