how to approach an overflowing closet

Caroline Smith

Are you constantly running out of hangers? Do your clothes fill your closet to the max?
It's time to assess that overflowing closet confidently.

Here are some questions to ask yourself:

  1. When was the last time i wore it?
  2. Does it have irreparable stains, holes and pulls? 
  3. Do I have several other almost identical items? 
  4. Does it fit me well? 
  5. Do I feel confident in this? 

These questions should help you distinguish between the clothes you should hold onto and the ones you can part with. 

If you need a little more direction, here is a fun infographic with thought provoking questions to help you make decisions about your clothing.
