3 Tips For A Spring Clothing Purge

I saw this on Keri Lynn's blog and knew I had to participate when I could. I did my pantry, but not in time to post for this challenge. But if you want to see that, click here.

| Tip 1 |

Try to take away the sentimental value of your clothes. I know it's hard, but how many things in your closet do you still have that you say, I wore this when I did this...or I had this when I turned this age. It's hard, but just do it! You'll feel so much better, and in all reality, you probably have a picture of yourself in that piece of clothing.

| Tip 2 |

If you haven't worn it in 6 months get rid of it, you're not going to wear it. You already know which clothes you consistantly pass over when trying to pick out an outfit. Do yourself a favor and just get rid of it. I got rid of something I've worn twice, it's super cute, but I don't EVER reach for it because I feel like I'm choking when I wear it. I wore it once to work, and actually had to leave work to go buy another shirt because I felt like I was going to suffocate (I"m weird like that I know).

| Tip 3 |

If you think you're going to fit into it at some point...just get rid of it. If you do ever get to that size again...just get something new. There is no need to have something in your closet constinatly reminding you of what you use to be 5 years ago. You are who you are now, embrace it. Don't let your clothes make you feel bad for who you are now. I don't need that negativity in my life, and either do you! So just get rid of it! Then you won't have to see it and be constantly reminded of what used to be.

I try to organize using all of these tips to get rid of things. I don't wear a few times a year, so I thought this would be the perfect time. I forgot to take before pictures. But here are some after pictures.

The bag in the back is our dry cleaning bag. Where do you all keep your dry cleaning bag? If you want a closet tour, I did one here, I haven't changed much except that we added shelves.

Something to note: because of where I live, we don't really have seasons, so I don't need to have different wardrobes. So everything I own is always out. I organize it, tank tops, t-shirts, long sleeves, and then sweaters.

I love that Mr. wanted to participate too. Mostly because he bought a bunch of new t-shirts and I told him he needed to clean out his closet or buy more hangers...he chose to clean out the closet, haha.  Here is everything that we donated from this round.

Of course I put a video together for you.
