Once a year it is a great idea to organize your clothing closet. Clothes tend to multiply no matter who you are. Whether you are that business guy who likes ties or can never have enough white button up shirts, or that woman who keeps sizes 1-16. We all need to de-clutter the closet.
The closet is one of the first things we see each day. How can you be productive at work if you can’t find a shirt that is clean or ironed to match your pants (that went out of style 9 years ago)?. How can you lead a balanced and intentional life of calm and serenity if you have 9 single flip flops ?
Just for today, go through every square inch of your closet and GET RID of all your stained, single, hopelessly outdated, or way tooooo small outfits and shoes. Grab a bunch of those giant black garbage bags and toss it all in. If you can’t decide, then part with it. Then immediately take those giant bags to goodwill or any donation drop off. Immediately. Do not ever look into that bag or think about what you got rid of.
Now you are ready for the new you! Stay tuned on how to organize what you have left.
