Recently while doing laundry and cleaning my room I learned two things; the first being if I try to put anything else in my closet the rod would break, and the second being I’m a bit of a hoarder. After sharing how to become a better you in my last post 3 Ways to Succeed at New Year, New Me, I definitely had to get my own life together! With the number of goals, I’ve set for this year having a clutter-free living space is a perfect start to achieving them. In the next few weeks, I’ll be sharing my journey to minimalism and how I’ll transform my living space along with my wardrobe.
Less is More
After the whole laundry incident, it was time to detox my closet and donate. For my first donation, I had about 4 bags and still have quite a few items I’ll be getting rid of. It’s definitely insane to see how much articles of clothing I had/still have! Here are some organizations that accept donations, however with a little Googling you can definitely find more within your area.
Veterans VA Pickup *This one is in 13 states
Salvation Army *Nationwide
With all this new found space, I’ll be transitioning to & creating a capsule wardrobe. This allows you to focus on a number of versatile pieces you love so it helps give you more time, space, and money for things that really matter. Most people use the fashion challenge Project 333 which focuses on utilizing 33 pieces or less for 3 months (learn more about it here) to create a variety of looks. I’ll be aiming for 37 pieces on my journey, so stay tuned as I complete my closet detox.
