Three Adjectives

Preparing for my Letting Go of Cutter Workshop involved reading a lot of advice from many experts. Most professional organizers spout the basic principals:  let go - before organizing and only keep what you love, need and use.  The philosophy given my Marie Kondo in her Magic of Tidying Up best selling book is --find the treasures and let go of the rest.  A huge shift in deciding what to keep versus what to let go of.

Can not remember what expert shared the tip for letting go of clothing:

  • Choose 3 adjectives to describe the clothing that you want to wear.  
  • Ask of  each piece of clothing - does this fit what I want? 

I want clothing that is comfortable, classic and fun.   When trying on each item of clothing in my closet and dresser I asked:

  • Is this comfortable? Is this classic?  Is this fun?
  • Easy to tell what was comfortable on and putting on.
  • Some items were classic or fun, but not both.  
A little different twist to support letting go.  Four bags stuffed with good clothing are ready to be release with ease.   My closet and dresser still have more than I need. Spent a few minutes placing each hanger backwards on the rod, to make it easy to see what I am wearing (or not).

  • Remembering to ask before buying clothing if it fits my 3 adjectives.  
What 3 adjectives would you like all your clothing to fit?
