Doing a wardrobe cull is a task that fills many of us with dread. But do it right and you’ll find putting together your outfit each morning to be a much more streamlined and stress-free event.
Prepare for your purge
Give yourself at least four hours to dedicate to your closet reorg. Label three heavy-duty garbage bags “donate,” “tailor,” and “consignment.” Pull on nude, seamless undergarments and get ready to try on some clothes. Optional: your best friend and a bottle of wine.
Start with a sweep
Begin on one end of your closet and pull out everything you know with certainty you don’t want. If you have to think about something for more than 10 seconds, move on and deal with it later, advises Cyndy Aldred on her blog the Creativity Exchange.
