Spring Cleaning and the Treasures it can reveal.
Updated: Apr 2
Spring has finally sprung and we all know what that means...it's time for some spring cleaning! I don't know about you, but I love spring cleaning. I love getting rid of the old and making space for the new; especially when it comes to my wardrobe.
My winter and summer wardrobes are in two different closets. Not because I have that much clothes (I believe in a few small essential pieces that can be mixed and matched with a few seasonal pieces), but because my closets are so tiny. This means that, each season, I need to change my one wardrobe from my main closet to the storage closet and visa versa.
This gives me the golden opportunity to review my wardrobes. Something I think that needs to be done every season, wether you need to go through the exercise of changing wardrobes or not. When I do this I get to see what items I have worn a lot and so get to keep; which ones I haven't worn and need to throw out; and sometimes I discover an outfit or item of clothing that I have completely forgotten about. That's the best part; finding a forgotten treasure and getting to re-work it into my wardrobe.
These forgotten items are usually items that you have forgotten or written out of your memory for a reason. But sometimes, sometimes, they end up being items that you thought lost. When I find those items I always feel like found a treasure...a treasure of memories, because let's face it, certain items of clothing are connected to certain memories. Just think of that T-shirt you bought when your favourite band was in town. Now imagine discovering it again after a few years while spring-cleaning, and all of those memories that come flooding in.
That is what makes the tedious exercise of spring cleaning so worth it. We know very few people really like spring-cleaning, so I hope this post has given you a different perspective on spring-cleaning. I mean, who doesn't love a good treasure hunt ; )
