3 STEPS TO CREATING A SHOPPING PLAN:
1. Identify what you have a lot of
Without taking anything out or rearranging your closet, take a look and identify what you have too much of. Why do you like that color, cut, or style? Maybe you love wearing blue, but could branch out to different shades to make sure you aren’t buying the same things all the time. Or perhaps you notice that you have a ton of v-neck cardigans and could use some variety in style.
2. Make a list of what to avoid
Take note of fabrics, colors, or silhouettes that you don’t like so you don’t buy them again. Is there an item that you love the look of but find that you don’t actually take it out and wear it? Why is that? Is the fabric uncomfortable the cut awkward? Try to identify exactly what it is so that you can avoid making that shopping mistake again.
Also, if there is something you already have enough of, try not to buy more of it. Spend your time and money on things that will add value not just bulk to your wardrobe.
3. Find what you need more of
Organize your closet by category (shirts, jackets, dresses) and find the missing pieces. Do you need more work appropriate pants? Casual shoes? When you have it all lined up in this way, it should be easier to see which category is lacking and which is overflowing.
Don’t forget to write it all down and take it with you! I suggest making the list on your phone so it is always with you and you can edit it as you go. This will keep you on track and help you to not get overwhelmed by all the options.
