Episode 146: Closet Curation (Redux)

Back in January 2019, Janine and Shannon had a long conversation about decluttering our wardrobes, with lots of advice on the how’s and why’s of the process. We’re re-running it this week, as we anticipate our next session of Declutter Happy Hour, coming again in the month of April. If you enjoy this episode, please consider joining us for four live-on-Zoom sessions of the April Declutter Happy Hour!

Most people we meet have more clothes than they wear. When closets are crammed with unworn and unloved clothes, getting dressed (and putting away laundry) is difficult. In this episode, Shannon and Janine talk about curating your closet so it’s a pleasure to use and contains only clothes you love. This is a long episode–we just had so much to say!

Discussion topics include:

  • How most people we meet have some sort of struggle with their clothes
  • The domino effect of a crowded closet
  • The benefits of having a one in/one out policy in your closet
  • The joy and convenience of an uncrowded closet
  • Project 333, the minimalist clothing challenge
  • How Janine really likes wearing the same thing all the time
  • How Shannon had a uniform that she didn’t love–until she went to Stasia’s Style School
  • Janine and Shannon’s recent (painless) closet clean outs
  • Organizing clothes by color
  • Folding shirts like Marie Kondo (which Janine has been doing for many years)
  • How frequent travel can help you pare down your wardrobe
  • Shannon’s patented DIY closet-clearing method
  • Why all this matters and how perfectionism plays a part
