Clean Out Your Closet By Getting Rid of Stuff You Wouldn't Buy Today

We all use a variety of different factors to determine whether or not we should get rid of old clothes. Instead, try using the criteria that got it there in the first place: "Would I buy this if I were shopping?"

Once we've accumulated a bunch of clothing, the decision-making process changes dramatically from the cost/benefit analysis we did when first purchasing it. We have emotional attachment for certain items or have plans to save it for special occasions/when we lose weight/etc. There's nothing wrong with keeping a few items around, but if you have a large amount of clothing in your closet that you wouldn't buy today, that may be the first sign that you should get rid of it.
