Decluttering and Getting Organized with Alternative Capsule Wardrobes
If: You like having your wardrobe make you feel creative and getting dressed to go out is easier but you prefer your wardrobe to still feel fun and playful. You like ambiguous directions or timetables. You like to spend just a bit of time shopping for clothing that you’ll love and wear for many years to come, perhaps even lifetimes. Then it might be time to get an alternative capsule wardrobe.
Getting rid of some of the clothes you don’t need and giving away some of the clothes you do in exchange for a better wardrobe that makes you feel good is one way to declutter and get organized. When you finally have your decluttered and organized home, you’ll feel good about being able to accessorize, match, and accessorize again. The clothes you give away may never end up in use, but they can be put to use somewhere else in your closet or around the house. If you put your clothes into an alternative capsule wardrobe, you can keep them up for a while and then use them again for a present that you’re hoping someone will enjoy receiving, such as a new dress for your daughter’s upcoming wedding.
As you give away clothes that are in your capsule wardrobe, you’ll also be saving money. It’s not so much that you’ll be getting rid of the clothes but because when you have a capsule wardrobe, you’ll be able to buy only the items that you need to wear each season. You won’t have to stock up on a lot of the more expensive items because they won’t be in season. With a capsule wardrobe, you’ll be able to pay less for your clothes each month.
