Organizing Your Wardrobe

It's tough, but needs to be done, soon. Too many people buy too many things, then toss old stuff away because they think it's outdated, they got bored of wearing them, or those stuff don't suit their style anymore. If you're a bargain hunter, you would understand why our closets are stuffed with random trivial things we didn't even remember buying.

For those with serious wardrobe problems and need some serious organizing, do the following:

1. Take everything out from your wardrobe, yes, everything, you want to make a new start by organizing your wardrobe, right?

2. While you're doing that, it will occur to you what to do with all those awkward shirts and age old jeans, so separate them into 2 categories: home and away. Remember that it's all about your style, so if you can imagine yourself wearing them, put them in home.

3. Clean up your wardrobe, you can dust it and put closet freshener in it

4. When you put things back, if the space in your wardrobe allows you, you can separate things by their use. Winter and summer outerwear should be put in different space. Tank tops and shirts should go together. It's really up to how you want it. You can categorize it based on frequency, season, or anything you want.

5. Remember how you categorize it in the first place, and next time you buy new stuff, take an extra 5 seconds to think where it should be put. 5 sec isn't a long time, but it can help you A LOT in the future.

Extra tips for everyone also:

- If you have a particular part in your wardrobe that is barely touched, I recommend you open them every once in a while (twice a week should be fine) so your clothes wouldn't get damp and dusty, as you give them air circulation

- Jeans are tough hardware, you shouldn't be washing them too much. I read and heard somewhere that the optimal washing frequency for jeans is once every six months. I personally wouldn't follow through with this advice though, because I use my denims very frequently, and I sit in a LOT of public, less than sanitary places. I usually go about once every 3 months, and no less than that.

- As for any other type of clothing (except underwear of course), keep this in mind, thinner fabrics (tanks, blouse, shirts) need more washing, around 2-3 wears before washing, while thicker fabrics (jackets, blazer, cardigans) can be washed less often, around 4-6 times before washing.

Last piece of advice is be smart on picking what to buy, because you now they have to stay a long time in your closet!
