How many times have you stood in front of your wardrobe and exclaimed ‘I have nothing to wear!’ This normally happens when you have 10 minutes to get ready, don’t feel like ironing and/or it’s a day that ends in y.
Here are seven tips to organising your wardrobe so that you can limit the amount of time it takes to make a decision on what to wear and you feel better about the contents of your closet.
- Clean It Out Ladies
If you have not worn it within the last 12 months, or didn’t wear it last season – get rid of it! Go through each item and categorise into piles, yes or no.
Do you put it on and immediately take it off because it is:
- a bad colour
- it tickles your neck
It is a firm NO. Be ruthless ladies, this one is key to be able to do the next two.
- Organise Your Wardrobe by Category
Dresses hung with dresses, work clothes hung in one area, casual tees in another… I think you get the point. This will cut down time when you are getting ready to go somewhere as you are only looking in one area of your wardrobe. You can go one step further here and code into colour, OCD anyone.
- Ikea your wardrobe
Matching hangers, boxes for belts and shelves for shoes can make all the difference in how you feel about your wardrobe and its contents. Not too mention the efficiencies in finding items when they have a home to go back to.
If you want to get very technical about organising your wardrobe, I believe Marie Kondo has a whole checklist on it called the Konmari Way.
