Even though I generally prefer to wear lighter colored outfits I do like what I'm wearing here. It's not my favorite, but its going to be a "keeper". I've recently created folders on my computer labeled "Favorites", "So So, But Keepers", and "Discard?". Then I went back through my past outfits and put (copy/paste) some of them into each of these categories. The ones that landed in the "Favorites" folder I'll eventually go back to and wear more often (I still have a lot of unworn items I need to get to first though-that's another thing I'm working on), the "So So" folder will be worn less often, and the "Discard" folder will encourage me to donate those pieces...either right away (which I've done with some) or leave them there as pending to keep under consideration for letting go. Maybe not everyone needs this process, but it has helped me get started with my closet purging efforts. I really need to work on shoes next! ha
*Update: I've now filled 4 bags for donation and have included 2 pair of shoes. Even though it hasn't made a huge dent in my stuffed wardrobe...it still feels good...and I am finding a tad bit more wiggle room for my hanging items and extra space on my shelves and in drawers.
