How to organise your wardrobe.
If you’re like most people, your wardrobe is a mess. I know that because I’m one of them. When it comes to organising your clothes, the first step is to throw out everything that doesn’t fit well or look good on you (which includes most things). Once you’ve done this, make sure that every item has its own place in your wardrobe. So, nothing gets lost or forgotten about—even if it’s just for a few minutes while you’re doing something else! here is our guide on How to organise your wardrobe:
Throw out clothes you don’t wear.
One of the most important things you can do to keep your wardrobe organised is to throw out clothes that you don’t wear.
This might sound like a no-brainer, but it’s surprisingly easy to forget about items in your wardrobe that you never wear or don’t fit well anymore. If you’re feeling overwhelmed by this task, start with the easiest and most obvious: donate unwanted clothing at a local charity shop or drop off items at Goodwill. You’ll be surprised by how much material there is in one closet—and how easy it is to find something new and exciting!
If donating doesn’t appeal to you because of ethical concerns about where exactly this stuff ends up (or if even donating isn’t an option), consider selling off some of your clothes online through sites like Amazon and eBay instead; these sites offer some protection against fraud from sellers who may not have legitimate intentions towards their buyers (like stealing personal data).
Organise your clothes by season and colour.
Organising your clothes by season and colour is a great way to start. You can group together all the items of clothing that are currently in season.
- For example, if you want to keep track of what you’re wearing this winter, put them in one basket or drawer
- If there are clothes that aren’t currently in season but that you still want to wear, put them where they won’t get mixed up with other items (like inside a laundry basket). This will help avoid any confusion when it comes time for cleaning!
Ban all clothes from the floor.
- Put all clothes on a hanger.
- Hang it from a pole or rack, but don’t hang them too high up.
- Don’t let your clothes pile up in one place like this:
Clean your wardrobe at least once a year.
If you’re anything like me, your wardrobe is probably a mess. You’ve got clothes everywhere and it can be hard to find anything when you want it.
To keep your clothes organised, I suggest doing the following:
- Clean your wardrobe at least once a year (or more). This will help ensure that everything stays in its place and doesn’t get messed up by dust or dirt. It also helps to make sure that things aren’t getting damaged by being moved around too much!
- Organise by season and colour/texture. For example: winter coats should be stored in the winter section of my closet while summer dresses go into their own drawer so they don’t get mixed up with each other when I’m looking for something specific during different seasons!
- Ban all clothes from the floor entirely because having an unorganized mess downstairs just makes things harder when trying to organize stuff upstairs afterwards.”
When you have a tidy wardrobe, it is easier to find the clothes you need. You will also have more space in your wardrobe for other things like shoes, coats and bags. When there are no clothes lying around on the floor or in boxes, it’s much easier to clean your room!
You’ll be able to see what items of clothing fit together and which ones don’t belong together. So, when someone asks, “Do these jeans go with these shoes?” or “Should I wear those pyjamas tonight?” You’ll know exactly how you’re going to answer!
That’s it! You’ve organised your wardrobe. Now, don’t forget to keep it up.
