If your closet or drawers are so packed with clothes it’s hard to get anything in or out, the underlying problem could be you don’t want to get rid of anything. Or you love to buy new things. Or both. And it’s possible you don’t have enough space – but you’ll only know that after you pare down some of what you have.
Here’s a cool exercise to help you purge, inspired by the book One Thing at a Time by Cindy Glovinsky.
Set your phone or a timer for 10 minutes and do a deep contemplation about the image you’d like to put forward with how you dress. When the timer goes off, jot down ideas about your ideal:
- PJs or nightgown
- Work clothes
- Play clothes
- Formal wear
- Solids or prints
- Skirt or pant styles and lengths
