5 signs you need to de-clutter your wardrobe
How do you know when it’s a good time to start decluttering your wardrobes? We’ve covered just a few of them.
You Have Plenty of Clothes, but Nothing to Wear
A good sign your walk-in wardrobe or built-in wardrobe could do with some attention is when it’s filled with clothes – but you’re not interested in wearing any of them. This could be due to several factors: your tastes may have changed, your body shape might have altered, or you have simply outgrown a lot of your old clothes.
Sound like you? If so, it might be a good time to cull. Go through your clothes carefully, setting aside clothes, shoes and accessories to donate to charity or to give to friends and family.
It’s a New Season
When the weather starts warming up, it’s time to store away those bulky jackets, jumpers and scarves. You might be amazed how much more space you can create by swapping out your wardrobe with the seasons.
Invest in some labelled boxes or crates to store in your overhead wardrobe shelving, and fill them with your seasonal clothing. Make sure everything is freshly washed and pressed before you store it, to make it easier to transfer back to your wardrobe once you need them again.
You Waste Time Trying to Find What You Need
An organised wardrobe fitout can save you serious time in the morning when it comes to locating the things you need. If your wardrobe is bursting at the seams, it can make it very difficult to get ready on time (and without the stress).
Besides donating your unwanted clothes, some other simple organisational hacks include:
- Using thinner flocked hangers instead of bulky wooden or fabric hangers
- Using shelves or drawers to store your t-shirts, jumpers and pants so that they’re easily accessible
- Invest in hooks to store hats, belts or ties, or use the space behind your wardrobe doors to hang accessories
- Store ‘like with like’, whether that’s accessories of a particular colour, or clothing types
You Start a New Job
Staring a new job with a new dress code? You might need to make a bit more room for your new outfits. Go through your current clothes carefully and put together outfits that will work well for your new role.
To make things easier, separate your work clothes within your wardrobe, so it’s easier for you to quickly pull together an outfit when you’re getting ready in the morning.
Your Wardrobe Includes a Floordrobe
One of the most tell-tale signs that your current wardrobe storage solutions might not be up to the task is if your clothes escape your wardrobe to become a floordrobe. If this happens, it’s time to be strict with yourself and seriously decide what you can and can’t live without.
If you’re wearing 20% of your wardrobe 80% of the time, the rest of your clothes, shoes and accessories might be ready for a new home.
