Alright, this is the last one. Now that your closet is all nice and organized, clean and slimmed down it's time to prepare for the upkeep. This is easy, trust me. Once a month just briefly go through your closet and get rid of anything you've decided you don't like, doesn't fit, or got ripped or stained. I find myself doing this a lot. When I'm searching for an outfit sometimes ill come across something and say "I never wear you" or " you got with nothing." So it gets put into storage for donation/selling. Once the pile gets big enough I bring it to Plato's/Salvation Army.
If you haven't started The Closet Cure yet, it's never too late! Check out Apartment Therapy to sign up, or read all the assignments and do it on your own time.
this is not my closet, I just wish it was.
Overall, I greatly enjoyed this process. It's nice to have guidelines and goals to meet. For some (me) it can be hard to get rid of clothing (sad for the outfits that could have been), but this program made it much more easier and less overwhelming. I feel good now with a smaller (still big) wardrobe and a bunch of pieces I KNOW I will wear. Plus I made room for more! And I did go shopping on my birthday weekend and got a lot of new items that appeal to my ever changing style.
