The closet tends to be one of the areas in the home that is overstuffed and filled with all sorts of junk that you just forget about. Because of this, decluttering the closet can often seem like such a daunting and exhausting thing to do.

But though this can be true, trimming down your wardrobe is sure to benefit you in more ways than one—not only will you be able to free up more storage space, but you’ll also get rid of unnecessary junk that could only be adding to your stress. So if you want to reduce the contents of your wardrobe once and for all, but have no idea where to start, we give you the five pieces that you should pick out and chuck to the bin.


Clothes you have multiples of

Have you noticed that you have dresses of the same style and print, or two (or more) shirts that look almost exactly the same? If this is the case for you, it is likely that you wear only one garment from each set. Lay the garments down side by side and pick which one is your favorite, then return that to your closet. Meanwhile, the ones you don’t like as much would be better off given away. You most probably won’t really feel that loss, since you already have an item that has the same style or looks the same.

Clothes that you never or rarely wear

You probably have certain pieces that you like wearing, maybe because they are comfortable or versatile or simply your favorite. This means that there are plenty of other pieces in your closet that you never wear, and which you only bought because at some point they had been trendy or on sale. If you have no plans on wearing them at all, it might be better to take them out of your wardrobe and find them a new home, preferably with people who will actually put them to good use.

Clothes you used to love but now hate

Fashion trends are some of the most defining aspects of our lives, so when a certain trend gains popularity, we like to buy pieces that help us keep up with it. But trends pass, and eventually they become a thing of the past. So what happens to those once-trendy pieces you used to wear all the time? They become buried underneath the newer clothes you get. You’ll probably never want to wear those pieces again, so why not get rid of them now?

Clothes that don’t fit you

Just like fashion trends, our bodies change all the time. Whether you are growing taller or losing or gaining weight, the clothes you wear should be able to fit you well, so that you are comfortable when wearing them. It’s time to get rid of the pieces that are now too big, too small, too long, or too short on you, and replace them with clothes that actually fit your body well.


Clothes that are beyond repair

It’s inevitable that you have some clothes that have become simply unusable, maybe because they’ve been severely stained, or riddled with holes, or damaged in other ways. Unless you are thinking about recycling them in some way, the best place for these pieces is the garbage.
