Get a Second Opinion:

If you want to control the wardrobe shopping budget then you need to figure out where you are overspending. When it comes to clothes, it is hard, to be honest with ourselves. We love everything we buy and we do not want to throw it away. If you want to stop overspending then you need an honest second opinion. You can always invite your honest friend while spring cleaning. It will help in determining which clothes are a good part of the wardrobe and which ones are total wastes. You can use the opinion during the next shopping trip. It will restrain you from buying colors and styles that do not suit you.

When you are cleaning the wardrobe you need to divide the clothing items into different categories. Create three piles. In the first pile, you should put the clothes that you do not want. In the second put the clothes that you do not wear anymore. The third pile is for the ones that you do not need. The final pile is for the ones you keep.

If you are having difficulty in categorizing you should consider following things:

  • When was the last time you wore it?
  • Do you have more than one of those things in your closet?
  • Do you feel comfortable wearing it?
  • Does it fit?
  • Does it go with more than three items in your closet?

These questions are perfect for determining whether a certain clothing item is a keeper or not.

What is lacking:

After you clean out the wardrobe, you are ready for the shopping list. You need to determine which outfits the wardrobe needs. It is never a good idea to go shopping without a plan. It makes it easy to get carried away by new and fancy trends. If you have a shopping list you will stay focused. You do not want to waste your wardrobe budget on mindless purchases. It is important that you have a balanced wardrobe. It makes sure that you always have something nice and fashionable to wear, no matter what the occasion. If you have a great pair of jeans but lack good t-shirts to pair with it, then you should get some t-shirts.

Keep these things in mind and you will be able to build a great wardrobe. You can always give the clothes you do not need to charity or thrift stores so you have a zero waste wardrobe.
