Do you often feel overwhelmed by the mountain of clothes in your wardrobe? Are you guilty of having items with their tags still on months after purchase? You might be suffering from an overabundance of attire! Here’s a guide to understanding the six telltale signs that your closet is bursting at the seams and it’s time for a change.
You Have Clothes You Only Ever Wore Once
Another indication that you have too many clothes is if you’re holding onto items that you’ve only worn once. You can probably let them go if you constantly push them aside in favour of other things on a daily basis. It might be hard to let them go, especially if you didn’t buy them cheap, but think about giving them to people who will treasure them just as much as you would.
You’re Holding On To Unfitting Clothes
It is a fact that many of us hold onto items that don’t fit in the hopes that they will eventually fit. In due course. Maybe one day! But here’s the thing: It might be time to accept how your body has changed if you still need to start that diet, exercise programme, or whatever else it will take to fit back into those clothes. Give up the clothes and embrace your new size to live your best life.
Dressing Up Is A Stressful Process
Wearing the same outfits repeatedly is one of the easiest ways to tell if you have too many clothes. Your lack of options in your closet is less of a factor in this. Quite the reverse—there are too many options, which makes dressing up stressful. Instead of wasting valuable closet space, why not organise some of your clothes and mix and match them in ways you would like to wear them?
You Own Clothing That Still Has Tags Attached
Many of us are guilty of having clothing in our closets that still has tags on it. Having a few clothes with their tags still on is not unusual. Nonetheless, an excessive amount of these things is a fairly obvious sign of a cluttered wardrobe. This is particularly true if you discover that you purchase new clothing more frequently than you wear it. This is not only a financial waste but may also make you feel ashamed. Yes, letting go of things like this can hurt a little. You almost feel as though you’re confessing your own failure to yourself. Plus, the money you have parted with to think of can hurt!
You Have Clothes You Never Wear
You might adore them, and occasionally, you might even put them on to take a good look at yourself in the mirror, but there are some clothes you never really wear. It’s simple: they most likely don’t fit your way of life, and if you have those clothes in your wardrobe, it’s time to give them up. If you have workwear you no longer need, consider giving them out. Alternatively, you could try your hand at the pre-owned store, which is a great way to recoup some of the money you spent.
Your Clothing Are In Poor Shape
Tears, rips, stains, scuffed leather, and broken zippers. It might be time to let go of those clothes you’ve been holding onto that have seen better days. Determine whether the item can be fixed, and if it can, whether you’re willing to invest the necessary funds or time to do so. If not, either recycle them or throw them all away.
