When sorting through your threads it's best to pile them in the heap on your bed. If your bedroom didn't look like a jumble say it certainly will now! From there you can systematically go through each piece and decide whether it stays or goes. Things you should be kissing goodbye to is those clothes that you don't love, don't fit or have seen better days. Yes that includes that favourite shirt that you were going to fix 5 years ago!
Then you need to turn your attention to everything else in your room. In a minimalist bedroom you should only have your absolute favourite things on display. We would recommend only displaying things that add joy to your life. If it doesn't add a little spark to your life then it shouldn't be clogging up your bedroom space.
