Seven Days of Organizing TIPS – Day # 3

Overhaul your wardrobe

DAY # 3 – TIP # 3

Overhaul Your Wardrobe

It’s spring clearing, and it’s time to let go of the clothing that you haven’t worn in a year or more.

Pull out items from your closet (clothing, shoes, accessories) that you haven’t worn all year, and that don’t fit, or don’t love. Throw damaged stuff out, or give to a charity for use as rags if appropriate. Give decent clothing also to a local charity, or arrange a clothing swap with friends. Once a year, my housemate and I coordinate a Women’s Afternoon Tea and Clothing Swap. We invite our friends, and friends of friends to attend and bring items they no longer wear to trade with others.

It’s fun! We talk over tea, try on lots of clothing, and leave with a free new wardrobe; having let go of lots of our own older clothing! Whatever clothing is left over at the end of the swap, (and there is a lot left!) we donate to a local women’s charity. You can choose any charity that appeals to you.

I’d love to hear about the clothing you’ve let go of, or if you are going to coordinate a clothing swap!
