When downsizing, people are surprised to realize just how many clothes they have crammed into various closets and drawers.
When it’s time to move, you must be merciless.
Our bodies change as we age, things don’t fit the same way or become dated, or you’ve lost or gained weight. Wearing clothes that no longer suit you isn’t flattering. Don’t wear it? Don’t spare it!
- Do one cupboard, or one dresser, at a time.
- Put the clothes you decide not to keep in donation bags and remove them from the house that same day. Otherwise, you may be tempted to pull out items that should not be rescued.
