Fashion Advice for Moms – Day #53

We all need a good closet clean-out once in a while! I try and get rid of things every 6 months or so… organization and de-cluttering is a GOOD FEELING.

Fashion advice for the day? Go through your closets for the next 7 days and get rid of 1 thing a day. Just 1 item. Donate the items. Recycle the items with a friend or family member. Sell them on eBay. Bring them to a consignment shop. You’ve got options!

Here’s how you can decide if it’s time to say GOOD-BYE to an item… Ask yourself these questions if you’re having trouble deciding what to cut-loose:

1.) Have you worn it within the last 6-12 months. Can you remember wearing it?

2.) Do you have many of the same type of item? For example – if you have 10 black sweaters, time to say good-bye to one of them! 😉

3.) Does the item hold an sentimental value for you? Did you wear it on your first date? From your kids? From your mother?

    Great tips! I’ve got to do LOTS of de-cluttering since we need to make room for Little One’s baby things! For a person so little, she sure has a lot of “stuff”!! LOL!

    Hubby and I had some clothes of ours in her room. We’ve got to get rid of some now. You are so right about all those tips. If I haven’t worn something in ages and it’s just been hanging out in the closet, I probably don’t need it.

    *sigh* All the more reason to go shopping for new items? LOL! Kidding!

    Great ideas. I cleared out half my closet a couple of weeks ago and it felt so good! Now, I am trying to update with quality pieces that are versatile.

    Have a great night!
