have come to mind…after performing some here2bhelpful tasks- some suggestions
that l myself need to follow and mostly do..except for the ones where l know it should go but one day l am going to fit into that size 12 pair of jeans…geez really who am l kidding. If and when l get down to that then l know l thoroughly deserve to splurge and buy myself the best and most comfy pair of jeans around.
Why do l think that keeping outdated ones is something that l am likely
to wear anyway. Grab some bags and follow some hints – it’s time to declutter that wardrobe space.
Organising your wardrobe can be the key to starting your day off well, after all isn’t that one of the first places we head to in the morning after toilet and shower visits.
Mm…now what to wear for the day…nothing worse than staring at your
wardrobe and not being able to find anything deemed appropriate for the day or
not finding it because let’s face it nothing in there is organised.
Let’s face it your wardrobe should at least be colour coordinated and organised into seasons…just to make your life easier. There isn’t enough space l hear you saying…well maybe that is a good thing because perhaps for you now is
the time to-
Purge-Before you can get organized, it is imperative to remove every single piece of clothing, pair of shoes and accessories from your wardrobe that you either never wear or shouldn’t wear. You know what I’m talking about. No more denial! Really you haven’t worn that in a year or even stretch it to two…well now is the time to rid yourself of it. I so many times say to my clients “wow- you have a lot of clothes, surely you don’t wear them all and the answer always is yes l do! Ummm…..sorry but No you don’t. If you are unable to attempt to purge yourself then an objective eye (from a friend or personal organizer) will help you move past your emotional connection to your excess things and understand what is really contributing to your overall image and overall abundance in the wardrobe.
Research studies tell us we only wear 20% of our wardrobe 80% of the time. After the “purging” comes-
Presentation- The one real investment you need to make and must make in this transformation is to purchase matching hangers, all of the same colour which will be practical yet sturdy to boot- wooden ones from Target or Kmart are great and inexpensive. Along with presentation comes of course- Coordination- It is time to put all of your like items together on the rack side-by-side so that you can easily find them. Here is how the groupings should be displayed and hung together on the rack- jeans, pants, skirts, short dresses, long dresses, tops, short sleeved tees, long sleeved tees;, short sleeved blouses, long sleeved blouses, vests, cardigans, and jackets. If you don’t like it that way try a system that works for you…and l do mean works for you. Perhaps you like: Office/Work, Weekend/Casual and Occasion/Evening. Labelling a couple of drawers for “what not” is a good idea- for categories that are too little or fiddly to go elsewhere in your wardrobe – for me it's swimwear, scarves and sleepwear.
Almost finished except for all that pesky footwear you just keep on buying because you just had to have it.
Shoes-Before you organise them you need to check the soles and the heels for wear and tear. Do they need fixing? If so take a trip to the cobbler before you pack them away. Investing in clear boxes for your really good shoes is a great idea. – They’ll protect your shoes and see clearly and easily what you own. If boxes aren't your thing then the best way to stack your shoes is in pairs - with the right toe and left heel facing forward. And group in heels, flats, joggers, boots. You get the idea.
So here are some ideas so when you have the time and inclination-
go forth and organise that very important space we call our wardrobe and if you
run into problems , remember here2bhelpful is just that here to assist
