When cleaning out your closet, it can be difficult to decide which items to keep and which to throw or give away. If you just aren’t sure what to do, ask yourself two questions (if you can answer all three questions, the item is worth keeping):
- When am I going to wear this item again?
- Where I am going to wear it? Can you wear it to work, on the weekends, or special occasions.
- What am I going to wear with with? Make sure the item you are planning to keep matches other items you already have in your wardrobe.
If you have an emotional attachment to the item, or you just aren’t sure what to do, put it in a separate pile (see Tips for Cleaning Out your Closet).
