Simple decluttering tips

  • Slimline velvet hangers are the most important things in your wardrobe. They’re a great space-saver, making your wardrobe smarter and more organized. Definitely a game changer.
  • Don’t be afraid to roll your jeans and pants and pack into drawers instead of hanging them up.
  • The clothes you wear more regularly need to be accessible and easy to get to, so place these in more prominent positions.

  • Ask yourself, is your wardrobe filled with clothes you don’t wear anymore? Are you likely to wear them anytime soon?
  • Think about which pieces you’ll be wearing for the next few months, and those you won’t wear until next season – if you’re not wearing items, pack them away and rotate your wardrobe as much as possible.
  • Spend a day - or two - trying on all your clothes. Did you fall in love with forgotten pieces? Or realize that a once-favorite dress no longer fits?
