I have been in a declutter mood lately, getting rid of anything I have no use for or that take up space in my not so spacious room. Last week I had another decluttering party (by myself!) where I tackled my closet space. I knew that all the clothing that was in my current capsule wardrobe was safe to stay but I had a lot other pieces that have not seen the light of day in a few seasons. When going through my clothing I had to figure out what I love and what I don't.
To start the cleaning process, I pulled out all of the items that I A) have not worn in a really long time, B) Do not like the way they fit, or C) I do not feel like I love the item on me. Once these items were thrown onto my bed in an extremely horrendous pile I sorted through them making one section for things I was for sure not keeping and things that I needed to try on again.
To be honest, 90% of the items were given away to a new home that would give them more love. I only kept things that I liked the fit of and that made me feel good about myself while wearing them. My closet feels half the size of what it used to be but I feel like I know everything in there is something I could wear and feel comfortable in.
Looking back on the process of decluttering I felt very accomplished and pleased about the items I decided to keep. I now have more space in my closet for new things that would complement the current items in my wardrobe. I am looking forward to decluttering my dresser drawers as well as the bins under my bed of seasonal items, but thats for another time.
