10 Tips for cleaning your closet | WednesdayintheWord.com

I finally tackled the task of cleaning my clothes closet.  In case you’re also struggling with how to lighten your possessions, here are some of the criteria I used to decide what to keep and what to donate.

I tossed clothes that met the following criteria:

  1. I bought it when Ronald Reagan was president.
  2. I could remember wearing it while nursing my now married daughter.
  3. I inherited it from a relative who passed away more than 10 years ago.
  4. I only wear it because it lacks holes, tears, or fading.
  5. When I wear it, I feel uncomfortable for any reason (size, color, style, fit, length, etc.)
  6. I only wear it because it is still in my closet.
  7. I am only keeping it because a relative gave it to me or made it for me.
  8. I cannot remember wearing it in the last decade.
  9. When I wear it, people ask me if I’m attending a 70s costume party.
  10. I have one more in a drawer just like it.

I apologize that this post has nothing to do with Bible study.  One of my friends asked (semi-seriously) if I do anything besides study.  Now she knows.
