A Little Goes A Long Way
It might be a good idea for those who seem to have an endless amount of clothing to keep a hamper dedicated to donating. This way, you can conveniently add clothing items as you see fit. Once the hamper is full take it to your local Goodwill. Who knew cleaning your closet could make such a positive impact.
New Season = New Chances
Use the changing of seasons as a chance to reorganize your closet. If you're going from Summer to Fall, try gathering all of your lighter clothing garments, including shorts, tank tops, sundresses, and bathing suits, into an air-sealed storage bag. From there, all you would need to do is compress the bag by removing the air with a vacuum and store in a safe place until it gets warm again.
Plus One / Minus One
Prevent your closet from overfilling by practicing the "plus one / minus one" method. For every new clothing article you purchase and add to your collection, remove an older clothing item, and set it aside to donate.
If It Doesn’t Fit, You Can’t Wear It
We all have that one pair of jeans we are working towards being able to fit again. While some could say this helps them with motivation, I advise against it. Keeping these items around takes up unnecessary space in your closet. Replacing that ill-fitting pair of jeans with some new workout bottoms could be a more practical way of reaching your goal.
