I have always loved cleaning and organizing. When I was younger, I would completely re-do my closet and room just for fun. Total weirdo I know.
Now that I’m in an apartment and have less space, the space I do have is precious real estate. I try to go through my clothes once every 4-6 weeks to get rid of items, but today I really went for it. My mom was in town and I had her sit down while I showed her all my clothes. It’s always nice to have someone to run options by, and I’m so glad my momma was in town!
I’m not even joking when I say that I got rid of over half my closet. Even if it was an item I liked, if I’ve never worn it or haven’t worn it in the past 6 months, I tossed it. It felt so good to donate that many items to Goodwill!
I also bought new hangers, which takes up less than half the space of the ones I had before. Plus they’re felt/velvety so my off the shoulder pieces and sweaters fit much better on these hangers.
It seems silly, but after getting rid of that many clothes I feel like a new person! I feel invincible, ready to take on the world!
Also: I would much rather give back and donate my clothes to Goodwill than try to sell them or have a clothing swap with friends. Just my personal opinion.
