The holidays are a magical time for giving + receiving gifts + also one of my favorite times to edit! There’s no better time to let go of some of the stuff that’s hiding among dust bunnies + create room for the new gifts you’ve received. Here are some places I recommend donating your unwanted items as well as some editing tips. Happy Holidays!
1. Follow the “Give One, Get One” rule. This is so simple + so effective!
2. Don’t look at the brand or designer when editing your closet. Too often guilt comes into play when we think about the cost of the item. The truth is the money was spent a long time ago + keeping the item in your closet isn’t going to put any funds back into your bank account.
3. Stick to a number you feel comfortable with. For example, if your editing vases, pick a number you feel comfortable with such as 5 and only keep your favorite 5. Let the rest go. Picking a number will help you stick to your goals.
