Susan here with a fun look at a surprising benefit of cleaning out your closet. This post is sponsored, but my ideas and opinions are always my own.
I’m fed up with 2 major areas in my life: my weight and my overflowing but uninspiring closets.
So I’ve decided to tackle both at the same time…
Here’s My Plan… Will You Join Me?
- Take out ALL the clothes from your closet.
- Vacuum and get rid of all the dust that’s built up since you first moved in.
- Try on EACH item of clothing that you don’t wear regularly.
- For each item, ask yourself the following questions…
- Do you wear it regularly?
- Is it in style?
- Does it fit? Is it only one size too small? If so, wash and hang it in your GOAL clothes.
- Do you love it?
Based on your answers, create a pile of clothes to keep and a pile of clothes to donate.
- Wash and hang or fold and sort into three categories…
- Current Season
- Out of Season
- Goal Clothes
- Every week, take out and try on one item from your GOAL clothes to measure your progress and inspire yourself to keep exercising and watching what you eat.
A Fun Flowchart to Help
Be realistic as you work through your closet and ask yourself these questions.
Take a Load Off
Wash all the dust off those favorite clothes that have been stuck in the back of your closet but you’ve decided to keep, and get them freshened up with OxiClean.
