Do you own too many clothes, yet always crave more? Here are my tips to help you stop buying clothes that will rarely if ever be worn.
I have a love for books, I have always had. One of my dreams as a child was to own a bookshelf full of books that would be mine. My dream quickly came true, but before I knew it, my bookshelf was quite full. I knew I had to set some limits and let go of some of my books to make space for new ones.
This is when I unconsciously developed a decluttering approach that years later would become my staple approach as a professional organiser to help my clients let go. This is how this approach looked for me.
No matter how many clothes you have in your wardrobe, I’m pretty sure you’ve caught yourself saying at some stage “I’ve got nothing to wear” and felt the need to hit the shops and buy more. But have you noticed that the women who tend to be the happiest with their wardrobe are the ones who don’t own, by choice, so many clothes?

Now, a number is very subjective, and, despite the title of this blog, I’m certainly not going to tell you how many clothes you should own 😉 But I’d like to help you look at the number of items of clothing you have in your wardrobe and decide for yourself whether it’s too little, or too much, and how to make your wardrobe work harder for you so you don’t necessarily hit the shops.
Recipes accumulate quickly – whether we save them out of love for cooking or lack of inspiration, for sentimental or aspirational reasons etc. – and come in various forms. Without a proper recipe organisation system, it might be difficult to lay your hands on them when you need them, or even remember you saved those recipes in the first place. So here are a few tips to help you set up a proper recipe organisation system.
Have you been putting off again the “spring cleaning” your wardrobe is desperately screaming for? Is it because you can’t face the idea of making decisions on all these clothes and accessories you have accumulated in your wardrobe? Or because you’ve already tried to declutter and organise your wardrobe but lost the motivation along the way? Trust me, you’re not alone! The trick to getting started and to keep going is to focus on the benefits you’re going to get from having an organised wardrobe instead of focusing on the task itself. Here are six main benefits for you for having an organised wardrobe.
