We are entering the spring season in my area, which means lots of cool, rain filled days. Our winter season was unusually warm this past season. While the warmer weather was a welcome change from our rather cold winters these past few years, it also meant that I rarely had the opportunity to sport my heaviest and warmest sweaters/jumpers. With so few days allowing me to sport my cold weather things, it begs the question, what do I do, with all the leftovers?
Normally, unworn items I am tempted to purge at the end of the season. But our winter was warm, and this unusual weather affected what I wore (or didn’t wear really). Should I still purge my clothes? Well, I could, but that’s probably not the best choice. After all, what if next winter, it’s back to the standard cold again?
I’m going to give my current sweater/jumper collection one more season before I start to purge anything from lack of use. After two years, if something goes unworn, I think it’s fair to let the item go.
Has the weather ever affected your desire to purge your wardrobe?
