Helping to de-clutter

When meeting new clients it is always important to access how much storage space is needed in order to create a design that will accommodate all the items we need. However, there are often a lot of items that we don't need.. this is a cleaver trick to help you de-clutter your wardrobe. 

It's accepted wisdom that with very few exceptions, it's likely that clothing that you haven't worn in six months is clothing you will not wear again. It could be donated and used by someone who needs it. We've been thinking about this as we pack up our sweaters and jeans and (finally) pull out our summer clothes! We have good intentions but it's not always easy to keep track and apply the six month rule...

Turn around all the hangers in your closet so the hooks are pointing towards you (wrong way round).

When you wear something, put it back with the hook the normal way.

In six months, any hanger still facing the wrong way is holding an item you haven't worn, ready for the donation bag.


We're really going to try and get serious on the regular wardrobe clearouts...more tips and ideas are welcome - let us know in the comments below if you follow the six month rule.
