The Clear-Out:

  1. Sort through every piece in your closet and separate them into 3 piles:
    1. Keeper: Anything frequently worn and non-damaged.
    2. To Be Fixed: Anything damaged (stains, rips etc.) that you love enough to get repaired.
    3. Get Rid Of: Anything outdated, damaged beyond repair or not worth fixing, ill-fitting, or has not been worn over the past year.
    4. Unsure: Anything that you are not sure about put into this pile and set aside to try on a few more times, and try out paired with different items or saved for a later season’s wardrobe. 7c013980c9cf715e10ef8e8bf8c3184b
