I don’t know about you but in the past I’ve purchased too many clothes than I care to disclose that I never ended up wearing. They either went on eBay or to Goodwill. And I cringe as I write this thinking about that.
On Sunday, I tidied up our closet at home and realized many items I didn’t even touch, look at, or think about this winter season! So after realizing that, I decided to empty the closet completely. I then looked at each item with an internal checklist of items.
- Did I wear this?
- Is it comfortable?
- Does it still fit?
- Is it out of fashion?
- Where can I wear this item?
I also looked at the items I recently purchased (thanks Lily Pulitzer and Target) and asked the same questions. It turns out that a ton of my clothes either didn’t fit, weren’t comfortable, or could only be worn specific places.
I highly recommend you try this method, it worked great for me. Especially with the warm weather coming.
Create Your Seasonal Shopping List
After you’ve picked the pieces you know you’ll wear and like, it’s time to assess what you’ll need. Shopping with intention is so much more rewarding. Make a list of items you now need. For me it was,
- Black shorts
- Denim shorts
- Pattern blouse
- Neutral blazer
- Pointed toe flats

To make it easy, I’ve created an editable PDF that you can download, check off boxes/ add text, and print as a reminder of what to look for!
