A Sign It’s Time To Purge

September 17, 2015

After recently overhauling the jeans in my wardrobe and updating my fall/winter capsule, I began to think.

“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?
