WARDROBE ORGANISATION IN FIVE EASY STEPS Amanda Lecaude, Organising You

Can you feel the change in the air? The warmer weather is approaching and many of us are starting to think about changing what we wear and possibly putting away our winter clothing for another year. Unfortunately we often get teased during spring and have to endure several seasons in the coming weeks but be assured the sunshine and warmth isn’t too far away! Firstly let me ask you a few questions when it comes to what is in your wardrobe. These are to get you thinking and provide food for thought: 1. Are you happy with your wardrobe and its contents? 2. Do you often say I haven’t got anything to wear? 3. What do you like about your wardrobe? 4. What are your dislikes about your wardrobe? 5. Do you often say I can’t find …..? 6. When was the last time you went through your wardrobe – this year, last year or a long time ago? 7. Do you change over your wardrobe according to seasons?

8. Do you want to avoid wasting money and get the most out of what you already have? 9. Do you love looking at glossy magazines and dream of having one of those beautifully organised wardrobes you see in pictures? 10. Do you have an idea of what you spend on clothes per annum? There is no right or wrong answer to any of the above questions and the approach you take at the end of the day needs to be what works for you and you only. It is important to understand what you want from your wardrobe before you go about organising it. When it comes to wardrobe organisation you need to be able to find what you need, when you need to wear it and for it to be clean and ready to just put on (not needing to be repaired or dry cleaned). Let me share this with you - Do you know that most people only use 20% of their wardrobes 80% of the time! This means that the other 80% of your clothing is simply taking up valuable space and often isn’t used. The challenge is not to own as many clothes and shoes as possible but to wear all of your clothes and to only wear what you love and feel great in.
