me, coachella, 2003

I clean out my closet once if not a few times per year, but this last year I’ve been getting rid of stuff like never before. I went from over a hundred pairs of shoes/sandals/sneakers/boots to 43, my drawers are not overflowing, and I was actually able to give Hubbie extra hanging space. Purging, which I believe should also occur with nostalgia (do you really need old love notes from your ex?), habits (being a flake is not sexy), friends (if you’re the one always calling…), and lovers (if you’re experiencing more frustrations than orgasms), also provides this amazing emotional relief, which I will take any day of the week.

Are you ready to rid yourself of some baggage? If so, ask yourself these six questions, which can apply to more than just the items in your closet:

1. Do you love it?

2. Is it too fucked up to fix?

3. Have you done anything with it over the last year?

4. Do you have many multiples of it?

5. Does it fit?

6. Are you really going to alter it?

p.s. no, I’m not going to Coachella this year, but if you are, and want some ideas for what to wear, read Neekoh’s three part series starting here:
