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?

      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!

    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.

      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

    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.

    • December 10, 2015 / 3:32 pm

      Hahaha like that, the will never wear items

  5. December 10, 2015 / 2:43 pm

    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.

    • December 10, 2015 / 8:11 am

      You’re welcome and 6 weeks seems manageable for me

  7. December 10, 2015 / 5:52 am

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

    • December 10, 2015 / 7:54 am

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

  8. December 10, 2015 / 12:15 am

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

    • December 10, 2015 / 2:06 am

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

  9. December 9, 2015 / 7:05 pm

    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

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

  10. December 9, 2015 / 6:01 pm

    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

  11. December 9, 2015 / 5:53 pm

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

    • December 9, 2015 / 5:59 pm

      Oh boy, definitely need to do it soon

  12. December 9, 2015 / 4:30 pm

    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

    • December 9, 2015 / 2:01 pm

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

  13. December 9, 2015 / 12:38 pm

    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

    • December 9, 2015 / 9:26 am

      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.
