How Minimizing Your Wardrobe Can Greatly Improve Your Mood

Sounds a bit strange, especially with a new season upon us. However, when we all start to come out of the Winter months a great change is happening. One of them could be purging our wardrobe, or minimizing. Not because the temperature rises and we can wear a simple jacket instead of five, no it’s about decluttering for a better and eased mind. Yes, clutter can throw you off balance and can even lead to adding more to the clutter.


Yep. A cluttered wardrobe can cause frustration… every day before work. Whether this involves digging out a top that somehow ends up in the back. Or for a pair of slacks that fell off the hanger. Dealing with putting together an outfit when there are too many options can lead to frustration, which has already offset your morning.

They say don’t go to bed angry, well how about, don’t leave the house already frustrated because of a cluttered wardrobe.

Have you been wanting to visit Rome, Paris, or Brazil?
