How I’ve Decluttered My Wardrobes and Draws

I have two wardrobes and two sets of medium sized draws of clothes, with shoes in wheely-crates under my bed and tall boots in the corner. I also have a big draw in another room with seasonal blankets, slippers and dressing gowns. Thankfully, I sorted my extensive amount of jewellery and accessories a few weeks ago. Here are the categories I sorted everything into that got edited out of my wardrobes/draws.

 

 

Need to try these on to see if I’ve grown in or out of them

2 bikinis, 2 shorts, 1 bra, 1 top.

To give to charity

1 llama draft excluder, 2 bags, 1 pair shoes, 3 sarongs, 6 tops, 1 jacket, 1 earrings, 1 dressing gown (not shown).

Broken or worn out

1 bag, 1 tracksters, 2 tops, 2 bras, 1 bikini.

FFS, get around to adjusting these or give them away, you lazy git!

Trousers and top with annoying flappy splits up the legs/arms.

I’ve grown out of this style but keeping for the sake of nostalgia

And finally the ‘what the feck was I thinking buying shoes that would suit a Grandad playing lawn-bowls’ category.

Conclusion

I’ve got some sowing to do.

I’ve got some trying on to do.

I’ve got to buy a long sleeved cardigan or shrug (do they even still do those?) to get the most out of strappy dresses and tops.

Apparently, I have a gorgeous hot pink Totes bag with shiny black trim!?

I have Spring/Summer and Autumn/Winter sides to my wardrobe now.

I’ve managed to eliminate 25 items! Seeing as every season I tend to give at least one thing to charity, I’m astonished there were that many things left, not earning their place.

I don’t have massive amounts of extra space but everything isn’t creased and crammed together anymore. I can find things easily without stressing. Everything is on appropriate hangers. Tall boots have rolled up magazines inside to support them. Bigger bags folded or rolled. There aren’t a mass of tangled hangers on the floor of my wardrobe with random stuff on top anymore.

I highly recommend doing this!

Note: The oddly proportioned lama mysteriously escaped the charity bag. Yay, giant lama cuddles!
