The closet clean out was difficult! I managed to make a huge pile for donating, but my wardrobe is still large. I have five dresses that I rarely wear because I work in a very casual office/lab. After reading this post about getting rid of items that cost less than $20 and take less than 20 minutes to replace, I settled on keeping them. I’ve slowly acquired these dresses, and I feel professional and polished when I wear them.
Two days of purging hasn’t made an impact. If I’m serious about minimalism, I will have to continue purging during weeks 2-4.
