Most people wear twenty percent of their clothes eighty percent of the time.
It would be unrealistic to get rid of that unused majority all at once. Instead, clean out your closet progressively. Start at one end. Look at each garment and assign it to one of three categories:
1. Keep. The keep items that should stay in your closet are those that you wear often. You may find special occasion and sentimentally significant items that you want to hold onto. Identify a separate storage space for these so your closet isn't so full.
2. Needs work. Have two boxes on hand to collect items that need repair/alterations or cleaning. If this work must be done professionally, take the full boxes to your car and make trips to the tailor Landry cleaner. Otherwise, distribute the contents to the appropriate places in your house, such as your sewing room or laundry center.
3.Eliminate. Don't like it? Doesn't fit?Haven't worn it in the last two years? Donate articles in good condition to charity, consign them or put into a garage sale. Toss out the others. There's no sense in keeping something you're not drawn to.
Once you've made a first pass through the entire closet, repeat the process a week later. See if you can identify some additional discards. Most people and they are willing to pare down further.
