Where should you start when organising your wardrobe?

Starting can sometimes be a daunting task for something that is a relatively easy task. When you are faced with a cupboard full of clothes, you might just change your mind and feel like running away!

Guess what, they will still be here when you get back and you will waste even more time whenever you need something from your wardrobe.

Here are some tips to overcome your fear of the  . . . . dreaded wardrobe!

If the thought of organising your wardrobe scares you, how do you start to organise it?

Here’s a checklist of 5 things to do before you organise your wardrobe so you don’t end up getting discouraged:

  1. Choose a time to organise
  2. Allow enough time
  3. Locate a donation center
  4. Sort your clothes
  5. A step by step plan

When should you organise your cupboard? There are moments in your life when you should start organising your cupboard such as when it becomes a total mess, when the season changes, when you are having a baby, moving house, doing renos or any time you can’t find what you need quickly.

Allow enough time

Can you spare your whole Saturday morning? It might take you 3 hours or more to organise your cupboard so make sure you have enough free time. No point starting and not having enough time to finish the job, you are likely to rush it and create an even more mess.

Locate a donation center

Try to find a donation center where you can donate your clothes that you no longer use. It’s easier to let go of your favourite jeans that doesn’t fit anymore if it’s for a good cause, right?  Take your bags to the op shop as soon as possible so you are not temped just to put these clothes that you really don’t need anymore, back into your cupboard.

Sort your clothes

Have a sorting system before you begin. Decide which clothes you should get rid and what is right to hold on. Be hard on yourself, are you really even going to fit back into that? You haven’t worn it for years are you likely ever again? Think about packing your winter clothes in a box and store it in the roof or your garage until next season.

Do you have something that you love, but don’t want to pay to get it fixed? Let go of it. Decide what you should move on to a good home (someone elses home) and what you are going to keep.

Planning on losing some weight? Well, wouldn’t it be great to have a reward afterwards and get some new clothes? In the meantime, your cupboard won’t be cluttered up with clothes you can’t wear.

A step by step plan

Come up with a plan and stick with it. This will help you stay motivated and stay on track. Organising your wardrobe might be tough, but doing these things will make your life a lot easier and simpler.
