We have our home on the market to sell, and one of the things I needed to do was clean out our closet. I have a hard time parting with clothing, and my closet shows that. I knew that this was a good time to do a significant closet overhaul. When I put my mind to it, it was really quite a simple task, and I know going forward in the future I’m going to be a little more circumspect with what I purchase by the way of clothing too.

The first thing I did was purge it. I got rid of what I didn’t need or don’t really wear. I also got rid of things that I have no idea why the items were even in my closet.

I read a statistic that you only wear 20 percent of your clothes 80 percent of the time! That got me really looking hard at taking inventory of what I do and don’t wear. I got rid of what didn’t fit, what didn’t seem to match with anything or was out of style, items that I cannot remember for the life of me when the last time I wore them was, and clothes that needed mending that I had not bothered to (so obviously I wasn’t going to be wearing them any time soon!).

A while ago I found a great deal on some of those very thin flocked hangers. I had used some of them, but the majority of them were still in the package. Well now every single one of them is in use, because I threw out the old plastic hangers from the discount store and now my closet is configured nicely.

I’m going to try to concentrate on ‘shopping for ideas’ online. I’m planning to check out high end stores like for classic looks that won’t plump up my closet. Picking out polished solid colored pants and tops, in white, black and red, will give me a starter base to my wardrobe and let me add a few fun pieces to the mix that I can replace with the seasons.

And that goes for shoes too (which I haven’t yet conquered the clutter on!). I found these Rick Owens Wedge Boots that I’d love to have, and they’d go with so many outfits that spending money on a quality pair could be justified.

I can’t decide whether it’s a good or bad thing they’re sold out on them!

So tell me are you a minimalist quality clothing shopper or a discount quantity clothes shopper?
