“When do you know it is time to purge clothes?”
What a great question! I’ve used a variety of methods to tell myself when to purge:
But my favorite one is also an easy one.
When I stop taking care of my clothes.
I’ve noticed a cycle with my clothing. New purchases are often treated with kid gloves. I am very diligent about the care instructions. But over time, my due diligence wanes. And sooner or later, I’m rather rough on my clothing.
When I stop taking care of my clothes I’m ready to let go of the item.
Do you have a favorite way to spot items ready to be purged?
