In this series of posts, I am working through 12 steps I created to help refresh my wardrobe for fall. If you would like to follow join me in the challenge, you can find all the steps here.
Closet organizing time! This is not always fun, but it’s essential to know what you are currently working with. If you live in an area that cools down in the fall, it’s a good time to put away those summer items. Schedule a donation pick up from a local charity organization so you have a deadline to sort your clothes.
This is not my idea of a good time. I’m not an overly sentimental person, but it is always hard to part with clothes. I have items that haven’t fit me in years, but I keep them because they were expensive or have good memories attached.
The reality is that hoarding clothes is not helping me. There is no reason to keep clothing that fits poorly. It’s uncomfortable to wear and when you are uncomfortable it’s hard to go about your day looking confident and stylish. It’s time to get rid of all my non-fitting clothes.
I’m also getting rid of my sentimental items and my expensive non-fitting items. If they have monetary value; I’ll sell them online or consign them. Photographing the items can preserve the memories. By selling off these garments, I can raise money for new clothes! Hooray!
Here is a pile of clothing I’m going to sell…
As I organized my clothing, I took pictures of all the items I plan on keeping. This will serve as a visual catalogue. I plan to share those photos in my next post for step 3 of this challenge. In the meantime, here is a picture of my newly organized closet.
