Ever stared at your overflowing closet and felt like you have nothing to wear? We’ve all been there.
Don’t add items to your online shopping cart just yet. Most likely, this isn’t a sign that you need more clothes. It might just mean that you need to declutter!
So how do you know when it’s time to start cleaning out your closet?
1. You're always organizing your clothes.
When you have way too much stuff, things can get messy pretty quickly. If you find yourself having to constantly sort through your clothes, it’s a sign that you have more than you need.
2. Your closet contains too many unused pieces.
You may have a lot of clothes, but admit it—you never really use most of them. Only a few pieces ever make it to your wardrobe rotation. Time to make room for clothes you’ll actually want to wear!
3. You can't find anything.
Constantly rummaging through piles of unused clothes to find your favorite top or a go-to skirt? Declutter things that get in the way—it can save you a couple of precious minutes in the morning when you’re getting ready for the day.
4. You save clothes you think you "might need one day."
Neon-colored jeans might have been in vogue back in 2009, but the trend probably isn’t coming back anytime soon. Best to toss them in favor of clothes more in line with your personal style!
5. Your clothes are piling up outside your closet.
If your clothes have started taking up real estate on your vanity, bed, or even floor, you’ve accumulated too much stuff. Plus, a messy room can make you feel anxious and overwhelmed.
6. Your lifestyle habits have changed.
Did you just land a new job that requires more business wear? Or did you decide to go freelance and have no idea what to do with your blazers? Take this opportunity to start fresh with your wardrobe choices as well!
While these items may not spark joy for you anymore, others will still definitely appreciate them.
Decluttering is one way to stay productive while you're home. There are psychological benefits too, such as reduced stress and peace of mind. You can also earn some extra cash by selling your clothes online.
