I am minimalist that loves collecting things and has a difficult time passing up a bargain. This means that I constantly do a lot of editing around my house in order to clean out the clutter. I am trying to prevent this problem by only purchasing things I absolutely love or desperately need in the first place, but until I develop some better habits, I’ll keep having my annual garage sale.

This past weekend I got the bug to go through my closet and purge. Even though I do this every season, I was a lot more aggressive this time. Many items don’t fit, are too short, have stains or just aren’t my style anymore. It feels so good to get them out of the closet and I’m looking forward to donating/selling them. If you’re interested in doing the same, I put together a little infographic decision tree to help you along in the process. This is a great place to start, getting you to ask the right questions about your clothing. I honestly believe that the less you have, the more likely you’re going to appreciate and love what you do. It’s also much less stressful getting dressed in the morning when you have less to choose from.

Let me know if you decide to edit your wardrobe. Tweet me a picture if you’re not sure whether you should keep something or not!
