It’s amazing isn’t it? Somehow you feel like you have nothing to wear but your wardrobe is crammed with clothes! How can this make any sense? It’s like saying that you are hungry and have nothing to eat and there’s a full fridge of food! What to do? Let’s take a look at 8 simple steps to getting things organised.
- If there’s something that you haven’t worn for a year, then just get rid of it. Never mind the condition, price or size. Why a year? Well, think about it, every season has been covered during that period of time and if you haven’t worn it during the year, you probably never will.
- If you have a piece of clothing that you wear, but just don’t feel comfortable in it, out it goes, simple as that.
- Wardrobe too small? Why not do yourself a favour and get one of those good looking and space saving built in wardrobes? They are more popular than ever nowadays and reasonably priced.
- There’s nothing wrong in having clothes that used to fit you, but don’t anymore, but for goodness sakes you don’t need to keep all of them! Styles change, your tastes will change, and your body shape may change, so the chances are that when you ever get back to that size, you’re going to want new stuff anyway!
- Nostalgic clothes that you haven’t been wearing shouldn’t be in your wardrobe. Just simply take a photo of it to preserve the memory, or limit yourself to one piece of the clothes to show your children so that they can have a good laugh at what I wore before, someday.
- You don’t really have to do it all at once. Try taking your organizing in stages and be motivated by your success. One day you could do shirts, the next day shorts, etc. Lucky enough to be residing in W. Australia and looking for the very best in wardrobes? Wardrobes in Perth from Lifestyle Wardrobes offer a top class and quality choice of all things wardrobe and all with the number one service in town. Check ’em out!
- Take the time to try everything on. Do not hold something up and say uhmmm this is really nice, I think I will keep it. That’s way too easy, and what you might have forgotten is that although it’s a nice piece, the buttons sag at the front showing off parts that you rather it wouldn’t! That’s silly, so out it goes, get rid of it.
- You only have the space that you do and wardrobe solutions need solutions. Jamming all your clothes into the wardrobe and battling with them on a daily basis to find what you need, just won’t make your wardrobe grow over night. If this happens every day, you will soon get irritated and who wants that? It’s just not worth it.
Getting it Just Right
Well, there you go, if that doesn’t make your wardrobe a nicer place to hang out, then nothing will!
