It's dark in this closet...

"The most important thing to remember is that you can wear all the greatest clothes and all the greatest shoes, but you’ve got to have a good spirit on the inside. That’s what’s really going to make you look like you’re ready to rock the world."
— Alicia Keys
Why do we keep the clothes we never wear?
Every article of clothing has monetary value, and damn straight~ we expect to get our money's worth!  Our wardrobe is an investment.  By discarding articles of clothing we may perceive it as a loss of economic value, declaring it worthless, a mistake, or a compulsive shopping purchase.  (Gasp!)... and the classic  "Well, I  just might need to wear this... someday."

When I googled 'how much do we actually wear?'  Some studies showed that most women only wear 20 to 30% of their entire wardrobe 80 percent of the time.

By streamlining our wardrobe, we save both time & stress getting dressed.  We have more disposable income in that we become selective (think quality vs. quantity & classic basics).  Your closet space becomes uncluttered and organized.  And laundry may not lessen, but it might become easier.

So go ahead.  Tackle that closet with gusto.  Shine some light on your wardrobe and lighten your load.  And if you need someone to hold your hand, call me...  I'll bring some wine.
