Summer Closet Cleanse

When I moved into my new apartment this summer, my closet space shrunk to nearly a third of what I had in the old place. What was I thinking??? Ya right, like all of my once-must-have wardrobe pieces could cram into this new closet that some man must have labeled a “walk-in closet”. (Let me tell you, not at all a walk-in…more like a stand-in-front-of closet with the doors open and boxes of shoes in any floor space that was once available.) I have tried time and again to purge my collection of all the things I really never touch, but like all collectors of the useless, I cannot seem to get rid of enough! The next week will be my official binge cleaning and I am determined to make some space for old and potential new belongings. So in preparation I am researching must-have pieces for fall and deciding on timeless pieces that I should keep. Some questions keep nagging the side of my brain that is sensible- How many pairs of shoes do I really need? Which ones are staples and which ones should I give away? Should I get rid of winter clothes before winter even arrives? I’m notorious for getting rid of clothes and regretting my decision…

How do you approach your closet cleansing? Tips, please?
