If it fits any of those categories donate it immediately!
- Wash all clothes but don’t iron them as you’ll end up doing it again next winter! Make sure to put it all away in a clean, dry place. On the top shelf of the wardrobe is usually a great place to store winter clothes.
- Now get out all your summer clothes. Go through each item the same way you did before with your winter clothes and follow the same process. Do you love it? Does it fit? Does it make you feel fabulous? If not donate it straight away!
