I think I read somewhere that you use 20% of your clothes 80% of time.
For me, this step is just something I need to do to cull my nasty habit of buying clothes and shoes that I don't actually wear. I've never put myself in debt or anything, but I find it harder to get dressed now than in the past, because I have so much clothes! It's like if you only own one blouse, then you know that's your only option but if you own 10 then you suddenly have to make 10 yes/no decisions just to decide if you want to wear a blouse over a top today. Or, if you own 10 LBDs like I do, it actually works counterintuitively of the usual idea of a LBD.
