Some of you may not know this, but I’m actually an accountant by trade. I’m certainly not a style expert or fashionista! That’s one of the reasons I decided to share my story and ideas. Hopefully, as an “everyday woman”, I offer a viewpoint that feels realistic and relatable.⁣

Being an accountant, I LOVE the idea of taking inventory. It’s such an important step! You need to go through what you own with an honest eye before you consider adding new pieces. I did the “big purge” years ago, but I still go through my items each season. I store my off-season clothes in a storage bin in our hall closet. The first step each season is to haul out that bin and assess my inventory. I actually did this “inventory count” in the early spring so I had lots of time to plan ahead for the summer. I ended up identifying a few things that just didn’t work for me, so I sent them off to the consignment shop. ⁣

Laying everything out and taking stock of what I had made me realize that I clearly didn’t NEED anything. That being said, I did want to add a few pieces to have a bit of fun and try a few new silhouettes. Taking inventory early on definitely keeps me on track.⁣

Did you do an inventory count this season? Was it helpful? What did you learn? ⁣
