3 Hacks to Get You Making Positive Changes

March 25, 2022

Tackling clutter can be a daunting job, whether it's your desk, paperwork or your garage. Sometimes the biggest challenge is just getting motivated to start the process! When we have things organized we feel a sense of control, and it creates a powerful catalyst for change. So, where to start? There's really no wrong place to start, why not start small with just your wardrobe? So... why clothes? For one, everything’s already in one place, and you won’t disrupt your entire house. 

Taking positive first steps leads to progress in other areas!

3 Hacks to Help You Get Moving in the Right Direction

Make three piles. Start by organizing your whole closet into three piles: currently using, won’t wear again, and resale potential. If you haven’t worn something in over a year, it belongs in the won’t wear again pile. When you’re done, this pile can be donated or thrown out.

This tactic works great for many of the other problem areas in your house as well.

Resale potential. Even lightly used items from notable brands command some resale power. Designer brands like Frye, Tory Burch, Kate Spade, Coach, Patagonia, Anthropologie, Nike, Adidas, J Crew, and Dr. Martens all have consistent resale value. That said, unless it’s a truly rare and vintage item, we’re just trying to recoup something. Used items at full price won’t sell! Use platforms like eBay, Poshmark, or ThreadUP to reach more potential buyers.

Make the most of your money and put it to work in another area that needs a boost like your emergency fund or vacation fund.

What about sentimental value? Some clothes just mean something, even if they don’t fit or you don’t use them anymore. Get creative with old clothes! Use old t-shirts to make a quilt or use old shirts for a pillowcase. Try searching the internet for ‘creative reuse clothes’ to see what else you can find! For everything else, drop it off at the local donation center (or the dumpster).

Once you’ve finished organizing your closet, make note of the changes you start seeing in your spending patterns. Try to be more intentional with your clothing purchases and all of your other purchases as well. Sometimes, it’s worth spending money on a high-quality item – you’ll probably get more use from it!
