There are so many benefits to having an organised wardrobe. From the reduced stress of having to find something to wear in the morning to just keeping it all tidy and in its place, having a more put-together wardrobe can make your mornings so much easier! Let’s face it, no matter how many pieces you own, it’s very easy to feel like you never have anything to wear.
Every now and again it’s important to set some time aside to go through the clothes you have hung up or stuffed in the back of your drawers, then you can really evaluate what you actually use and wear often. Here are some top tips on how to reorganise your wardrobe:
Have a clear out
With capsule wardrobes becoming more and more popular, you may find that having less in your clothes collection is easier for you. To start off with, go through everything you have in your wardrobe and sort it into the following piles:
You’ll be surprised at how many items you’ll have forgotten about that have been lost in what feels like the Narnia section of your wardrobe! When you’ve organised everything into piles, pop everything away that you want to keep and try your hand at making some money with the items you want to sell. It may shock you just how many people are wanting to be more sustainable and purchase things second-hand.
Anything that you want to donate, make sure they are in good condition before dropping them off at your local charity shop.
Get yourself some “in-wardrobe” drawer organisers
There’s nothing worse than not being able to find your best t-shirt or your favourite jumper when you’re searching for it! Investing in some good quality organisers are great to help keep each item in its place. If you need to revamp your furniture too, check your finances first; but doing this along with sorting your clothing collection will leave you with a huge sense of satisfaction.
Boxes for drawers are a great way to keep your underwear neatly packed away, as well as for things like leggings and even makeup and jewellery! You could pick yourself up some extra boxes for things like belts and even ones designed to house watch collections.
Another must for your newly organised storage is something for your shoes. Whether that’s a sturdy shoe rack or a built-in drawer to keep them packed away – keeping your shoes neat and tidy will help to create much more space for other things.
Be conscious in the future not to buy things you don’t need
Now that you’ve had a good clear out and organise, you’ll know exactly what you have available to wear. It’s a good exercise to stop you from potentially buying things you already have. It helps to reduce your fashion waste which is something many of us are becoming more conscious about.
