the clearout challenge continues! today i've been blitzing my room so hopefully i'll be done with this challenge by the end of the month.... maybe?
today i'm bringing you my wardrobe clearout. i always culling my clothes throughout the year to make room for new things but this time i was ruthless. i also finally got around to clearing out my shoes, accessories, dvd's etc which was so therapeutic! it also means i now have a massive selection of goodies to put on ebay.
♥ i tackled one wardrobe at a time, else this task can appear rather daunting.
♥ for the first clothes wardrobe i started by taking everything out of the wardrobe and placing them in two piles 'keep' and 'sell'. for this to work you really have to be ruthless. ask yourself 'when did i last wear this? do i feel nice when i wear it?' if in doubt try it on. if i'm not sure i try it on and ask my brother. (that boy tells it like it is so if i look fat he will be sure to tell me!)
♥ i then put everything back in neatly. bags were arranged by use/type and clothes arranged by type then colour.
♥ i used a similar approach for my second wardrobe but have keep all of my school/work clothes to one side.
♥ for shoes i went through and instantly got rid of any shoes that were looking a little worse for wear. then i took out any shoes that i seriously thought i wouldn't get round to wearing again.
♥ i think i must be one of the only people in the world who still has a video player! a lot of the videos are things that i just wouldn't ever get round to watching again so i went through every dvd and video and got rid of everything that either didn't work, was missing the disk or i simply wasn't interesting in watching.
♥ all of the miscellaneous items in the second and third wardrobe were the hardest bit. i am a massive hoarder when it comes to keeping 'memories' so again i had to be ruthless. 'will i really remember that event in 10 years time? did it actually affect my life that significantly?' if not then it went straight into the bin or the ebay/charity shop pile.
i'm so glad i've finally got round to doing my wardrobe! it's cut out so much time when i get ready in the morning because now i know where everything is!
are any of you doing the clearout challenge? it's not too late to join in!
