When it comes to little life hacks and tips that are relatively easy to carry out but can have a huge impact on the quality of your everyday existence, having a well organised wardrobe is right up there at the top of the list. From making mornings easier to giving you a calmer sense of mind to overall improving your home’s aesthetic, an organised wardrobe can go a long way.
With that in mind, here are some suggestions for how to achieve this in your own home and organise your wardrobe is a great and positive way.
Utilise Really Useful Boxes
If you have a lot of clothing, you can sometimes fall victim to the ‘piles on piles’ fate in a wardrobe. This can be avoided by using a set of really useful boxes instead. Label these boxes with different seasons or occasions, or garment names, and pile them on time of each other rather than the loose clothing. This makes it a lot easier when the time comes to grab something from the bottom of the pile!
Things like scarves and shawls can look really messy when they don’t have anywhere appropriate to go in your wardrobe. This can easily be solved by the addition of a few cleverly placed hooks that can be used for hanging up. Not only does this move the scarves and shawls away from other clothes, but it also takes up some of the ‘dead space’ in a wardrobe and helps you to use every single inch.
Divide by Season
You aren’t going to need shorts in the winter or thick sweaters in the summer, so why should you have to look at them every day in your wardrobe during that particular season? If you can make more of an effort in terms of dividing your clothing collection up to be more appropriate for the season that you are in, you will find that you have much better time choosing an outfit every day. This is where those really useful boxes come into their own to make things much, much easier for you.
Hang More Garments
It can be very tempting to just keep folding clothes and placing them on top of one another. It looks neat in the moment, but all it achieves is you only ever picking out the items on the top of the pile while the stuff stuck at the bottom is left to get musty. Invest in a bunch of hangers and start to pay more attention to what should be on its own and what should be in a pile. Things like blouses and delicate shirts should always be hanging up on their own if you have the space.
Learn to Fold
It can be a real game changer if you can learn to fold your t-shirts in the correct way. Check online for the magic method, and you will find that you are able to stack your shirts with the logos on show for much easier decision making in the mornings.
