Too many clothes

Inspired by Hostess of the Humble Bungalow's closet picture, I'm posting a shot of mine.   This is a winter shot, but it's just as crowded now with summer clothing, even if there is more colour.  And there are two dressers packed with scarves, t-shirts, jeans, sweaters etc.  Not to mention the shelves of shoes.

I seriously have too many clothes.


  1. Hi Northmoon,

    When I read your opening lines I realized that we bloggers have an affect by what we choose to post.
    I was inspired by metscan's blog to pare down my wardrobe and now it looks like you are considering culling your closet.

    Good luck
    and perhaps you'll show us the after photo!

  2. Wow. You too really have a lot of clothes!
    The easiest way to start decluttering, is to pick out the clothes you really like and like to wear. Next, pull away the clothes you don´t like or don´t wear, even if they have been expensive purchases. What is left? Probably a considerable amount of clothes you feel indifferent about.
    I would probably keep only the ones I really like and try to sell the rest. Some would probably end up in charity shops.
    I know, I know, this sounds cruel, but it only hurts you once ; )!

  3. I've been thinking the same thing about my closet, and I've been chipping away at it bit by bit. But while I admire those who maintain a minimalist and beautiful restraint, my tendencies are a bit too eclectic to achieve that for myself. Somewhere in the middle -- balance is good, right?
