Ten Wardrobe Decluttering Tips List

1. Designate a time when you can attend to this task without any interruptions, turn your phone off, get some snacks and put on some music

2. Start by taking everything out of the wardrobe and plonk it on the floor, on your bed or over the back of your sofa

3. Sort your clothes into category piles – work, casual, party, gym, and lounging

4. Tackle one category at a time, sorting them into five piles – keep, ditch, decide, donate and sell

5. Items you know that you want to stay put straight back into the wardrobe

6. The ditch pile is for any items of clothing you think no one else will want, which you can take straight outside now and dump in the rubbish bin

7. Those garments you need to decide if you are keeping, you’ll need to try them on, look in the mirror and give yourself an honest assessment; allow one minute per item

8. Some of your clothes may be worth donating to a charity shop or a clothing bank so take those there tomorrow

9. Items of value such as designer garments you can sell via re-sale websites and online auctions

10. Bag up the things you are ditching, recycling and selling, then put the clothes you want to keep back in the wardrobe (make sure you clean the inside of the closet first, though!)

Pat yourself on the back, order a celebratory takeaway and open a bottle of vino, cheers!

If you have items of value, such as designer coats, clothing, bags or shoes, you can sell these online. eBay is a great place to start; all you need to do is open an account, take pictures, write a description and post the items off to buyers. There are plenty of companies that sell the items for a commission. Some will even go to your home to appraise the pieces for you. Try Cudoni and Rebelle if you want to sell designer clothing. In the summer, you can always have a yard sale or trot along to a car boot sale and flog your wares there which is fun.
