Declutter your wardrobe in three easy steps…

You may know by now that I am moving house in the very near future (less than two weeks eeep!)… packing and sorting out my current home has taken up all of my spare time lately. It can be such an overwhelming task and I have definitely felt like it’s just not possible at times! Nevertheless I have persevered and slowly I am getting it done. So far I have sorted out the kitchen, lounge room, bedroom and have now finished the clothes room (yes, I have a whole room of clothes to pack!). I had been putting it off as it was such a daunting task, it had been a while since my last Spring clean and there was just so much to get through… BUT I am happy to report that it is done and I couldn’t be happier.

So. today I wanted to share some tips on how to declutter your wardrobe….

Maybe you are moving too or maybe you would like to cull your clothes and create a capsule wardrobe or perhaps you just need to reduce your wardrobe to make getting dressed less of a headache. Trust me when I say decluttering your wardrobe is one of the best things you can do to simplify your everyday life!

One of the most important steps before you start to clear out your wardrobe is starting with the right frame of mind. I find that I really need to set my mind to it to seriously cull my clothes. You need to remove sentimental value and just think practically. While sorting, ask yourself a few questions: Have I worn this in the last six months? Think about the wearability of the item. Can it be worn with other pieces in your wardrobe?  Does it fit you? If you answered no to any of these questions then it has to go!

Separate your clothes into piles as you go. The items to keep,  the pieces you want to donate to charity and the ones that you can sell. I find I have a lot of pieces that still have the tags attached (eeek!) or ones have only been worn a handful of times… these are the pieces I find hard to let go of (the guilt factor gets me every time!). One of the ways I have managed to make this process a little easier, and remove some of that guilt, is to sell these pieces on SHEDD app.

Shedd is a simple concept, connecting  like-minded buyers and sellers of all things fashion. The best part about Shedd is that it is so easy to use. Simply take one good quality photo of your item (this can be done in or out of the app). I find laying the item on a flat surface or wearing the item the best way to showcase your piece. Try to use natural light also and make sure the item is ironed and presented nicely to maximise interest! Next write a brief description including brand and sizing information, then finish with a few key hashtags to make your item searchable. Upload it and you are done! It literally takes less than 2 mins to start selling. Potential buyers can then communicate with you on the app and when you are both happy, meet up to exchange the item. So easy right? Such a great way to turn your unwanted items into quick cash.. clearing space in your wardrobe for new pieces!

Finish off your wardrobe clear out by styling your space. Maybe sort your clothes into colour order or into similar styles and arrange your shoes and bags neatly on a shelf or bookcase. I can’t wait to finally move into the new place and style my closet… now filled with only my favourite and most worn pieces!
