When it comes to making the most of your bedroom storage, often the best place to start is to assess what you already have. If you can get your hands on a spare clothes rail and get everything out of your existing wardrobe so you can get a proper look at it this makes things easier. You can then get down to the nitty gritty of deciding what stays and what goes. It often helps to recycle the clothes you love but just don’t wear, either because they don’t fit or they were one of those sale purchases where you thought you were getting a great bargain until you realised you already had 3 of the same item in your wardrobe when you got home! This way by donating to charity or giving to a friend you can feel good about passing them on to someone who will get some use out of them.
Once you’ve sorted through the clothes you can recycle another great way to get control back of your wardrobe is to sort your clothes into seasonal piles. This way you can make sure everything in you wardrobe is relevant now and anything you won’t be wearing for a few more months can be packed away. Vacuum pack storage bags are a great way to store these clothes, not only do they save space they also protect your clothes too from things like moths and moisture.
If you’re going to do the same with your shoes and pack away the ones you won’t be wearing for a while, it’s a good idea to clean them up and make any repairs needed like re-heeling before storing them away in boxes. When the right season comes back around to start wearing these shoes again they will be ready and waiting for you.
Another great tip is to look at how you’re storing your clothes, are you putting the right items in the right places? If your wardrobe is lacking in the hanging rail department, it might just be that some of the clothes on your hanging rails can actually be folded, therefore freeing up a bit of precious hanging rail space. There is nothing worse than taking an item from your wardrobe that you have spent time washing and ironing to find it has creased due to the fact it has been squeezed onto a hanging rail that really can’t take anymore.
With a little time and a bit of up keep you can have a organised wardrobe saving you time in the morning and making getting ready for the day just that little bit easier!
