Kondo clothes help

When you Kondo'd clothes has anyone felt like chucking most of their wardrobe?
I had one go and got rid of a fair bit and today I'm tackling my sunmer clothes. Looking at them so many of them look old,worn, faded etc. I could quite happily bin the lot but I don't have lots of money to buy new stuff so what do you do, bin or keep even though it looks crap?!

It's my birthday soon and family will ask me what shops I'd like vouchers for so I could get some new things but not enough for a whole new wardrobe.

Looking around me I am surrounded in every room by clothes; mine, dh's & ds & dd's. It's just too much to cope with, all the washing & piles
of dirty laundry everywhere, it's getting me down.

Does anyone manage with not many clothes? Why do we seem to feel the need to have so many?
I need to start kondo'ing this morning but worried I could be left with hardly anything to wear.

Any advice please?

Why dont you keep the things that wash & wear well & make you feel really lovely in. Even if you are only left with 5 tops & 5 trousers!

Ive Kondoed. You are right about having to many clothes being overwhelming.

Lets say you have 30 tops.
Thats one for each day of the month.
Thats one top a month.
So you might only get 12 wears out of it in a year.

Or have 5 really good tops & wear a couple of times a week.

Thanks Dawg that sounds sensible. The capsule wardrobe picture is really helpful maybe I need to think along those lines.

I've started going through and so much of is is tatty. None of my clothes seem to look nice after a few washes and lots of things seem to lose their shape. I don't think I'd miss any of it to be honest!

My clothes look awfully tatty, but I have the problem that when I look at clothes in the shops I can't find anything I like -at all- enough to buy. :-( I have an idea of what I like, or will suit me (mainly based on the tatty clothes I already own), but can't find anything that matches the picture in my head.
