As you know, we have a few clutter issues here, which I think are holding me back from my goal of living a simpler life. It’s something I’ve not yet been able to get on top of.
We’re none of us particularly tidy, but I have some bad habits I need to own up to. These are:
- not putting clothes away after they have been washed – I get distracted, and they end up on chairs or left in the ironing basket
- dropping things anywhere when I am in a rush
Today, I decided to spend an hour sorting out the clotthes in my room. I just have one wardrobe, so I tend to swap my clothes around in the spring and autumn, keeping those I’m not wearing in under bed storage bags. First I put away the Christmas party clothes. Then I went through everything else and pulled out a very tired suit and a pair of trousers that don’t fit properly to go to the charity shop.
Next I sorted the clothes into different types: work, walking and weekend and put them into order on the hangers. T-shirts and tops are folded on the top shelf and then I made separate piles for fleeces, weekend jumpers/cardigans and jogging trousers.
Now all I’ve got to do is keep it like this!
How do you organise your clothes?
Until next time, Tawney x
