It's Time For A Spring Clean

Wednesday, May 03, 2017 3 Comments A+ a-



I don't know about you but having a clean room, clean desk, simply a clean environment is what gets my mind pumping. There's nothing better than having an empty laundry basket, clothes all ironed and away, bed freshly made and having a clear space to start a fresh. Fresh mind. Keeping me motivated to do more, to do better.

I've seen a couple of tweets recently with people clearing out their wardrobe, for the new season, for new clothes or simple to clear out the ones that you haven't worn for 3 years but you've been holding to and it's time to get rid.

Since sharing a room with my other half, wardrobe space has been a bit tight as well as recently purchasing new clothing items for our travels, space has gotten that much tighter.

So this Bank Holiday Monday, I had decided it was time for my spring clean out. Wardrobe and all of that picky items that's been trapped in the draws and cabinets for the past few months. Oh don't even get me started with the make up I have that I NEVER wear, so let's begin with clothes.

I for one am not your fashion icon kind of girl, I am your very average all day everyday black leggings girl, big jumper, casual blouse or a long top kind of girl - not to mention purely navy, grey and black clothing with the occasional colour. I am also that girl who complains she doesn't have enough clothes but yet refuses to wear the other items hurried at the back of her wardrobe because they're just not "me" anymore - so why do I still have them? Meh that's what this post is for, to tell you I'm getting rid.

I still have tags on some items, so those they be heading over to depop (incoming plug) go check out those new items, along with some of the other halves shirts he no longer fits in.

The ones that are in decent condition but are not selling worthy I shall donate to charity, but I guess the younger cousins can have first pick, if they may.


Now the items I have chosen to keep, these will be organised into a few sections - clothes I'll be packing for travelling (as these are super summer clothes, I won't be needing them this horrible British spring weather) - winter clothes, I say this but I don't have much as I like to layer more than anything - and in general I like to section my clothes from blouses, blazers, dresses and evening dresses and each section in colour order from white to black. 

Have you done your spring cleaning already?
Do you have a particular way of
organising your clothes?

I've also just done a wardrobe clean out -- it was getting impossible to fit things back into my closet after doing laundry, so I finally bit the bullet and got rid of things that don't fit my style anymore. How have you liked selling on Depop? I'm doing Thredup for the first time ever, and I'm hoping it's a positive experience.

I share your sentiment in having everything clean and put away. Organization makes my life feel like it's in order (duh, right?) Yes, I'm guilty of holding on to those pieces that I've paid a ton for but just never wore out because I didn't have the confidence or urge to? Also guilty of still having tags on things... it's a curse I tell you.

I honestly prefer leggings and a t-shirt but corporate America frowns upon that so I have to have some nicer pieces.

Anyway, I'm happy that you were able to clean things out - must have felt good. Now, on to the makeup! LOL

I don't own many clothes so most of my spring cleaning is decluttering all of my rubbish! I am a bit of a hoarder myself :') although it was nice to read your process!
