Start by putting aside anything you haven’t worn for more than 12 months, to donate. Try on the rest to see if each item is still right for you. It can be a heart- wrenching process – letting go always is – and it’s OK to keep one or two sentimental items (your wedding dress, for example).
Try using the mantra from the bestselling book The Life-Changing Magic Of Tidying Up, in which Marie Kondo advises looking at every item and asking: ‘Does it spark joy?’ If the answer is no, it’s time to bag up those items for Vinnies.
If your clothes are work-appropriate, consider donating them to one of the organisations that help disadvantaged women get into a job. Visit fittedforwork.org, wearforsuccess.org.au, or sydney.dressforsuccess.org.
