WHY clean out your closet? Anything in your home can be made more efficient and work to your advantage.
Your wardrobe can do just that, with the added bonuses of self-expression, confidence and feeling your absolute best. We talked about emotions and clothes, and leaving this area until last when you declutter - this will give you ample time to "perfect" your process and figure out what works for you in other aspects of your home, so you can head into the closet with determination and the know-how to make your wardrobe really WORK for you. When you step into the closet, think about how to your use your wardrobe as a tool to help you be your best self. As I’ve mentioned before, it’s all about progress over perfection - so don’t take it too seriously, either!
