Your Ideal Closet Is Closer Than You Think

Your Ideal Closet Is Closer Than You Think

The benefits of a closet clear out include creating more space in your mind body and life along with an overall sense of lightness in your being.

You probably  already own enough stuff so in order to create your ideal closet you need to clear out what you no longer love or wear.

The unworn, unloved clothing that piles up year after year in our wardrobe gets in the way of our ideal closet.
 
By keeping the stuff - the clutter that piles us -  we get stuck in a holding pattern that is not only making our closets a storage space of all we can't let go, it is preventing our style and ourselves from evolving into the person we want to be.

As the holiday season approaches, our mindsets shift to gift giving, gift getting, sales, markdowns and all that revolves around material things. Now is a good time to get your clearing practice going to prevent a buildup of things you don't like or need.

I recommend closet clear outs, or a holistic closet cleanout seasonally. Every few months, roll up your sleeves and head into your wardrobe with the intention of removing everything that no longer serves.



Additionally, to complement your seasonal clear outs, I suggest doing it daily, in smaller doses, to keep the clutter from piling up. But in order to make clearing a daily practice, we must strengthen the muscle of letting go, otherwise we'll keep holding on.

To tackle this topic - which is a biggie - I have created a 3 part video series. The first video, below, talks about why you need to clear and why this is key to creating your ideal wardrobe. 

Next week I'll dive into one of the main reasons we hold on, and give tips on how let go of what no longer serves.

The following week I'll offer tips on using your closet clear out to remove what you don't wear.

    Good ideas. It’s like when I have the grandkids clean out the closet of toys they never use anymore. I try and have them do that every December.
