Step #4: Dress for Success
Day 10. Purge
Go through your closet and drawers. Get rid of what is worn out or in disrepair. Make a donation to a charity or sell discarded items in a garage sale. You can also try selling your clothing on a buy and sell app like Close5, OfferUp or LetGo – all of which help you declutter while making a bit of extra cash. The key is to actually get rid of what you’ve decided to purge.
Day 11. Choose Your Style
Do you wear pants nearly every day? Or do you always wear skirts to work but never a dress? Perhaps you’re a lover of comfy yoga attire? You may not have noticed, but many successful celebrities have automated their wardrobes to cut down on how many daily decisions they have to make. If you already gravitate toward certain colors or specific styles of clothing, you are well on your way to automating your wardrobe.
Day 12. Set Up Your Closet
Organize your clothing by color or type. For example, group all your pants together and gather your shirts in one place. This will make it easy for you to dress each day, saving you time and hassle. To take this one step further and save more money, don’t buy clothing that doesn’t fit into your wardrobe.
Step #5: Deal with Your Phone Charges
Day 13. Examine Your Phone Habits
It’s not uncommon to carry your phone around 24/7. In fact, in many cases, you likely set your phone down right in front of you “just in case.” If this sounds familiar, you might benefit from paying attention to your phone habits. Do you send tons of text messages? Perhaps you message your spouse daily when you’re on your way home from work. Wouldn’t it be nice to automate this task?
Day 14. Automate What You Can
Did you know you can set your phone up to automatically switch to vibrate at night so you don’t get phone calls that wake you up? You can also use an app like Tasker to help you automate different tasks. For example, you can have Tasker automatically open apps at a certain time of day, or when you reach a certain geographical location. It’s a paid app that’s only available on Android, but if you live with your eyes glued to your smartphone, it may be a helpful way to save time. The more you automate your phone usage, the more time you’ll have to spend on important things.
