I’m sure you’ve heard the saying a million times: “one person’s trash is another person’s treasure.” This is really true. Even I find cool items at the Goodwill or thrift stores that someone decided is no longer relevant in their life. I take it and fix it up and make it a treasure in my own home. Your closets may be a source of blessings for someone else. It could even be a blessing for you, too, because you probably need more room to get even better clothes to add to your closet.
Decluttering is an essential part of Feng Shui. Clutter can stagnate the energy in your home. Stagnated energy can cause a host of other problems in your life with relationships, health, finances, and more. Now may be a good time to go through your closets and remove clothes that are too little or too old-fashioned to ever see the light of day again — at least on your body.
Someone else may be waiting to wear that ugly Christmas sweater that you bought for the Christmas party last year. After all, you can’t wear the same one this year because someone is bound to call you out about it. So just get rid it it along with other stuff that is piling up in your closet.
