Quick declutter challenge week 6 – clothing

Reading time – 5 minutes 

The quick declutter challenge is on week 6.  The other challenges were to declutter cosmetics, bedrooms, livingroom dining room and office quickly.

It is said that we use 20% of things we own 80% of the time.  This leaves 80% of our stuff that we seldom use. For example, do you have a certain style of pens you like and don’t use the rest of the ones in your drawer? You receive lots of newsletters and only read 2 or 3 of them. Do eat the same thing for breakfast most days leaving cereals to go stale or fruit to rot?

Look at your closet, are there clothes you wear a lot?  Outfits you love?  Items that never seem to get selected? This time of year is good for decluttering your clothes.  The types of clothing you wear will be changing with temperature changes. As you reorganize your closet look at the 80% of your clothing you seldom wear and donate them.

Start with a quick declutter of your clothing.

Most times when you are decluttering clothes you find a lot of items in your closet that are not related to your wardrobe. If you have time and energy you can continue with your project organizing your closet so you can quickly find what you need.

If you need help with the quick declutter challenges book a virtual organizing session with me.
