Wardrobe Decluttering

 Over the weekend I decided to declutter my apartment, more importantly declutter my wardrobe. I have been wanting to do a wardrobe update for the longest time but I always told myself I needed to have money to buy new things to update my wardrobe. Funny thing is when I do take money from my pay  and dedicate to my wardrobe, I end up buying more things and not actually do any decluttering.

Well enough was enough, I decided to declutter whilst I am on the verge of being broke.

I went through all the clothes I have in my wardrobe and chose what to keep, what to giveaway to charity, what to send to my mum for my cousins in Africa and what to bin. Once I had this figured out, I went about decluttering my wardrobe. I could not believe how many jeans I had that no longer fit me {insert sad face 🙁 }. Obviously having the same jeans for 5 years is a bit of a jean crime but I had loved them and officially wore them to their demise.

After throwing away all my jeans except 3 I realised I needed to replace these and an awesome idea came into mind, I could go shopping but wait where should I go at this time of the year? I hate dislike huge crowds so I figured the only way for me to replace my jeans is to shop online which I love. I am always shopping on either H&M or New Look so this time I decided to check out M and M direct. I have been a lover of their items for the longest time but never ventured into getting anything because by the time I am done with H&M and New Look I am literally broke.

As it is the Christmas period a lot of shops both online and in store  have amazing sales going on and MnM direct is not different, they currently have a ‘half price or less‘ sale. Obviously I am mostly shopping for jeans so I have happy to see they have a sale on Bootcut Jeans too. With the current weather in the UK a good pair of bootcut jeans paired with your favourite ankle boots is exactly what the doctor ordered. There is free delivery when you spend £60 or more, just use GB60 code at check-out.

I made a huge dent in my wardrobe and managed to declutter my entire bedroom and created room for some new clothes including jeans, presents and maybe some amazon orders too 🙂 . The idea is not to clutter my home again but to have a planned declutter session every 6 weeks, so my next declutter will be just before the January sales 🙂 – coincidence I think not.

When was the last time you declutter your wardrobe or your home?

  • We need to declutter our closets before this year ends! We’re giving some to charity too!

    • Hope you manage to and I am sure the charities will appreciate it loads

  • Oh man. I need to do that so badly, but it is hard! There’s the clothes have memories (old cheer shirts), the clothes I want to fit in again (so what if they’re a size zero) and then the “Oh I will wear this next week! Promise!!” clothes. Sheesh!

    • Hahaha, Tiffany they have gat to go. Give them to a new home lol

  • I usually declutter my wardrobe during the spring/spring cleaning but I’m actually planning on doing it again soon. At my mom’s school they do clothing drives for local charities so I think I’ll donate a lot of my old clothes this year <3

    • Never heard of clothing drives before but we do have some local charities on the high street in almost all towns in the UK its lovely.

  • At least once a month I declutter my closet and my children’s clothes. I try to do it regularly so it’s not overwhelming at once.

    • That’s really good, I want to try six weeks and see how I get on.

  • I did a major, major, MAJOR decluttering earlier this summer. It took me 10 days! I may have donated too many of my clothes though. lol

    • Hahaha I think I am in the same position, tonight am heading to Christmas dinner and realised the dress I wanted to wear I gave away lool

  • Truthfully I haven’t decluttered my closets in over a year, but I preferably would like to declutter seasonly. I need to make the effort to purge all of my too small and will never wear this items.

    • Hahaha like that, the will never wear items

  • Oh it has been so long since I’ve done this and I totally need to. Every time I get into my closet, I shake my head at how much is in there.

    • I think this is why when I moved into my apartment decided for an open and simple closet so I can see what I have and do not need

    I have to admit I have been decluttering my home for about 3 months now. Hoarding is a past time for me. I love the idea of decluttering every 6 week which I am going to be doing now. Thanks for the idea.

    • You’re welcome and 6 weeks seems manageable for me

  • For just a week or two, my wardrobe is full of clutter. Thanks for the tips and reminder. I need this.

    • Wardrobes can get clutter pretty easily and quickly especially around this time of the year

  • I have grand plans to do this with every season change. Sadly it has been way too long.

    • Hahahaha we all do don’t we, just do it when you get a moment

  • Yeah, I’m in need of a major closet overhaul too! The clothes seem to pile up faster than I can weed through them (first world problems …). You did great though, you’ve inspired me to get to it!

    • Thank you Megan, definitely first world problems

  • I am in desperate need of a wardrobe declutter! I have so many items that I don’t wear any more and I’m running out of room!

    • Get at it girl lol, very important to declutter and make room for an update

  • I’m in desperate need of a decluttering session. Not just clothes either; I need to go through so many things that are just taking up space.

    • It’s always nice to declutter the entire house but again it’s about finding the time to do it

  • I really need to declutter. I currently cannot get into my closet because of the heap of clothes sitting in front of it!

    • Oh boy, definitely need to do it soon

  • I don’t even want to think about decluttering. Surely I would benefit from cleaning out the closet, but there is just so much going on right now – perhaps in January!

    • Hahaha I can understand that but for me now was the time

  • This is a great reminder that I need to declutter my closets! I have too many things that I don’t wear regularly. It’s time to sort and purge some of the stuff!

    • It’s always nice to purge and create room for better items lol

  • I really need to declutter my closet. I’ll have to wait until I wrap all the gifts hiding in there. An organized closet is on my to-do list for the new year.

    • I wanted to declutter now

  • I need to declutter my closet as well. It’s nice that you were able to sort your stuff and was able to giveaway some to charity.

    • Thank you Franc, it feels good to declutter

  • I rotate my clothing by seasons, so when Summer comes around I remove all of my winter clothing from the closet and store them under my bed. Then I pull out all of my Summer clothing and hang it up. This way I only have the clothes in my closet for the season that we are in.

    • I so want to do that but since majority of my clothes are smaller I only have a few winter stuff which I hang up or in drawers but that’s a good idea.
