Revamping Your Wardrobe
Do you like to keep your wardrobe in selective ordered and organised? Or do you find heaps of clothes and shoes descending out on top of you every time you open up the wardrobe? If you fall into the latter crowd (and you won’t be alone!) then maybe you will find the tips and tricks in today’s post useful.
The first and most significant things you can do are to declutter. And when you’ve mastered the art of that, you must learn to do it on a routine basis, at least every six months. If it isn’t something you commonly do, then the first time is going to be quite a painful experience, but once you’re passed that it’s easy!
Firstly you need to sift through every item in that wardrobe and look at it impartially. If you haven’t used it in the last year, and can’t see yourself wearing it in the next, get rid of it. Try on things and see if they still fit. Do this for everything! Make several piles, one for the charity shop, one for eBay, and lastly one for recycling. Unfortunately, some items may have no life left in them and recycling is your only choice.
Once you’ve finally cleared out the clutter, you can take a long hard look at what you have left and determine how to organise it.
Section Your Belongings:
By this, I mean order and organise them into relevant groupings. I don’t necessarily say that you have to colour code everything. Just group clothes and shoes, scarves together which will make them simpler to store and easier to locate. You could also arrange them down further into seasons. For example, find your winter clothes and keep them all together. You may decide that your wardrobe needs a little breathing space, and pack all of one season’s clothes into storage bags to go below the bed or up in the loft. It’s an excellent way to thin out your possessions. One of the biggest difficulties in keeping a wardrobe organised is that we have too much in them.
Organise Your Furniture:
There are loads of ways you can help keep an organised wardrobe. One way is to segment it up and label the insides. Some smaller items can be held in colour coded storage boxes on shelves for example, and labelling them is an excellent way to stay on top of the clutter. Use stacking baskets for wintertime jumpers and t-shirts so they can be quickly accessed. Store your shoes at the foot of the wardrobe alternating the way they face to save valuable space, hide smaller handbags inside larger ones.
So what do you think of my top tips? Are you inspired enough to give your wardrobe an overhaul?
