Put on your favorite music – something energizing to help you get excited….and open the closet door to take it all in. The fun music will help keep you motivated and your spirits up when you feel like the job is just too much.
Pull absolutely everything out of your closet or dresser (or anywhere else you have clothes and shoes hidden away) and dump it all on the floor or on your bed. This will give you perspective of exactly what you’re dealing with and this way you can’t avoid a single piece.
Make a keep, donate (and/or sell) and trash pile and start going through each item one by one.
Get a friend to weigh in. Just not sure if you even should be wearing that dress anymore? Have a friend give you her honest opinion. If she says toss it – listen to her!
This same process goes for accessories too. Once you make it through clothes and shoes, dump all your costume jewelry, scarves, bags – you name it – onto the bed and follow the exact same process.
Remember – this will feel incredible once you are finished. And, the best part? Now you have room (and an excuse) to load up on all those fresh and new spring styles you’ve been coveting!
