3 Important Questions to Ask Yourself Before Buying New Clothes

If you’re a true shopaholic who can’t resist buying a cute new item of clothing every time you see one, chances are you have a lot of stuff you don’t actually need. You could avoid pilling up spare clothes by asking yourself these three simple questions.

Does it fit into my wardrobe?

As soon as you see an item you like, start thinking of a way to pair it off with the rest of the clothes you already have. If you can’t come up with anything, it’s highly likely it will just be taking up space.

Happy Wednesday night friends! I have been so excited about this reveal and to finally share with you our organized closet😆! Go back several days ago by swiping left to see the before (proceed with caution 😅😅). It was cluttered, messy and had truly become a catch all for kids art work, out of season home decor etc. It was not functioning well for my husband and me; we could not see 1/2 of what was actually in there haha! Now, back to current day and the transformation …it is now tidy, functional and completely decluttered🙌🏻! Twelve trash bags of giveaway + finding the right home for pieces that didn't belong in our closet and implementing the right pieces from @thecontainerstore #sponsored was how we did it! I love every piece we used from @thecontainerstore 😍. Have you been wanting to tackle tidying up your closet? I've shared all the details, including links to all of these boxes, hanging compartments, shoe organizers, hangers and more over on the blog! It is so easy to go check it out, simply click link in my profile and you'll see "How To Create The Perfectly Organized Closet". I discuss all the action steps and how these pieces truly restored order in our closet. Come over and check it out👏🏻💕💕. Let me know what you guys think or if you have any questions! I'd love to encourage you to give it a go too! Have a beautiful and blessed night friends!💗 #myorganizedlife #diy #diyhomedecor #blog #blogger #organized #organization #organizedhome #springcleaning #mariekondo #tidyingupwithmariekondo #tidy #tidyingup #closet #closetorganization #beforeandafter #transformationtuesday #farmhouse #farmhousedecor #farmhousestyle #rusticdecor #cottage #fixerupper #declutter #decluttering #wardrobe #homesweethome #instagood

Do I already have something similar?

There’s no need to buy another plain white t-shirt if you already have ten of those in perfectly good shape. Save your money for something that will allow you to expend your style and try something different, instead.

Can I wear it long-term?

We all tend to go crazy for latest new trends, but if you’re purchasing an item that’s really expensive, make sure it’s something you’ll be wearing long-term, not just for one season.
