There is so much out there about de-cluttering?  De-clutter your house, your home, your garage and even de-clutter your life. Where do you start? We all have soo much stuff and end up with overwealm and not knowing where to start and end up doing nothing. Here is a simple and easy way to de-clutter your wardrobe. Who knows you could go onto other areas of your life too.

A simple and easy way to de-clutter your wardrobe

I  would start with asking yourself these questions?

  • Do you love it
  • Does it fit or can it be altered
  • Is it in one of your colours that you know suits you?
  • Is the style flattering?
  • Would I buy it today if I saw it in the shops?

If you can answer yes to all of these questions, then it is probably worth keeping. So many ladies have wardrobes bursting with clothes and can’t see the wood from the trees. Do you know that the average women wears 80% of her clothes 20% of the time.

What we are aiming to acheive here is a wardrobe full of clothes that you love and you love wearing. If you have not worn something this season there is probably a reason why not. It will be one of the items that comes out of the wardrobe, you put on and for whatever reason you take off again.

I have heard things like “I have been shopping my whole life and I still have nothing to wear” or your partner will say ” How can you have nothing to wear with all those clothes?” Sound familar? So, what do you need to do? De-clutter I hear you say but how? For best results wait until you are in the mood. Set aside some time and tackle one wardrobe at a time. When you take out each item before you throw it away is if there is anything else in your wardrobe that you can wear it with. You will be able to make some new outfits from some things you already have in your wardrobe.

I would make five piles

  • Clothes to keep
  • Items to sell – Ebay, Facebook groups, Dress agencies & Pre-loveld stores
  • Charity Shops
  • Repairs/dry cleaning
  • Rubbish

Once you have put the clothes back into the wardrobe I would suggest that you put all the hangers the wrong way round. Each time you wear an item put them back the right way. At the end of the season all the hangers that have not turned round you have not worn. You will then be able to see what you have not worn.

If you have had a colour session, or know what colours suit you, start by throwing away all the colours you know do not look good against your skin. You can wear the wrong colours on your bottom half as long as you wear one of your colours oon the top.
