Well I knew that I had a lot of stuff, just not quite how much!
The hanging rail had to be expanded to include my bed. This is because I overloaded the hanging rail and it all fell over! (curses!)
So I now have 2 large suitcases full of clothes (since when did I own so many neon items?) and a clearer wardrobe space!
I always read posts of people who have beautifully organised spaces and sort everything by category. I do this once every few years and then in a week or so it’s all a mess. So this time I’m attempting to group things together by colour. I’m hoping this means that things I wear together are more likely to be near each other!
I also used this as an opportunity to actually sort out how the things were hanging. I have been known to keep 6 dresses on one hanger before now, and the number of things half done up, inside out etc was ridiculous!
I have to say taking photos of this has been enlightening! And it has made it a slightly less painful experience. I mean, who really needs 5 hoodies? Especially when I never wear them!
Now most posts I read about what to do once you’ve sorted your wardrobe advise you to go through once you’ve finished and write a list of things you need to fill any gaps. I DEFINITELY do not need to do this!
