I have recently talked about 'Minimalism & My Closet'. This is a topic I am absolutely passionate about. However, as much as I love the idea of a capsule wardrobe, I am not sure that it would actually work for me. But we all have certain categories of items in our closet, that we could and should get rid of right now.

It doesn't fit (anymore). 
I guess we all have at least one item in our closet that just doesn't fit. And yet, we hold onto it. Why? Well, we either hope to fit into it one day, or we used to love it and it just doesn't fit anymore. Either way, it is time to get rid of it!

The price tag is still on. 
I am guilty of this. But sometimes I am even glad that I leave the tags on until I actually wear the item. This way, when I go through my closet and I see a dress with a tag that I bought last year, I know I haven't worn it and I probably never will. So again, get rid of it!

It's completely uncomfortable. 
This one is a hard one. I used to have quite a few items in my closet that looked beautiful, fit like a glove but I just don't reach for them. Why? Because they feel awful when I wear them. Be it shoes that rub or a sweater that itches, life is too short for uncomfortable clothes. Toss them! (and by that I mean to sell or donate, please don't actually toss it.)

For a red carpet event. 
I often preach that when you see a dress you love, buy it just in case you need it. And while most of the time you will end up needing a cute dress for a wedding or a work event, you probably won't need an outfit that can only be worn to the Oscars. Unless you are Angelina Jolie or Scarlett Johansson and if you are, hey girl.. hold onto your sparkly floor length gown. Otherwise, it's time to go. 

For the memories. 
This is probably the hardest category. The memory items. Okay, please don't just get rid of your wedding dress or your childs first little outfit. But definitely go through those 'memory items' and think about if you really, really want to hold onto them. And if you do, store them away safely. There is no need for them to take up space in your wardrobe. 

Happy declutter!
