How to Declutter Your Wardrobe in 5 Easy Steps

Do you feel like you have nothing to wear, even though your wardrobe is bursting at the seams? Do you struggle to find the clothes you actually want to wear amidst all the clutter? If so, it’s time to declutter your wardrobe. Here are five easy steps to help you get started:

Step 1: Set aside some time

Decluttering your wardrobe is a big task, so it’s important to set aside enough time to do it properly. Plan to spend a few hours, or even a whole day, going through your clothes.

Step 2: Take everything out

To really get a sense of what you own, take everything out of your wardrobe and lay it on your bed. This might feel overwhelming, but it’s important to see everything you own in one place.

Step 3: Sort into piles

Sort your clothes into piles based on what you want to keep, what you want to donate, and what needs repairing or altering. Be honest with yourself about what you actually wear and what you don’t. If you haven’t worn something in the past year, it’s probably time to let it go.

Step 4: Donate unwanted items

Once you’ve sorted your clothes, donate the items you no longer want. We work with many well-known British charities including Fareshare, The Fire Fighters Charity, Alzheimer’s Society, North West Cancer Research, Alder Hey and Everton in the Community. You can donate your pre-loved clothes here.

Step 5: Organize what’s left

Now that you’ve narrowed down your wardrobe, it’s time to organize what’s left. Invest in good-quality hangers and storage solutions to keep your clothes in good condition. Arrange your clothes by type, colour, or season, depending on what works best for you.

By following these five easy steps, you can declutter your wardrobe and create a more streamlined, organized space. Not only will you be able to find the clothes you actually want to wear, but you’ll also feel less overwhelmed by the clutter. So what are you waiting for? Start decluttering today!
