Quick Tip: Closet Control

I always say shopping is cheaper than a psychiatrist. –Tammy Faye Bakker

Most of us women have a weakness for clothing.  Shopping can be therapeutic, but if we aren’t careful all that therapy can create more stress with an overwhelmed closet, giving us more reason perhaps for some alternative therapy.

There are a few ways to avoid this closet dilemma;

  • A couple times a year (perhaps at the beginning of summer and winter)  go through your closet and get rid of anything that you haven’t worn over the past year, either because it is outdated, doesn’t fit well or has been worn out.  If you haven’t worn it for a year, you  probably will never wear it again and might as well let someone else benefit from it.
  • If you already have pretty good control of your closet and prefer to do small purges; for every new item you add to your wardrobe, get rid of a similar item that you no longer use.
  • For the fashion diva’s that just absolutely need all your clothes; keep your out of season clothing put away in storage, and change it out as the weather changes.

When you keep a grip on your wardrobe, you’ll find that your clothing is better utilized.  And we all know that when we look good, we feel good, helping us save a little dough in therapy costs:)
