A Must Remove Things From Your Closet

As busy, fashion-loving ladies, we’re all occasionally guilty of amassing a huge pile of clothes on the floor or stuffed into a drawer. Hey, it happens to the best of us. Still, a clear closet is a clear mind (not to mention that decluttering makes it way easier to find what you need in the morning and get out the door more quickly). Part of the problem is the accumulation of junk: the stuff you should be tossing but haven’t because you’re too busy or a touch sentimental. We’re here to help with a loving, we’re-all-in-this-together mentality, fresh with a handy list of things you can toss (or resell or donate) right now. Print it out and get busy this weekend and we guarantee that getting dressed on Monday morning will be that much easier.


Things you can toss from your closet:


  1. Broken and/or wire hangers
    1. Anything damaged beyond repair (we’re talking holes, stained pieces, and yes, even bras that have the wires popping out)
    2. The small boxes jewelry comes in
    3. Empty shoe boxes
    4. Spare buttons and/or the plastic bags they came in
      1. Broken jewelry
      2. Extra straps provided with bras
      3. T-shirts with underarm stains
      4. Single socks, solo earrings, anything that’s mate-less
      5. Shoes too beat up to see another day (e.g., there are holes)
      6. Too-tight anything
      7. Snap-on hoods or zippered extras that go with pieces you no longer own
      8. Broken sunglasses
      9. Shoes that ache the minute you put them on.
      10. Anything you’re holding onto solely because you feel guilty not to (i.e., it was a gift)
      11. Yoga pants that have totally lost their shape and stretch
