The Effortless Closet shares how she created a more versatile and efficient wardrobe by cleaning out closet clutter.
Guest post by Randi of The Effortless Closet.
I’m so honored to be sharing a little bit of my story here. The ideas Clutter Healing focuses on of living with clarity and efficiency really resonate with me.
I used to be overwhelmed with a closet full of clothes, but somehow I never had anything to wear. I didn’t feel comfortable or confident in the outfits I put together, so I filled the void by buying even more clothes. It was a vicious cycle that just wasn’t working for me anymore. So I started paring down my closet and that’s when I realized that less truly is more.
I started investing in clothes that genuinely brought me happiness and letting go of the clothes that were just taking up space. Getting rid of all the excess was really key to honing in on a style that’s simple and effortless but still has an element of fun. I was able to come up with outfit formulas that made me feel like the best version of myself and made getting dressed simpler. I also came up with a general color palette that made it easy to mix and match everything in my wardrobe.
I now own around 50 items of clothing, compared to the hundreds I used to own. My closet is cohesive enough that it’s easy to grab a few pieces and create a great outfit in a matter of minutes, but it’s also versatile enough that I don’t get bored.
I never really realized how detrimental all the excess STUFF in my life could be until I started whittling down my wardrobe. Once I started to let go of the clothes I didn’t absolutely love, I realized that this idea of simplicity and efficiency could be applied to other areas of my life too – makeup, kids clothes and toys, home decor, cookware, everything. It’s amazing how my whole life changed for the better when I decided to get rid of all the clutter.
