Cleaning out the Closet


Hey Brooke!

Wow! What an eye opening experience. Here’s what blew my mind (what finally clicked) was that I’d rather have things now that don’t work and that I don’t like instead of being without. I know that is scarcity there which is something I’ve been aware of as I do this work. My scarce thinking came up quite a bit. I didn’t want to get rid of clothing because I’m afraid I won’t be able to afford to buy new items. This also helped me noticed why I keep clothes for a long time. I had a sweater I still fit into from 8th grade and I’m 25 now! In the end, I didn’t give it a second thought. Almost all of my closet went to the donation bin. Now I really want to be selective when putting new pieces back in. Do you have a protocol for how long you keep clothing? Thanks!
