Is your wardrobe a messy and cluttered place? Do you struggle to fit all of your clothes and shoes in there? Is the bottom of your wardrobe a dumping ground for unwanted and unworn clothing?

If your wardrobe is a shambles then you need the help of this handy and helpful guide! We have some excellent tips to help you get the clean and organized wardrobe that you’ve always wanted, so why not get started right away?

1) Clear out!
The first step to a tidy and clean wardrobe is to have a big sort out. Put aside a few hours of your time to go through every single item in your wardrobe. Separate everything into four different piles: one for keeping, one for donating to charity, one for selling and one for going into storage. In the process of cleaning house, be strict when it comes to making your decisions. Don’t hold on to clothes that no longer fit, and make sure that anything that’s going to be donated to charity is in suitable condition.

2) Organizers.
There are lots of wardrobe organizers available on the market, so why not shop around to see what might suit your needs? You can find things such as drawers and extra rails which can provide more space, or you might even just consider purchasing plastic storage tubs for your shoes or old clothes. You might also be interested in buying a hanging shoe rack for the inside of your wardrobe. These can fit quite a few pairs of shoes, but be wary that – once full – they can take up quite a lot of room! If you usually store your shoes
in your wardrobe then you might want to consider purchasing a shoe rack for your hallway instead. This can save you lots of space, and make it much easier to find the shoes that you’re looking for, just when you need them!

3) Seasonal wardrobes.
Once you’ve gotten rid of the clothes you’re donating or selling, you’ll be left with clothes to keep and clothes to store. One of the best ways to keep your wardrobe clutter-free is to sort it out seasonally. Your heavy winter jumpers and large coats don’t need to be taking up room in your wardrobe in the summer! Decide what you want to keep inside for the next few months and put everything else into storage. Try vacuum bags or under-the-bed storage for quick and easy ways to store unseasonal clothes!

4) Replace your old hangers.
Breathe a little life into your wardrobe (and stop clothes falling off of your plastic hangers) by investing in non-slip ones instead. These are a great way to ensure that your clothes stay just where you want them to, and they can be purchased in a wide range of colors and styles to coordinate with any bedroom! Don’t just bin your old hangers – if they’re still in good condition then why not see if your local charity shops could benefit from them?

5) Scented sachets.
Keep your clothes smelling clean and fresh by purchasing scented sachets for your wardrobe. These are available in lots of different scents so you’re sure to be able to find something that you like! Simply place them in the bottom of your wardrobe to allow the scents to permeate your clothes, quickly, easily and cost effectively!
