A word advice. Don’t ask your husband or boyfriend this question. Men have trouble understanding a woman’s secret desire to put those little size rings in their closets like they have in department stores. Maybe something like – 8, 10, 12, “none of your business.” It would make it so much simpler to find those clothes we MIGHT fit into one of these days.
As your clutter coach, I have a better idea. First, spend an hour or two today replacing the winter clothes in your closet with spring duds. While you are at it, remove all clothes that…
- don’t fit or are not flattering;
- you don’t like or are uncomfortable;
- are stretched out, shrunken, faded or stained;
- you haven’t worn for a year; and
- need to repaired or dry cleaned.*
If you do this with detachment, you will have a closet full of clothes that you can wear. On the other hand, if your closet is empty – you have an excuse to go shopping.
I so love a happy ending. : )
*Put these items aside to make necessary repairs or drop off at the dry cleaners.
