It’s getting to that time of year where it’s out with the summer clothes and in with the winter clothes. You soon notice that you can’t get into your wardrobe because everything is compiled together into one big beautiful mess. With the winter mornings quickly approaching, you are going to want your mornings to be as easy as possible. You can do this by setting up your wardrobe so it’s nice and organised and things are easily accessible so get your men’s tracksuit on and get cleaning.
There are a few things you will need to do this right:
Bin Bags: This will be to take your unwanted clothes to a charity or throw them away.
Tape Measure: This will be for measuring the interior of the wardrobe so you can fit things in perfectly.
Full-Length Mirror: This will be for trying on the clothes before you decide to throw them away. Make sure it’s full length so you can see yourself as a whole.
A Basket: This will be used for the little bits you find in your wardrobe once cleaned such as lost jewellery etc.
Empty Your Whole Wardrobe
The first thing to do is completely remove everything from your wardrobe and clean it thoroughly. This way you will remove all the dust and it will help your wardrobe look finished once full again. Once you have completely cleaned it, you can measure the inside so you know how much room you have.
Declutter Clothes, Shoes and Accessories
You can do this by setting up groups of clothing:
Keep: This is the stuff you are going to keep and continue to wear.
Sell: This is the stuff that is still in good condition and is okay to sell. Usually, these items are branded to get more money.
Donate: This will be stuff that is in good condition but you just simply don’t wear it anymore or it doesn’t fit.
Bin: This is stuff that is not suitable for wearing or selling or even giving away. This will be easy to figure out because you won’t even need to think about it.
Buy Some Wardrobe Organisers
This is why its best to measure the wardrobe whilst it is empty as you can see what organisers will fit. This will save you time and money as you don’t want anything too big if it will take up too much space. There are a variety of options for you but the most popular ones are for your tees and underwear.
Organise Your Clothes Shoes and Accessories
This is the part where all your hard work pays off. Now you can put all of your clothes, shoes and accessories back.
Groups The Same Clothes Together: This will make it easier to navigate when you are making an outfit. Decide where the best place for each group of items will go such as putting all your tees in an organiser whilst putting your jumpers and athleisure like your full tracksuit on the shelf to save space.
Utilise The Prime Real Estate: this is for the stuff you use the most such as the stuff you go to work with, the stuff you wear for your exercise etc. This will only be minimal so only put things you need to access regularly.
Tuck Away The Least Used: This will be the stuff you just won’t use but are too good to give away such as hats, a spare blanket etc.
