Jeans and a t-top graphicFor someone who’s very obsessive about organizing I found it extremely difficult to take the time to go through my closet to get rid of clothing I knew I hadn’t worn in years. Maybe even decades.  Some of those garments have an emotional attachment, some still had tags on them.

My closet was packed to the point I could hardly get anything in or out. I was forced to devise a way to purge it. Read on and see if my system works for you. If it doesn’t sound like it will be sure to check out the tips I collected from family and friends at the end.

Since I’m a sentimental type I do allow clothing that evokes special memories a pass, no matter how long it’s been since it’s been worn. They can be placed in a memory box or if you have the space after purging you can leave them hung in your closet.

I found it best to dress in a basic pair of jeans and a T-top so you can concentrate on the garments you are trying on and not what else you are wearing.
