    I'm thinking I should cull down to like 3 pairs shorts 4 t's etc but not sure if that's too extreme

    That's what I'm struggling with, the thought of not having it in there

    I looked and this thread but could not post as I have too much and I can't just cull to a small amount. I do lots of little culls - usually because it does not fit anymore etc etc but I still love every item I have.

    I will say that I would suggest doing it slower and not all at once. You may regret it and make up for it in a buying frenzy.

    Start with what does not fit. If it does not fit just get rid of it. Followed by what do I never wear - you know the kind of clothes where you *think* you will wear it but never do? Then all the clothes needing repairs or that are just past their prime either mend/just get rid of.

    You can keep doing this every season. Or whenever the culling feeling takes over.

    I have a fair amount of clothes but there's nothing in my wardrobe that I don't wear. I go by the Marie Kondo method- if something in my wardrobe doesn't give me joy, I get rid of it. Anything I've worn once but never worn again goes. Anything that doesn't quite fit goes. Anything I don't feel fantastic in- off it goes. I definitely recommend reading her book- it's amazing the amount of negative feelings you can get just opening your wardrobe and looking at all the things you can't wear or don't want to. Sounds silly, but I often felt guilty about getting rid of things, because there were memories attached or they cost a lot, etc. I don't think it's necessarily something you can be completely rational about- I still have things that I haven't worn in years but because they give me joy they can stay. Whereas something I might wear all the time but is misshapen through overwear etc and makes me feel frumpy goes. I've bought dresses online and immediately got rid of them because they're not exactly what I wanted- whereas in the past I would have held onto them for years

    Is she the Japanese lady who writes about how to cull effectively? Her thoughts are really incisive and resonated with me (assuming jt's the same person). Off to google.
