As the COVID-19 situation unfolds outside, times are more proving testing for millions of restless people sitting at home. In response, many are starting to take on new hobbies, and get creative during quarantine. Whilst being able to stay safely at home and even get bored is a privilege, if you have the time, why not use it to green your wardrobe and organise your way into a more sustainable lifestyle? After all, it’s spring in the northern hemisphere which is traditionally the best time for cleaning.
Here are a few reasons why you should curate your wardrobe during this time:
1. It will make you more mindful of your wardrobe
It’s healthy to do a closet overhaul every once in a while because it helps you see what you have and reconnect with old treasures (yes, we are still talking about clothes).
2. You can limit your consumption of clothing
Being aware of what you own can help you by preventing shopping for duplicates or unnecessary additional items. This also means saving time, money, and, ultimately, the world’s resources.
3. It can shift your focus to longevity
Once you have a curated wardrobe, you can then focus on looking after the pieces of clothing you own, making the best of them for as long as possible. Plus, this new perspective often encourages you to buy more consciously the next time around, looking for items that will last.
4. You can save time and energy in the mornings
A curated wardrobe equals fewer options to drive you crazy with choices when getting dressed (even if you aren’t off anywhere very special right now). You already own the things that work best for you!
