Have More Clothes Without Spending a Dime!

Psst… Want to know a secret? You can have many more clothes for nothing. Nada. Zip. Zilch.

But wait… do you really need more clothes in your closet? Probably not.So what I want to share with you is how to get rid of the clothes that are distracting you from all the amazing things already in your closet, yet feel like you have so many more clothes. Ready?

After getting inside countless closets I’ve come to the conclusion that most women have way more clothes than they actually need. This happens for reasons that I won’t go into here, but let’s just say that we use the ‘more is better’ approach almost as a security blanket. In a comforting sort of way it can be reassuring to see that you have a closet that’s packed to the gills. Yet the reality is that a closet packed to the gills actually LIMITS you!

The secret to getting more clothes really lies in getting rid of clothes. Uh-huh. Seriously. I know it sounds crazy but I have had many a client tell me that, after getting rid of almost half of what was in her closet, that she felt that she had more clothes. Can you believe that?

Here’s how:

1/ First, cull through your clothes and get rid of all the ‘shoulds’, those items you don’t love and really don’t even wear. Release all those items you bought on clearance and try really hard to wear but never leave the house in. Get rid of all those gifts that just weren’t quite right. Lose those pieces that fit you 10 pounds – or 10 years – ago. Feel the clarity as you lighten your load. It’s cathartic, to say the least, to get rid of what you really weren’t wearing at all!

2/ Now, choose an item that you generally wear in one specific way – say, with your white top or black pants. Now ask yourself, what could I pair with this that’s totally unexpected, yet right on target? Feel free to step outside your comfort zone and put things together in a whole new way. Try them on. If it works, you’ll know it immediately! If not, you’ll know that too. By pairing things in unexpected ways you create many more outfits that you originally thought you could and increase your wardrobe exponentially without spending a cent!

3/ Rinse and repeat. This is not something to do every once in a while, but a trick I’d like to encourage you to add to your arsenal on a regular basis. It will keep you out of a rut while keeping your clothing budget in check and maximizing what you already own!
