A minimalist wardrobe is creating an entire wardrobe out of the essential pieces. I bet your closet is full of items you don’t like, don’t wear, and probably don’t even know it’s there. Streamlining your closet will not only help you get dressed in the morning, but you’ll be able to fully maximize the potential of your closet.

When you have less in your closet, you’ll want to invest in the quality of those pieces. Take some time to go through your closet and donate all those things you don’t wear anymore!

Ask yourself:
1. Do I wear this?
2. Is this my style?
3. Is this in good condition?
4. Will I ever wear this?
5. Does this go with other things in my closet?

Then write up a list of all those things you don’t have for a good shopping list. Here’s a good place to start:
