Shake it Off
If you don’t have enough space, then chances are you both need to give all your items a thorough look. Stare them down, hold them close, try them on. Do you love it? Do you REALLY love it? If the answer is no, it’s got to go. Have a few sorting bags at the ready, one for items to sell and one to donate. Trust us, if an item hasn’t been worn for a year, you are unlikely to miss it when it’s gone.
If you really aren’t sure, take a Howards Storage Bag and put the ‘maybe’ items in here. Store this at the top of the wardrobe or under the bed. If it’s still there in a year, it’s time for the items to be moved on. Howards Storage Bags are also great for storing seasonal items. In summer, store bulky coats and winter woolies and then swap over in winter. This will help free up some wardrobe space. Remember to store items clean and pop some Cedar Fresh Blocks into the bag to protect your clothes from moths and mildew.
Now you’ve freed up some space – which will make it easier to share the prime wardrobe real estate.
