February Is The New January
So I decided to use January to get my life in check, I felt like I needed to get all of the annoying job's and aspects of my life in order before looking ahead at what 2018 may hold. I suppose you could say I am aiming to start as I mean to go on.
- When did I last wear it? If you haven’t worn it in the last year, you probably won’t wear it again.
- Does this work for my current lifestyle? No point in having 5 festival outfit's if the last festival you visited was five years ago. ( A personal battle I had to face when sorting my wardrobe out - What looked great at V Festival 2013 would not look great at Newmarket night's 2018 )
- Does it suit my current style? Our style evolves with us and changes as we grow does this item fit your style today or have you moved on?
- Does it fit? Only keep things that fit you now, no point in saving things just in case you lose weight. Chances are you will want new clothes if you do
- Does it suit me? Does this item work for your current shape and figure? Do you feel confident and look good in it?
- Is it in good condition? Nobody need's to wear bobbley jumpers or faded black jeans or white t-shirts that are no longer white.
- Would I buy this now? If you saw this online or in store today would you buy it?
- Do I love it? Ultimately if you still love it then you need to keep it don't throw anything away that you love as you never know it may come back in style and then you will wish you kept it, but keep this to a minimum otherwise you would keep every item of clothing that you had a great time in.
KEEP, CHARITY, BIN, SELL
I have two final tips.
John Lewis has a fantastic selection of Vacuum storage but you can get cheaper versions from ebay.
