Since discovering minimalism, I’ve been finding ways to incorporate it into my life. I used to think that I didn’t own a lot of “stuff”, however, I’ve since realized that’s not true.
Something I’ve always wanted to change is my wardrobe. I began to realize that 75% of my wardrobe has gone unworn in the past few years; some items hadn’t even had the tag removed!
This past weekend I decided that it was time to change. There are many people who need those articles of clothing more than my closet. So, my wife and I purged our closets; we removed every item that we hadn’t worn for awhile, and the ol’, “I might wear this one day” line wasn’t acceptable.
Now my closet looks fresh, and tidy, with only the items of clothing that I actually wear. Next time I buy clothing, I’m going to make sure that I need it, and that I’m going to wear it often.
How does your closet look? Have you been wanting to purge old clothing for awhile, but have always put it off? There is no better time than today to start. Have a packing party, and make it fun!
