How to Declutter Your Wardrobe for the New Season


Start by removing everything from your wardrobe.

You are going to start by removing everything from your wardrobe. Don't worry about sorting and organising at this stage, just take the clothes out and put them on the floor in front of you.

Don't worry about what you are going to do with the clothes you take out (give them away, donate them or sell), or how much time it will take; just get started!

Sort clothes according to colour, type and style.

  • Sort clothes according to colour. This is a great way to determine what goes together and what doesn't, especially if you're new to the whole "style" thing. If it's hard for you to tell what colours go well together, use a colour wheel (or ask someone who knows) as your guide!

  • Sort by type of clothing: tops or bottoms, dresses versus jackets/coats/sweaters etc., swimwear vs activewear etc.. For example: if there are two pairs of jeans in my pile--one denim pair with holes and one black pair that could pass for dress pants--I'll separate them into two piles based on their intended purpose.

  • Finally sort by style: classic pieces such as T-shirts and sweaters will always be useful; trendier pieces like jumpsuits might not work so well over time (unless they're very versatile).

Sell or donate items that you no longer wear or don't fit, they can be sold on eBay or to a secondhand store, or given to a charity

If you're not going to wear an item, it might be time to let it go. The easiest way to do this is by selling the item on eBay or giving it to charity. If you don't want to part with your clothes, there are still other ways that they can be reused:

  • Sell them on eBay

  • Donate them so that someone else can enjoy them

Put away all the clothes that you can wear now.

Now that you've gone through your wardrobe, it's time to put away all the clothes that you can wear now. This includes everything from jeans and t-shirts to dresses and blouses--basically anything that doesn't require special occasions or specific weather conditions.

Next, take out any garments that will fit in the next month or so but not much longer than that (like those new spring pieces). Toss them into storage bins or garment bags and store them somewhere safe until they're needed again.

Finally, sort through any items still left over after this process: if they fall into one of these categories of clothing: "I'll never wear this again," "I'll probably never wear this again," or "I might wear this again someday but not anytime soon." Get rid of them!

Take everything out again, and put in order those things that you want to keep.

Now that you've made a list of the things you want to keep, it's time to put them back in order. Take everything out of your wardrobe and lay it out on the bed or floor for another pass through. This time, make sure that each item has room for air circulation and does not touch another piece in any way (you may need some space around each garment). Then take another look at what's left--if there are still items hanging haphazardly from hangers or piled up in corners, consider getting rid of them. If they truly don't fit into your life anymore, let them go!

It's also important not just because it will make sorting easier but also because having enough light will help prevent eye strain as well as ensure that colors are true when shopping online later on (and who doesn't love saving money?). With these tips in mind while cleaning out their closets this fall season , kids can declutter their own wardrobes too!

Put these things back into the wardrobe, but do so differently this time.

As you're sorting through, you'll want to put items back into the wardrobe in a different way. You can use a clear plastic storage box to keep things tidy and easy to access. For example, hang shirts and dresses on hangers; stack pants and skirts on top of one another on a shelf; organize shoes by type (flats go here, heels there) or color; line up socks in pairs in the bottom drawer; place underwear in the top drawer under bras so they don't get forgotten about--you get the idea!

A shoe rack makes it easy for everyone who lives at home (or even just visits) to see what shoes are available without rummaging around at the back corners of closets where they're likely to disappear forever. If there isn't room for an actual shoe rack then just use shelves instead--but make sure these are sturdy enough not only for holding shoes but also heavy winter coats!

For those living alone with no partners/roommates who might share space with them: If possible try finding some kind of laundry hamper that can hold clothes waiting for washing as well as dirty ones coming out from being laundered - this will help avoid confusion about whose turn it is next time around too!

Don't forget your linen cupboard and storage shelves too!

If you have a linen cupboard or storage shelves, use them. Not only are they great places to store clothes you don't wear often (like those old jeans that are still in good shape), but they're also ideal for storing seasonal items like winter coats and summer dresses.

A good example of how to declutter your wardrobe

To help you get started, here's a good example of how to declutter your wardrobe:

  • Take a look at the clothes that don't fit or no longer suit your style. Do they need repairs? If so, take them to be repaired or ask someone else in your family if they can do it for you (they might have an easier time than if you were trying to do it yourself).

  • Remove all of these items from their hangers and put them into a pile on the floor next to where they are hanging now (or another place where they won't get lost). Make sure that there aren't any items mixed up with this pile--you want all of these clothes grouped together so that when it comes time for donating or selling them later on down the road, everything will go together nicely instead of getting mixed up with other pieces from different seasons/years/etcetera!
