Wardrobe wars sounds a bit intimidating, doesn’t it? But every girl reading this has got to admit that they’ve been through some sort of wardrobe war in their time on this earth. It’s just something we have to deal with, and something we hate dealing with. Whilst a wardrobe war might not come around as often, a wardrobe standoff probably happens every day. This is where you know you need to sort your wardrobe out, and it’s just staring you dead in the face until you finally shut the door and forget about it all. So, if you feel as though you’re creeping close to the dreaded wardrobe war, we’ve got some tips for you that should help you through the whole ordeal. Have a read on to find out more.
Tackling The Hard Part
This is the first thing that you want to try and do. The hard part can go on forever, which is what your wardrobe would want! We’re talking about clearing out all of the things you’re not sure of, or the things you know you definitely don’t want and say goodbye to them. This is the hardest part of the wardrobe war, as everything you see you’ll want to keep. Even the clothes that might have been buried deep at the bottom, ones that are so far out of fashion, nobody would dare wear them. However, finding that self-control comes with a little compromise. First, you have to think of all what you would wear things with if you’re not going to throw them away. Secondly, you need to think about what you’re going to replace them with. That’s the best compromise you can give, because at least then you know you’re getting something new, and you’re going to be more inclined to throw the old things away.
Organising your wardrobe is the second task. All of the things that you have just cleared out that you might not need, for example, your winter clothes, could go into clothes storage. It’s a safe way of keeping your clothes stored, where you know they are, and in what order you know they are. You can store your clothes anywhere that’s out of the way of your wardrobe. Some people chose an actual storage unit, whereas others prefer to simply put it in the loft for safe storage. You then need to organise your wardrobe so that it at least looks a little bit neat and organised. That way, you’ll be able to find clothes so much easier when it comes around to it.
If you want to save space, then you’re going to have to mix a few of the tips we’ve given you already about organising, with a new purchase or two. You can get a plastic chest of drawers that are designed to go into wardrobes. This could be such a space-saving option for you, and it could even allow you to buy more clothes. Just make sure you aren’t adding to your mess with this option.
