STOP TOSSING YOUR CLOTHES ON THE FLOOR & READ THIS

Sometimes all you need is a lick of paint to freshen up your house for sale. But in other instances, investing in a serious overhaul will translate to serious money come sale-day.

LIST 

Before you start tossing clothes all over the floor, it is a good idea to go through what you really need and then what you actually have.

List the staple pieces that you wear religiously, any items that may need replacing and anything that no longer suits your style.

DECLUTTER 

Separate the essentials, your statement pieces and most importantly – anything you haven’t worn in its season.

Shorts you didn’t wear at all the last summer? Donate pile.

Jumpers you didn’t wear at all last winter? Donate pile.

Jeans that haven’t fit since 2008? Donate pile.

BUILD 

Open wardrobes are extremely popular. The downside? You need to keep them really tidy.

Keep a mix of simple basics and a few statement pieces in your open racking.

Store bulky, frilly or longer items in a closed space, like a built-in robe with doors.

Use drawers or a tallboy for folded items such as jumpers, active wear or singlets.

Search Pinterest for inspiration, use our ‘DRESS’ board as a start –https://au.pinterest.com/harrisreadl/dress/

Use the IKEA website to map out what storage you will need – http://www.ikea.com/au/en/catalog/categories/departments/bedroom/bedroom_storage/

ORGANISE 

When organising your wardrobe, place the pieces you wear the most frequently in the most easily accessible space.

Storing jackets, coats and formal dresses towards the rear or on higher shelves will allow more space for the items you need the most.

Use baskets or boxes to keep scarves, belts or bags from looking untidy.

Now you only have what you need, like and fits – you’ll be sure to wear it all!
