The Yes Pile
Start with any items that definitely meet all of your criteria, these will be items you absolutely love and wear frequently. Ensure you’re being completely honest with yourself when it comes to the definition of the words love and frequent! Make sure each item is a definite yes to all of the questions above to make sure you’re on the right track.
The No Pile
Next tackle the definite no’s which we all tend to have hanging around. These will be items you’ve been meaning to clear out, ones that are beyond repair or don’t fit your personal style or body shape. Put these aside to come back to later.
The Maybe Pile
With everything else it’s time to try on…and time to be really honest with yourself. Make sure you’re referring back to the questions to guide your decision as to which pile each item will end up in, and did I mention be honest! Each item should be added to your current yes or no piles or placed in a new alterations needed pile.
If you’re really having trouble choosing a pile for any items then store them away for now and come back to them in a few months time. You’ll either have gone hunting for it in the meantime, be happy to see it again in a fresh light or realise you didn’t need it after all!
Stay tuned next week for tips on the best ways to approach each pile after your wardrobe review is complete!
