The Benefits Of Having A Minimal Wardrobe
Avoid the daily confusion & stress, and feel confidence each morning by creating a minimal wardrobe.
A minimal wardrobe can benefit you by:
1. Giving You More Time
You will cut down time spent on shopping, and time wasted on choosing which clothes to wear.
2. Saving You Money
Experience a little financial freedom by cutting down on unnecessary purchases. You’ll be left with extra money to put towards your bills or save up for your next grand vacation.
3. Increasing Your Happiness
Less clutter leads to more happiness. Wear clothes you like the most and feel the best in. If you feel and look great, it will show!
Get Started, Declutter Your Closet
Here are some tips to help you downsize your closet.
1. Set a Block of Time To Do It
Work it to your strengths. Think about your time availability over the next week. You might have 15 minutes each week day, and 1-2 hours over the weekend. Plan to declutter to these time constraints & be as productive as you can.
2. Sort It Out
Sort your clothes by type and choose only the best while you discard the rest. Keep the ones that make you feel great in every category; for example two items each for blouse, shorts, pants, jackets, skirts.
Discard any duplicates, keeping only the ones you love more.
4. Pick a Color
Choose one color palette that you like the most and keep the theme. This way you can pair and combine outfits you already have.
5. Oust Unwanted Accessories
Keep accessories that match your color palette and that are still on-trend.
6. Closet Logistics
Arrange your closet for easy choosing of clothes. For example, off-season coats and shoes should be packed away so current season clothing is easily accessible.
7. Donate Your Discarded Clothes
If they are still in good condition but not to your liking, then pass them on to goodwill. If they are tatty or need a lot of repairs then throw them straight into the trash.
8. Plan To Shop
Don’t shop on a whim, shop with purpose to help keep you focused.
