Isn't it time you declutter your wardrobe?

This is something I try to do on a regular basis but let’s face it it’s not the most exciting of household chores but there are some great benefits to taking on the task.

You’ll unveil things you probably haven’t seen in a while, reveal tops that have been hiding on hangers for months and have all the things you need to create style savvy new outfits as if you’ve just bought them from a shop. You will clear space in your wardrobe too (Cough a cough) get more clothes.

Sounds good right let’s get started
I like to use a clothing rail to separate the clothes I am defiantly getting rid of and the stuff I’m not sure about.
Anything I’m keeping obviously stays in the wardrobe.
This collapsible clothing rail cost me about £20 from Amazon and is great for when I’m going to the boot sale. When I’m not using it I simply take it apart and store it in a cupboard.
My first rule is if I haven’t worn it in over a year it can go – too often I am getting rid of stuff with tags on it but I know that if I haven’t worn it yet I probably never will so there is no need to keep it.
Does it still fit? - forget about waiting to gain or lose weight so you can wear it just let it go! And if you managed to stick to that New Year’s resolution diet well done you deserve a shopping spree!!
Does it look good on me? – You may want to get a second opinion from a friend here – clearing out your wardrobe is a great chance to reinvent your look so take advantage of it. You may think that that bodycon dress looks great on you but your GOOD friends may beg to differ.
Is it in good condition?- Lost buttons, faded from being washed to many times, rips snags. 
Most minor damage can be repaired by good dry cleaners but if can’t let it go
Winter woollies are bulky and take up a lot of space. I personally like to pack them away into boxes during the spring and summer months then get them back out in autumn,

I have found that investing in nonslip hangers has given a sense of uniformity to my wardrobe and browsing easier.
JML's flocked coat hangers are the business! They are nice and thin so you save a lot of space and the flocking prevents the clothing falling off.
They also come in a range colours and for £21 for 50 you really can’t go wrong!
