Do you save stuff – old clothing and dated accessories – because you think they would make great costuming? Did you (or your kids or grandkids) even look at this stuff for Halloween? No? Do you really have that many situations in your life where you need costume supplies?
If you do find that you (or your kids or grandkids) go looking for costuming during the year, keep all these types of supplies in one bin or drawer so the items’ purpose is clear. Don’t keep outdated clothing and accessories in with the clothing you wear.
If this task doesn’t apply to you: Eliminate an item of clothing or an accessory that you’ll never wear again, whatever the reason.
