It’s a scene that’s probably not too unfamiliar to many of us; handbags were mixed with hats with spare pillows, bedding, winter clothes and summer clothes; and there’s no judgment here, we understand how easy it is, without the framework, for a wardrobe to suddenly become unmanageable.
As with all makeovers, before we could get too handy with our solutions, a declutter and cull was in order. A perfect chance to create ‘donate’, ‘throw away’ and ‘keep’ piles, Jenny was pleasantly surprised at what she uncovered throughout the sorting phase. She explains, “I was amazed at what had sat idle in my wardrobe for years and not been worn. I could never find anything and tended to wear the same things; items that usually never made it to my wardrobe as there wasn’t room!”
For those of you about to embark on your own wardrobe overhaul, embrace this stage of the process. It’s a great opportunity to lighten your clothing load. If there are items in there that no longer fit, you haven’t worn in over twelve months or you’ve simply grown tired of, get ruthless and get rid of them. Remember though, if you are donating any clothing, to wash and dry those garments carefully before bagging these up for charity.
