Continuing on my journey on minimalism I went ahead to tackle other items of the category clothing. I am combining many sub-categories that I mentioned in my main post just to avoid too many posts with repetitive or less content.
Now going through my clothes section was the toughest and I needed my own sweet time to do this and hence I picked a weekend for it. Following Marie Kondo’s advice, first I took all my clothes out of the cupboard, and while doing that I realized how many clothes I do have. Let me first show you how the pile looked like:
I realized even though I have so many clothes I only wear a few of them and those few of them are not the ones which are my favorites but one which I find on the top. And I feel very saddened to see this. There are clothes in my cupboard which I absolutely love but I am not wearing them.
Now there are clothes which I decluttered which are in absolutely good condition, but I am discarding them either because it doesn’t suit my style anymore or it doesn’t fit me properly. So, I want to donate it to some NGO. Let me know in the comment box if you know any good NGO in Banglore that can come to pick up clothes from the door.
Even after decluttering I still feel that I have way more clothes than I need but I am not going to get rid of them now, just to avoid any heartache later.
I went through the same process for my undergarments section though I am not going to share the picture of those just to avoid unwanted traffic and attention.
Coming to shoes, I don’t think I am a big hoarder of shoes. I feel I have a reasonable number of shoes and I make sure to wear all of them till the point they are completely dead. And hence I need not spend a lot of time in this section. But still here is a quick before and after look at my shoe cupboard.
