Do you have items in your closet that still bear their price tags? If you bought it at the end of the season last year for this year’s use, that’s fine. However, if you bought the item a while ago, it may be time to move it to your donation box.
You may see an item on sale at a price you can’t walk away from, but once you get the item home, you find it doesn’t fit with what you already have. You may have purchased an item for a job interview or a wedding, but you wore something else.
If you couldn’t snip off the sales tag, some part of you knew that you’d never wear the item. The tag sets the item apart from the clothing you do wear on a regular basis. Unless you bought the item for the upcoming season, remove it from your closet.
If this doesn’t apply to you. Use your 15-minutes of decluttering to delete 3-5 unwanted computer files.
