Will You Try The April Closet Challenge?
I bet you can complete this challenge super easily!
Welcome to April. My favorite month of the year. From that I'm sure you've already guessed my birthday is this month, it's the 14th, but also I love that April is when we usually get to break free from our winter coats and boots and commit to a spring wardrobe.
With that in mind, I created the April Closet Challenge, starting today, and I would love if you tried it, even just for a few days.
The idea is that through the end of the month, on work days only, I'm wearing stuff from the left side of my closet.
Why the left side? Because that's where I keep all the clothes I rarely wear. Women especially suffer from this closet problem.
I can't tell you how many times I've been to a bridal shower, wedding, baby shower, or party and I think I need to buy a new dress for the occasion. Half the time, I end up buying something and that something gets worn just a few times... and sits on the left side of my closet.
There's a chance by the end of the month, I will venture to my bottom right drawer, where I keep pants I never wear, but really I bet I have 21 dresses hanging in my closet that never get any use. Paired with high heels of course. Linda our HR admin is already overwhelmed with my high heel clomping, so for her sake I also have flats with me... for hallway running.
All you have to do is go through your closet and wear something old, that will be "new" to your co-workers. The challenge doubles as a spring cleaning challenge because chances are, when you're looking for your old/new outfits, you'll get rid of ugly things that are just taking up precious closet space.
