5 Tips On When Is It Time To Throw Your Clothes Away

time to throw clothes away

The first step to a peaceful mind and de-stressing is to make sure that your environment is in order.When your house is a mess it can affect your mood negatively and make your personal space seem like a place you want to escape from, rather than something to look forward to coming home to. Organize you closet one day every month to make sure that you don’t have clutter building up.

#1- Don’t keep ill-fitting clothes.
You will never be a better dresser if you wear clothes that don’t fit correctly.If something doesn’t fit, then it never looks good, no matter how hot you think the item looks on the rack.

#2-Only keep clothes that make you look and feel great.
Why settle for anything less?

#3- You should only keep clothes that suit your body type.
Whatever your shape and size, not every item of clothing is going to suit you. This applies to everyone from wafer thin models to individuals of far more generous proportions.

#4 – Declutter your wardrobe.
You might need a couple of hours. Or a few, if your closet is huge. Set aside an evening, if you have time in the evenings, or half a weekend day. Get boxes ready. You might need half a dozen or more, depending on how much junk you have.

#5 – Only keep clothes that are still in a good condition.
If your clothes look old, worn or  damaged, then it’s time to say goodbye. If your sweaters have necklines that are stretched or sleeves that are pilled or your bras and underwear are totally shapeless, it’s time to get new ones.

    I was saying this to my friend the other day that my house, when in a mess, makes me lazy. I just decluttered our wardrobes recently, getting rid of 7 big black bags of clothes! Ive stored my winter clothes under my bed now so I have more room in my wardrobe

    I admit, I’m a clothing hoarder. I still have items in my closet that I bought back in middle school…I’m now about to turn 23. It’s a problem. Last summer I got rid of pretty much all my summer clothing and replaced it and it felt amazing! This year, I’m focusing on getting rid of pants and shorts that don’t fit and replacing them too.

    I tend to wear a lot of my dresses only once so I sell them on ebay to make money to buy another dress. Works pretty well.
