I read today in a Bib & Tuck email that the average woman owns 120 articles of clothing and only wears 20%. I have heard something similar to this before. And as I have been thinking about cleaning out my closet and reorganizing this little statistic should have ideally given me a bit of a nudge. But so much of what I have in my closet – the bold bright colors, the crazy print, the vintage Chanelesque skirt suit – I really like. Some of it I haven’t worn in the “6mos to 1 year” time span that we are supposed to use to clean out our closets, but does that really mean I should get rid of it? I don’t know.
I did watch another blogger’s closet cleaning method, and what she does to help is to put items on lend to her sisters, cousins, friends. I thought what a great idea – so unbeknownst to my sister, she will be getting the blue and brown leather colorblock Haley Coach bag in the mail any day now. Sure, that is only one item, but hey as they say, the journey of 1,000 miles begins with one step.
More on the Spring Cling or Clean later.
