Is it weird that I like decluttering my wardrobe? I’ve mentioned a wardrobe clear out before on my blog, and I must admit that I really enjoy it. Even though sometimes it can difficult, I am a hoarder, so I do struggle with letting things go. Which is why I put together a list to help me know what pieces to keep and what to declutter.
Just to be clear when I say declutter, I mean selling it or donating it to charity or a friend. Don’t just throw it in the bin.
This is Five Things to Declutter From Your Wardrobe!
It Still has the Price Tag on
This is a clear sign that you probably aren’t going to wear that item. If something has been hanging in your wardrobes for years with the price tag still attached then it is very unlikely that it is going to get worn.
It Doesn’t Fit
I’m sure that I can’t be the only one who has kept clothes that don’t fit. I’ve held onto clothes with the hope of fitting into it one day, but all it did was make me feel bad about myself and nobody needs that kind of negativity in their life. It’s best to get rid.
I must admit that I struggle with this one. Some items can fit really well, look great, but they’re uncomfortable. In fact I’ve got a top in my wardrobe right now that I don’t like wearing because it has little sequins on that irritate my arms. I keep it because it’s pretty; I know, shameful. When in reality life is too short for uncomfortable clothes.
You Haven’t Worn it in Years
I’m sure we’ve all kept something with the hope of wearing it soon, only for it to go unworn. If I’m struggling with keeping something that I haven’t worn, I challenge myself to wear it before my next declutter. Sometimes when you come to style the item, you realise that you don’t like it and it could go to a much better home.
You’re Only Holding Onto it For the Memories
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not talking about getting rid of your wedding dress or anything sentimental. But it is worth going through these items, to see if they can be decluttered or stored away somewhere safe. For me I attach memories to everything, as I only just donated a top that I haven’t worn in years. I was only holding onto it because it reminded me of a holiday to Fuerteventura from 2014…
There we have it, that Five Things to Declutter From Your Wardrobe! I hope this list helps you, if you struggle with knowing what to get rid of and what to keep.
