Do you normally spring clean? Meaning to clean the house from top to bottom? I did this weekend. It took about 3 days or so but after getting rid of all the junk, I feel so much lighter and happier.
Technically it’s still winter but our place was getting too cluttered. I found myself cleaning and sprucing up the same area over and over again. When that happens, I know it’s probably time to get rid of some things. I know it’s a bit early for that but I couldn’t help myself. It needed to be done!
With that in mind, i also decided to tackle my closet and got rid of a lot of things I don’t even wear. In my opinion, if it’s not going to be worn, why keep it. In many ways, I realize that I’m going towards a minimalist mindset- Out with the junk, in with the essentials.
Eventually moved over to the medicine cabinet, under the cabinets, the garage, etc. and after doing all that I feel so..much..better. a bit light if I must say so.
Ray and Jen came up with a genius idea of deciding which items to keep in a wardrobe and which items to toss within a 6 months period.
Some things I know I’ll never wear so I don’t even bother with them. Then there are those things I keep hanging onto knowing that i can’t fit anymore because it’s so “pretty”. Yep! I’ve learned to let go of those things also. Either they get sold or go to Goodwill. Might as well let someone else get use out of it.
Within editing my wardrobe, there’s something I’ve noticed. Many of the colors that I own are neutralized, blacks, pinks, soft whites, blues, etc. Perhaps psychologically these colors remind me of the beach and they make me feel light and happy. Whatever the case, I feel more calm now that I have a decluttered space to think and be creative.
What do you do to clean up your abode? Are you a minimalist when it come to wardrobe editing or do you just cram it all in there?
