Clean Closet… New You!

What's really lurking in your closet?

Peering into its dark recesses, it looks like a scene from a bad horror flick. Years of steadfast procrastination and it comes to this! Don't be afraid… a little springtime closet overhaul can be the best therapy for all your unwanted baggage. Now dive in and make way for a little clarity in your life. See how:

Not a good fit
Your closet: Why not start with your favorite jeans of yesteryear? You know, the ones that have gotten just slightly (impossibly) snug? They're wasting space. Should your body never regress to a size 2, those jeans are a trap for self-recrimination.
You: The same goes for those thoughts taking up valuable mental real estate. If you're clinging to thoughts of your last ex, let 'em go! Those old ideas of what your life is supposed to look like? Out with the trash. Let the "new" you be the new you, and get rid of anything holding you to the constructs of your past.
The reason: Why would you cling to a pair of jeans from the past? You're a whole, new, fabulous you, improved by the experiences of each and every year. Those old things are so last year. Complete your modern-you ensemble with a brand new pair.

Unused and Unnecessary
Your closet: You bought those purple vinyl boots on a whim. You just knew the right outfit would materialize to wear them with. But three years later, there they are, patiently waiting beneath a layer of dust.

You: That's probably not the only "unnecessary" you have hanging around. Seeing someone once in a while 'cause you might hit it off later? Maybe you're keeping them around when you know you're not a match.

The reason: If it hasn't happened yet, it's time to call it quits. Don't wait another three years. Those boots were made for walkin'… to the thrift store.

Make Room for New
Your closet: Once you've cleared out your stores of the old, it's time for the fun part. Make whatever adjustments you'd like (birch wood shelves, color-coded hangers?) and reorganize.

You: It's a great time to take stock of what you have, what works for the now-you and the future-you.

The reason: Now that you've unloaded all that baggage? There's nothin' but room. Fill her up with new hopes, new loves and new adventures, and while you're at it…pick up some black boots and a pair of sexy new jeans.

As you clean out your closet, ask yourself why you're hanging on to things that don't work for you any more. Then try and find the correlation in your mind to each one. It will be the best emotional spring cleaning you've ever had!
