30 items of clothing, 8 pairs of shoes, 2 bags
This post is a rare insight into my decluttering process. I often don’t have the patience to keep things I’m getting rid of just for the purpose of a video or blog post. I have not been wearing some of these items for a long time, so their removal from my life is well overdue.
This is the process I have found easiest for decluttering any area of my home.
- Work in categories.
- Place all items in a category somewhere visible.
- Examine each item, and place it in one of three piles: ‘keep’, ‘discard’, ‘maybe’.
- Return ‘keep’ items to their home, sell or donate ‘discard’ items, and place ‘maybe’ items in storage.
These are the items I have removed from my wardrobe.
I’ve realised I do not enjoy wearing structured shirts at all. I find them uncomfortable. The preppy look is not for me. I enjoy flowing layers much more, and have enough of these now to warrant me getting rid of those shirts.
I cannot wear tight pants anymore. I simply do not feel comfortable. Earlier in the year I purchased some pants with relaxed silhouettes and it’s time to say goodbye to the figure hugging type.
I love this 90’s kimono, but it is too large on me. In addition, it does not offer a lot of warmth for the cooler months. While I’ve had it for years, it is time to acknowledge it rarely gets worn.
