Episode 23– How to Declutter your Wardrobe

Decluttering a wardrobe

Efficiently declutter your wardrobe!  In this podcast Lesley and Ingrid talk about their step by step process of how to declutter your wardrobe.

Decluttering your wardrobe can seem a huge task that you keep delaying because you're overwhelmed and don't know where to start. Today’s podcast is all about action and how you actually declutter your wardrobes. We give our listeners an explanation of our tried and tested process. All good projects start with a plan and you can find our step by step process here on how to declutter your wardrobe.

In this episode we discuss:

  • Step 1: Get ready to declutter and prepare (bin bags, make your bed, laundry basket, damp clothes and hoover so you can do some cleaning, have new hangers ready)  
  • Step 2: Start with wardrobes so you make faster progress. One wardrobe at a time. Flat surface or bed to create categories. Either pre-sort or put it all on one pile first and the sort.  
  • Step 3: Clean the wardrobe. Hoover and then wipe. Don't forget to dust the hangers and the rail.
  • Step 4: Ask yourself questions. Do you love it, do you wear it, why are you struggling to make decisions? Listen to podcast episode 22 if you'd like to know more.
  • Step 5: Hold each item up. Button it up, straightened it up, put it on the right hanger, take off metal hangers, try it on.
  • Step 6: Put back in what you want and don't worry about categorisation yet. 
  • Step 7: What you no longer want; charity, ragging, selling, stuff for other people, mending and dry cleaning, items to return to friends. Bag up and don't overfill. 
  • Step 8: Get it out to the charity shop the same day.
  • Step 9: Repeat the process in your drawers and other wardrobes.
