Summer to Autumn Wardrobe Declutter

As sad as it may be...Autumn is nearly here and Summer will become a distant memory.  Don't despair .... this is the perfect time to declutter your wardrobe!!

Here are a couple of steps on how to reorganise, get rid and get wearing your winter woolies again:

  1. Take out all Spring/Summer inspired clothing items/accessories from your wardrobe and lay them out on your bed or floor
  2. Create a yes, no, maybe pile of these items.  No items (such as things you haven't even worn this summer or items that you would be embarrassed to give to a friend can go to the charity shop or a clothing recycling point).  Be ruthless and try and decrease the items in the maybe pile
  3. With your 'yes' pile sort into categories like skirts, shorts, beachwear, dresses etc.  Set aside a vac pac bag (try these from from Lakeland) or plastic boxes (so many boxes to choose from and fill each container with the same category. Make sure you label the bag or box
  4. Find some space to store your Summer clobber - perhaps you have some space under your bed, in another wardrobe, shelving or even the garage/loft (make sure the boxes/bags are completely sealed) and completely forget about these items....unless you plan to go away to an exotic location during our colder months!
  5. At this point you probably have so much more space available inside the wardrobe! Get out your winter warmers - jumpers, cardigans, scarves, tights, jeans etc.
  6. Try and hang everything up in category or colour to make your job easier in the morning when you can't quite figure out what to wear!
  7. Make sure accessories are easy to reach but neatly stored in storage boxes or drawers
  8. Sit back, relax, have a cuppa and admire your decluttered wardrobe :)

Hope this helps to get you organised...why don't you try and declutter your wardrobe this weekend?  Would love to hear from you if you do!

Until next time....
