It took me more than four decades to comprehend the saying “less is more” and I’m referring to my clothes. It all started when I was cleaning my rather messy but organized (yes there is such a thing) bedroom. It came to the point that I ran out of room to store my clothes (I already have 6 bins excluding my overflowing closet). My cheeky son walked into my room and declared that if I don’t do anything about it, my room will turn into a landfill. Now, that’s SCARY!! I mean, I’m terrified of garbage let alone a landfill. But yeah, that was the turning point.
So, I’ve been donating and consigning my clothes and I am down to two bins so far. My goal this year is to declutter my house including my books, photos, and jewelry. Needless to say, I feel liberated now that I have less stuff.
I’ve read so many blogs about creating a capsule wardrobe such as this post. I also referred to this book a lot, when I get stuck on how to organize my clothes. It feels so good to step back from my endless cycle of fashion trends (hence the lack of fashion posts). I don’t feel obligated to buy new clothes. I’ve been saving money and will only buy classic pieces especially when it comes to handbags. How about you guys? Any strategy on minimizing your closet?
